    WooHoo! Video embeds have been enabled for YouTube, PhotoBucket and Vimeo.



    ***

    YouTube Videos


    Here's a quick rundown on how this works with YouTube videos:


    When using the post editors to create a post, you'll now notice this [​IMG] button that will automatically place "YT" (YouTube) tags in your post. All you'll need to do to embed your video is to place the last portion of the YouTube video URL in between the tags.

    Now, here's an example:

    If the YouTube URL you want to post is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W2VygftZSCs

    All you need to post between the [YT] tags is: W2VygftZSCs
    [YT]W2VygftZSCs[/YT]

    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 [​IMG] 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.

    [​IMG]
    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.

    [ URL="http://i69.photobucket.com/albums/i75/cwhouser/32%20ford/32ford23turbostartup_zpsc4e59802.mp4"][ IMG ]http://i69.photobucket.com/albums/i75/cwhouser/32%20ford/th_32ford23turbostartup_zpsc4e59802.jpg[/IMG][/URL]
    [BUCKET]http://i69.photobucket.com/albums/i75/cwhouser/32%20ford/32ford23turbostartup_zpsc4e59802.mp4[/BUCKET]

    Vimeo Videos


    Now for Vimeo:


    This is very similar to the YouTube embeds. The [​IMG] button will automatically place "VIMEO" tags in your post. All you'll need to do to embed your video is to place the last portion of the Vimeo video URL in between the tags.

    Now, here's an example:

    If the Vimeo URL you want to post is: http://www.vimeo.com/13832328

    All you need to post between the [VIMEO] tags is: 13832328
    [vimeo]13832328[/vimeo]



    ***

    Hulu Videos


    The [​IMG] button will automatically place "HULU" tags in your post. All you'll need to do to embed your video is to copy the "Embed" link from the Hulu site and then strip out all but the following highlighted info.

    Once you've got just the highlighted portion, paste it between the HULU tags and you are done.

    Now, here's an example:

    If the Hulu "Embed" code for the video you want to post is:

    <object width="512" height="288"><param name="movie" value="http://www.hulu.com/embed/ItCVr5vaIfznvfJknjZOaQ"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><embed src="http://www.hulu.com/embed/ItCVr5vaIfznvfJknjZOaQ" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="512" height="288" allowFullScreen="true"></embed></object>

    All you need to post between the [VIMEO] tags is: ItCVr5vaIfznvfJknjZOaQ
    [HULU]ItCVr5vaIfznvfJknjZOaQ[/HULU] ​



    It's that easy!
    :D



    NOTE:

    Be sure not to format the text in between the tags - No bold, italics, etc.
    :thumbs:

    Also, here is the quick reply editor as a quick reference to where these buttons can be found. They are in exactly the same location on the full editor as well!

    Read carefully.
    The PhotoBucket method is a bit more difficult.

    I designed the theme and some of the functionality but it's vBulletin's software, not mine.

    Awesome! Now can you allow me to edit all my how-to posts so I can directly put the vids in? (should be only like 5 or so :D)
