Add video to your posts!
Add video to your posts!

When posting new mesages, you are now able to include Video clips from both YouTube and Google.

Simply place the appropriate video ID codes in between the YT and/or GV tags and the video will automatically be embedded into your posting, along with your message (see examples below)!

Streaming doesn't occur until you click on the "play" button, so for those on dial-up, you don't need to worry about them clogging up your connection!

We hope you find this a useful addition to the Fan Forum.

We see some of you are starting to use this feature :cool:

BUT - please remember - you don't put in the full URL of the video - but just the alphanumeric codes - in between the YT and/or GV tags.

So once you click on either the YouTube or Google Video icon when posting your message, stick this alphanumeric code in between - and NOT the full or address.

See examples above!

Hope that is clearer :) Enjoy it :cool:

YouTube have made some major changes recently, one of which prevents you from simply copying & pasting a video link to the Fan Forum and have it display natively.

So please use the method described above using the built-in YT video ID option or if you prefer, use can use YouTube's iFrame Embed code for any video, such as... (remembering to put the '<' character in front of the first and last iFrame statement in the embed code):


iframe width="720" height="480" src="" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen>/iframe>
