Title: Video Embedding
Post by: Alex on July 09, 2014, 11:56:47 AM
You can now embed videos in your forum posts!

Take a look at the source of this post to see what the bbcode looks like; there's a "flash" button to the left of the "insert image" button.

Edit (7/28/19): with the updated plugin, all you need to do is paste the video URL into the post, no need for any markup.

Videos from YouTube, Vimeo, and Google Video should work.

The same rules that apply to images apply to videos as well; so don't go too crazy :)

Cool, I can see mod posts with videos instead of many pictures now.

Also, that trailer's intro music makes me DROOL!

Thought this would be a fitting video to try it with. Might as well be my first post too. Long time starsector player and forum lurker, hiding in the shadows and behind nebulas, always out of sensor reach...
