Video Video uploads are now enabled

I enabled videos to be embedded in to posts by the forum's members.

There are a couple different ways to embed a video.

You will now see a 'You Tube' button in the Message text window when you make a post.

To embed a video from You Tube, the user can press the 'You Tube' button and the following code will appear:

{YOUTUBE}{/YOUTUBE} <-- NOTE: the brackets have been changed so you are able to see the code.

Then simply copy and paste the You Tube video's ID number in between the tags such as:


Which displays the following embedded video:
NOTE: I added SPACES so you can see the URL.

Take out the spaces and you will now see the embedded video:

Lastly, I have also enabled several video file formats to be uploaded directly to the server. These can now be uploaded the same way as pictures are uploaded to posts. The following video file extensions are now permitted: mpg, mov, divx, rm, swf and mov.

Keep in mind that when these files are uploaded they are not embedded into the post. The file name will show up on the screen and when someone clicks on the video file it will open their video player on their computer to play the video.

If you are having problems viewing the videos, you should upgrade your Flash Media Player here: http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

Let's have fun and keep it clean
