YouTube BBCode Best Method!


Hello!

This bbcode snippet here will allow your users to paste the WHOLE YOUTUBE LINK. I use this on my phpbb3 forums over at www.aintnobullshit.com and it works great!


BBcode usage:
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v={TEXT}[/youtube]

HTML Replacement:
<object width="425" height="350"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/{TEXT}"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/{TEXT}" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="350"></embed></object>


This is a much easier method than having the users copy and paste a small ID #.......and this method even works if you add the "&feature=related" thing on the end, too.


Happy phpbbing!

Hi! Thanks for posting it. I agree with you, it would be a lot easier to copy and paste the whole YouTube Link. :)

You're very welcome. It was hard for me to find, and was only posted on ONE forum at the time that I found it. So last night I searched google and updated all of the forums that I could find that referenced the ID# code only. Look at it this way - one day YOU might use somebody else's forum.....I would want them to have access to the same awesome efficient bbcode for youtube that I'm using :D
