PhotoBucket Videos

Here's the method for PhotoBucket videos on the old site:


When using the post editors to create a post, you'll now notice this
pbucket.gif
button that will automatically place "BUCKET" (PhotoBucket) tags in your post. What you need to do this time is a bit more tricky. You'll want to copy the entire "Direct Link" from your PhotoBucket page and enter it between the [BUCKET] tags but you'll need to remove the "?action=view&current=" from the URL before hitting enter or this WILL NOT WORK.
Now, here's an example:

If the PhotoBucket URL you want to post is: http://s186.photobucket.com/albums/x245/tobeuss/?action=view&current=MagnaflowCD.mp4

What you'll need to post between the [BUCKET] tags is: http://s186.photobucket.com/albums/x245/tobeuss/MagnaflowCD.mp4
[BUCKET]http://s186.photobucket.com/albums/x245/tobeuss/MagnaflowCD.mp4 [/BUCKET]


Here's the method for PhotoBucket videos on the new/beta site:


You will use the same button and tags as before but now you must use them always from within the full reply or advanced reply windows. The quick reply feature will break the links.

On the video's PB page, click on "Image" to the right of the video to copy the URL.

Then, between the [BUCKET] tags, place the URL you just copied. Delete everything I've highlighted in Red. Then, deselect the "Automatically parse links in text" option before hitting submit.

:cheers:

Photobucket sure has made it more of a pain in the ass. I'll keep an eye out for a better way.

The keyless system will be cool. The gauge thing, I'd beg you to reconsider. That ride deserves better.

Are you planning to mount the Nexus 7 in the dash or leave it handheld? I think it would look really cool molded into the dash, yet made somewhat removable. I've seen a few custom trucks in the scene that use the iPad molded in. Not sure how they function, but it's wild seeing no instruments when you look in the truck.

What would you say would be better? I'm going for uniqueness on this truck so I think this would be neat.

Yes it would be in a removable and molded in.

I'm not sure, but a tablet in the dash just seems like something more for a gussied-up show truck or an import or something. I'm not saying it will look bad, just saying, IMO, it will look out of place, especially given the "used" feel of the truck. I'll look around for ideas to share so I won't be that guy that just pooh-poohs the idea with no suggestions. :D Maybe something from an old airplane or something.

Additionally, with a tablet, you have to worry about theft or toting the tablet with you everywhere when you park. Within a year or so, it'll also be just an old tablet so the mix of really old with cutting edge will have been watered down. A couple years from now you may end up doing a bunch of work again to mold in something different.

Your truck, your call, I just think a cool old set of gauges from an obscure old ride would fit better. None of this will detract from just how cool the truck is though. I love it.

I see your point, but my thinking of it is that this truck does have an old "feel" but that is just in the body, everything else is new technology. Turbocharged EFI engine, with air bags and 20" wheels. Doing all this stuff is still few months away so we will see if I think the coolness will wear off by then.
