[Done] Embedded Videos

Postby nemrehs1 on Thu Oct 21, 2010 7:22 pm

Concise description:
  • Videos embedded in posts

Specifics/Details:
  • Much like images can be embedded in posts rather then following a link, the videos should be the same way.

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
  • People don't have to go out of their way to watch posted videos.
  • Prevents a CC member from clicking on a video to a shady website, ensuring computer safety.
  • Ease of access among everyone.
  • Easier to follow videos in series, rather than having to click on multiple links at a time.
  • How-To Videos can be easily posted among the Tech Team and various other contributing CC members.
  • Prevents Rick-rolling.

I can almost guarantee this won't go through, soon anyway. I talked with people about potential new BBCode tags - it was said that it would probably slow down pages and isn't worth the work that would be put in, unlike some other tags ;)

I think this is a great idea! I don't know the technical details it would take to implement, but I like it! :D

Is there a way to ensure the videos DO NOT, under any circumstances, start playing automatically?

Yes, there is a way to do everything. That's the wonder of the internet. The problem is, I don't know if you can stop it buffering, which is what actually slows the loading of the rest of the page down. Buffering being loading the video into a temp folder in local memory.

The BBCode I created using the object embed from YouTube does not buffer the video until you click the play button.
EDIT: The YouTube object embed method does not buffer the video regardless, this was updated due to complaints :)

I seen this tag, but I wasn't a fan in the context of our site. I'd rather have us work with more blatantly useful things.

I like how I see this argument being used in a lot of places. "Well, i'd rather have something cooler/more useful/better/etc be done first". Well, almost no little update would be done as people would argue for all the biggest updates be done only.

It takes about 45 seconds to add a BBCode into the ACP, no file edits, just a form to submit.

I was doing some reading, and a little thinking. If you were using the bbcode you would need to host the videos somewhere. Is it the intention of the suggestion to store the videos on the page, or on the server, or just plain on some other hosting side and just embedding the videos there instead of linking to them?
Just a couple questions i thought of to better clarify before we proceed.

Its a youtube embed code, meaning it uses the video ID of a video on youtube and it simply puts the video into the page.

I was thinking to embed the video like a picture, the video is on another hosting site, and we just embed the videos there. It shouldn't be more complicated then embedding an image from another site

I was thinking more generally than youtube. It could theoretically be done for any hosting site, could it not?

Yes, but not all using one BBCode. Youtube must have its own because of the API/Objects that it uses. I'm not sure about other video hosting sites, but most likely a lot of code would have to be written to make them work.

What about the BBCode dynamically generating the embed by querying the server at the time it's embedded, to determine the way the video is stored so it can call it properly.
As an example take the youtube stuff. You input [video] tags and the function queries youtube to determine how it is stored in order to correctly embed the video. I'm not sure if this is actually feasible to do tho.

Not feasible. That would require a hardwired modification of the code. All I'm doing is making a BBCode replacement through the ACP (er, well Andy would be doing it).

Embedding YouTube into the forums

Postby Commander9 on Sat Jul 02, 2011 5:38 pm

Concise description: Embedding YouTube into to the forums, so people would be able to embed YouTube videos directly into the forums rather than just posting the links.

Specifics/Details:
  • A button at the current bar that would say YouTube and that would say this: [YOUTUBE]M4JhV9LjuoY&feature=related[/YOUTUBE]. You would just include the latter part of any YouTube video and it would be embedded to the forums.
  • The video will be directly embedded to the post and people will be able to view just by pressing play.

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
  • Easy to implement and makes the life much easier and much more fun.
But... It was so artistically done.
