    There are two new features for posting video on the site:

    The first is the vB Media Player mod that will allow you to post video from most sites EXCEPT To post video just take the highlighted item from the embed code:

    <object width="425" height="350"><param name="movie" value="[B][/B]"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="350"></embed></object>
    and hit the [​IMG] button when posting to insert that url.

    Now, has a different structure so for that I had to install the Embed bbCode modification. How is it different?

    Because of the URL structure that uses, it's not a simple task to find the code that you'll need to use. Here is what your users will have to do to embed a video:

    If you find a video on that you'd like to embed, click on the "Embed & Blog" button. You'll be presented with the html code to embed the video on a web site. That code will look something like this, and the important part is in bold.

    <object width="425" height="350">
    <param name="movie" value="[B]MjU3ODkx[/B]"></param>
    <embed src="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="425" height="350"></embed></object><br><font size=1><a href="">Cruise Ship Caught In Cyclone</a> - <a href="">Click Here for more great videos and pictures!</a></font>
    So to post videos from, just click on the [​IMG] button and insert the code needed between the tags.

    Confused? Me too....but it's the only thing that works. Good luck and enjoy.

    Nice work SRW....its too bad nothing works for really a great site....I have tried every hack code I know to get it to works on other V bulletin sites....maybe its a permissions thing I don't know.


    I take that back...its not working on the other VB's either...

    Just an update...

    The vbMedia Player mod was causing a BIG problem on the site's front page. The links were going to "" instead of "" so I had to uninstall it and re-install the previous media mod.

    Now in addition to the addition of the old mod I added a NEW mod to handle videos. They work the same way as the code works where all you enter is the text in bold below:

    <div><object width="425" height="250"><param name="movie" value="[B]7CTqzhq2kgP54eLJW[/B]"></param><param name="allowfullscreen" value="true"></param><embed src="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="425" height="250" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object><br /><b><a href="">#50.2 - Sufjan Stevens (MusicNow) - The lakes of Canada</a></b><br /><i>Uploaded by <a href="">lablogotheque</a></i></div>
