For those of us who don't know which files to edit, could you tell us which files those are? It sounds a little elitist to say "hope you know which files to use!"

There are no files that you need to edit that I know of. The only thing you need to edit is the bbcode thats in your ACP >> Posting >> BBCodes

From what I understand that's just not possible with the way bbcodes are setup. It would require a mod.

A regular user does not know anything about an "embed code". A regular user will post the full youtube URL; that's the BBCode we need.

it is possible to have the whole link, but you need to use quotation marks in the bbcode bit

I.E [youtube]"{TEXT}"[/youtube] (in ACP, then to use the bbcode, they would have to have [youtube]"MY YOUTUBE URL"[/youtube]

I'll be waiting for a solution where you simply put in the youtube url and viola...nothing more, nothing less. Simple as that.

Who doesn't know about the embed code these days? Its not like some hidden gem of youtube, its right there on every youtube video page. I've found that most people who try to post youtube videos use the embed code rather than the url. I don't think you're giving your members enough credit, and if they do post the url it only takes a quick post to show the correct way. We've all got to learn it somehow.

Believe me, not to many people know about embedded code. That's why it is best to stick with url's for the bbcode.

Is there a way you can get the embedded code for the google videos?
