EDIT: The YouTube object embed method does not buffer the video regardless, this was updated due to complaints :)

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.

We can embed images, and since the videos don't immediately buffer it makes no sense to not implement this suggestion. If it really is as simple as is being described here than the dissenting opinions are saying no because they don't know how to say yes.

I'm not sure why this is a debate. What are the cons?

What?

If you're talking about viruses. It's quite difficult to get them onto YouTube.

Perhaps a little explanation of how to use this new feature would be in order. I see the YouTube button on the forum post editor, but what exactly do you put inside the tags?
