I posted this in another thread but it will probably get lost there.


Grab the embed link from youtube, or any other site like youtube.
It will look like this:
Code:
<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/65I0HNvTDH4&hl=en&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/65I0HNvTDH4&hl=en&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>


The only parts we need are the actual url and the size:
Code:
<object width="425" height="344">
<embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/65I0HNvTDH4&hl=en&fs=1" 


Above your post field where the buttons are for bold and underline you will find a button for flash. That is what we need:
Code:
[flash=][/flash]


In there we need to put the size after the = (width,height) and the url in between the tags, like so:
Code:
[flash=425,344]http://www.youtube.com/v/65I0HNvTDH4&hl=en&fs=1[/flash]



And that will give you this:

Chuck, have you tried embedding a video from the NHL Network Online?

I'm trying to embed this one using the flash tag, but it's not working...

I noticed that in the Ohlund youtube video that I just posted, that you also need the "&hl=en&fs=1" string added to the end of the youtube URL to make it work...

It never works for me. I always get the message "You cannot use certain BBCodes: [flash]."

Why can't I? What makes everyone else so damn special?

I added a new button to try to make this easier. Currently only works with Youtube. Give it a shot and tell me if you have any problems.

EDIT: Nevermind, I figured it out.

Ok it took me about 15 minutes of tinkering before I could figure this out and then only because I edited Jeff's post and saw what he did.

For example....if you go to Youtube over to the right is this whole embed thing.....

like this:

<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/cScJZqKpMq4&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/cScJZqKpMq4&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>

Really that mean nothing to me however what you want is here.....and bolded above
cScJZqKpMq4

You can then take that and go hit the Youtube button.....put that crap cScJZqKpMq4 in the middle of the youtube and submit....



I hope this helps out some other dummy because I could never figure it out.....

Harmy, just put the final string of letters and numbers (after the v= from the address) in a [youtube][/youtube] tag. That's it!

There is no v= its after v/

That's what worked for me. That's why I put the whole thing I did there.

Just take the string of characters from the URL so you don't have to sift through the embed code.

Like this:

Here is the URL for a video:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uQFgq6WVUyo

Bolded is the code you need:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uQFgq6WVUyo

Use the Youtube button or just type the tags in yourself like so:
Code:
[youtube]uQFgq6WVUyo[/youtube]


And it becomes:

So does this work with videos hosted on Photobucket too?

this is the code I get from my video:

<embed width="600" height="361" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowFullscreen="true" allowNetworking="all" wmode="transparent" src="http://static.photobucket.com/player.swf" flashvars="file=http%3A%2F%2Fvidmg.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fv31%2Fchris18%2FE-Skates.mp4">

What would I have to pull out of it?
