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.

What's wrong with just typing the youtube tag?

I don't see anything wrong, but we have a button for img, and as long as we may be getting all bloggy, I don't see how it would hurt... if there's no objections I'll put it in motion.

There's nothing wrong with it, I just don't feel like doing it sometimes. One less hand I'll have to put on the keyboard.

Good spirit, but I don't think you know how. (Rather, you don't have access to it)

I figured that out within 5 minutes after posting that. And it is lack of access. And I didn't make another post so as not to depress the masses regarding your hoarding of power. Way to go.

It's obvious I didn't do it, but you're welcome anyway.


Hey, I did the whole initial coding bit on my own, and it was my idea. Probably my most solid contribution so far.

Probably because most of us are in college.
