I have tried embedding youtube videos in the forums here with no such luck. I think I'm doing it right (just copy and paste the embed code on youtube's site to here) but it doesn't work. Is this a forum software limitation? How much of a pain would it be to fix to add this feature? I think members youtube videos playing in an actual post would be great! No need to open up additional tabs or windows to go check out video clips. Just my .02

Nothing? 40 Views and nada? Don't mods peruse this section? Seriously, this is a much needed update to our forum. I know there are tons of ad sponsored forums that have had it for a long time, and I know we don't have those pesky sponsors but really, what does it take for this to happen? I'm curious.

He may have that feature disabled. I've never been able to do it either.

You can always post the link

AFAIK, it's a forum limitation. I've seen it work flawlessly on other forums. it would be nice to have that ability, but posting a link to videos works just fine for me

Nice vid dieseldorf. However, it would be much nicer if I could watch it INSIDE your post instead of in a different browser window/tab...

That's what I'm getting at. Now, can someone "just enable" this? By someone, I probably am talking about Fred? Mods... Still waiting on feedback from you guys. I'm 100% confident that this is a good change. As a matter of fact, it's the only good change I have ever thought of for this site.

I'm with Phil on this, I think "inline" videos would be a nice touch.

personal perspective here....I had a bb once that allowed that, and it caused more overhead on the local server, etc. If you just post a link, then the overhead is on your client box's head...that said, not sure why it is disabled. Looks cleaner when live videos are not splashed all over I think.

IIRC, with embedded video the video still plays from youtube's server and in the client browser, it's just referenced in the page.

Fred would have to decide if he wants this feature enabled.

I think you may be right, come to think, I was dealing with non-streaming, or progressive download and had to serve it from my website...was an issue back when traffic was charged by gig, probably no longer

I actually just added this feature to my forums. There is no plugins really. It's what is called BBCode. It's real easy to do.

Everytime you post a picture with PhotoBucket, a TDI gets below 30MPG.
