Well, an historic day here at Origin as another in our serious series of changes as we reinvent ourselves and our purpose comes to fruition. Now, we can watch videos from Youtube right here on the forums with a new embedding BBcode.

Example: [ youtube] url here[ /youtube]

Be wary! At least for now due to coding incompatibilities with youtube's swf "watch" urls, you will need to use a non-direct youtube url when coding.

When faced with a url such as the following: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b8M6BZDrdIo&feature=related

You must delete "watch?" and replace "=" with "/" to become: http://www.youtube.com/v/b8M6BZDrdIo&feature=related

Anyone familiar with gaining (illegal, and not recommended) access to foreign material on Youtube will recognize the procedure.

DO NOT pay any attention to the above now—Youtube tag now accepts either link.

Alright, awesome.

May I propose a limit to 1 video per topic, so as not to affect those of us with slow connections? Maybe 2 or 3.

The videos do not begin to load until clicked on so it should not slow down the loading of the rest of the page more than an image would. Still, I will propose a limit soon, we don't want spam.

Believe it or not, I actually did this all on my lonesome.

Also, to Sing: I checked, it should not slow your connection at all unless you click, so we're not going to impose a limit unless there are any problems.

Ok, fair enough. For the sake of preventing spam, we should probably keep a reasonable, informal limit.

I don't see how that works for the common person around here... how do they access it? Also, all that copy/paste work is a pain, and doesn't really get rid of having to do that bit manually. Can we do a script where the entry in the BBcode itself is auto changed?

(11:46:09 PM) Me: how do people get to your link?
(11:46:16 PM) orijing: they click it
(11:46:18 PM) Me: and isn't the manual retyping just less of a pain?
(11:46:21 PM) Me: but
(11:46:24 PM) Me: they have to got THERE to find it
(11:46:29 PM) orijing: o.o
(11:46:31 PM) Me: that sucks!@
(11:46:32 PM) orijing: dude it's the same thing
(11:46:36 PM) Me: yeah
(11:46:39 PM) Me: but mine is more practical
(11:46:40 PM) orijing: except you don't have to change anything
(11:46:41 PM) orijing: o-o
(11:46:42 PM) Me: analog
(11:46:45 PM) orijing: o_o
(11:46:45 PM) orijing: stfu


Clearly, it's just easier to do it manually until we come up with an all encompassing solution.

You guys don't seem to understand. Placing the Youtube link in between [youtube] tags will be sufficient.

I was just suggesting the button for the sake of efficiency, sometimes I don't feel like typing those things out.

Do you mean you want a button like the buttons for typefaces, links, and imgs on the main reply page?
