View Full Version : New! - YouTube vB code

Now you can embed YouTube videos in your forum posts and blog entries!

Just grab the movie code from the YouTube URL and add it between an opening ([ youtube ]) and closing ([ /youtube ]) youtube tag.

For example, if the URL is http://youtube.com/watch?v=jwMj3PJDxuo or http://www.youtube.com/v/jwMj3PJDxuo, take the movie code and add it to your post like this:

[ youtube ]jwMj3PJDxuo[ /youtube ]

The video will then be embedded in your post like so (I added tags to center the video in this post):

[center]
Frozen Grand Central
jwMj3PJDxuo



We may end up having to restrict the posting of YouTube videos if they cause problems or are abused. With that in mind, please follow these general guidelines when including YouTube videos in your posts and blogs:

Please do not post several of these videos in the same post or page. One or two is fine, but any more than that could cause the web page they're on to load noticeably slower for our members and visitors.

Please do not post any overly obscene, gross or offensive videos. I think YouTube does a fairly decent job at removing these types of videos from their web site, so this shouldn't be a big problem. We're not going to be real strict about it, but we will remove anything that we think is way "over the top" for OLS.


Other than that, enjoy!


Brent


BTW, you can find a list of all the vB Codes that are available for use on OLS here:

As a dial-up user, I still think this is pretty cool. Some of these take like 45 minutes to an hour to load on my computer but to me some of them are worth the wait. I'm use to the fact that with dial-up things just go slower.

The only option I have is satellite and right now I'm not willing to fork out the extra bucks.

Anyway I think this is great!
