Embedding videos to the forum
« on: April 15, 2012, 09:35:14 AM »
Could we add the option to embed videos to our posts instead of needing to click a link to an outside website?

I'm going to need this.

Twould be nice, though I'm guessing the resources available for adding stuff are limited. Maybe next update *looks on hopefully*

If anyone is interested here's a link to the SMF you tube embed BB code and instructions on how to add it through the ACP; it can only be added by someone with administration privileges.

Also worthy of consideration, considering 1.1.10 is still being used here (?!), are the likes of http://www.securityfocus.com/archive/1/508167 I have seen huge and valuable forums completely removed by hackers (probably relative amateurs to boot); one I occasionally visited was destroyed just a couple of months ago.
