Video Embedding Enabled
« on: September 15, 2009, 09:19:47 AM »
Hey guys, just thought I'd let you know that video embedding from popular sites such as Youtube, Dailymotion, Facebook and Myspace has now been enabled. Simply paste your link to the video in your post and it will automatically do the rest for you. This is mainly for mod authors to showcase their work, although everyone else is free to use it too. However, if you mess around with it and post stupid video spam, it will be taken away from you and only given to mod members!

A quick note: If you wish to embed ModDB video, you need to the "embed" link, which can be found here:


Strip out all the crap until you're left with a link that looks something like this:
http://www.moddb.com/media/embed/186340

Then it's just a case of putting it in the flash tags, like so:

Code: [Select]
[flash=400,324]http://www.moddb.com/media/embed/186340[/flash]
With 400 representing the size horizontally and 324 being the size vertically, and voila! Special thanks to Toadie for figuring this one out.

I can see how that's relevant.
