New BBcode installed: Youtube video embedding!
Here's something I've wanted on the forums for a while... the ability to embed Youtube videos into posts, rather than always having to link to the external ones and sending people back 'n forth between the two web sites.
You'll now notice a little icon when you go to post a new message for easy embedding of your videos.
There's one thing I should note though in regards to using proper syntax with the Youtube BBcode...
This is the correct way to use the code to embed a Youtube video.
Basically, all you have to do is remove the "http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=" portion of the URL so all that remains is the unique video ID.
As you can see, it works perfecto
If you have any questions about this new BBcode or any of the other ones, I suggest reading over this page. You'll find plenty of examples of how to use each one towards the bottom of that page. Weeeeeeeee!
