Code: Select all

<iframe src="http://www.hd-trailers.net/embed/skyfall/3-trailer-no-1-720p/" width="1280px" height="740px"></iframe>

you can create a bbcode for that but it will probably ruin your board layout because you have the size so big.

why not just post the link instead of trying to use the iframe.

like this:
http://www.hd-trailers.net/embed/skyfal ... no-1-720p/

that way someone can post the link and if anyone wishes to view it they simly click on the link.

VEG wrote:We are glad to present you a new universal BBCode "phpBB [video]" which is compatible with both phpBB and phpBBex. To install you do not need to edit any files, it can be added through the admin panel.

Usage example

The user copies the URL of the page of the video and inserts it between the [video][/video]:

Code: Select all

[video]http://vimeo.com/40558553[/video]
or (with size specified):

Code: Select all

[video=640,360]http://vimeo.com/40558553[/video]
The message is displayed as follows (it's an image, live phpBB [video] demo on my forum):

Supported video services

Currently the following video services are supported:
  • youtube.com (youtu.be) - playlists are also supported
  • vimeo.com
  • rutube.ru — it is recommended to use the URL from the embed code
  • vk.com (vkontakte.ru) — the URL from the embed code is required
  • facebook.com
  • metacafe.com
  • clipfish.de
  • veevr.com
  • video.mail.ru
  • smotri.com
  • video.qip.ru
  • video.google.com
  • video.yandex.ru — the URL from the embed code is required
  • video.bigmir.net
  • tvigle.ru — the URL from the embed code is required
  • video.online.ua
  • video.sibnet.ru
  • yapfiles.ru
URLs do not need to be cleaned from the garbage arguments as our [video] will work it out. You can use both the URL of the video page and the URL of the embed code (unless other instructions are given).

In the nearest future the following video services will be supported:
  • vision.rambler.ru
  • intv.ru
  • lovi.tv
  • webm, mp4 and flv video files
It is convenient that our bbcode is updated and new services are supported automatically. If our BBCode doesn't support the needed video service, we will be happy to add it. In this topic, please provide the URL of the page of the video with the video service you're interested in and the embed code. It will help us to add support of the service. If the new video service is demanded we will soon add the support to our video-bbcode.

Installation of [video] (with fixed size)

1. Admin panel, tab "Posting", page "BBCodes", add BBCode (if you already have a [video] then delete it).
2. In the field "BBCode usage" enter:

Code: Select all

[video]{URL}[/video]
3. In the field "HTML replacement" enter (you can only change the width and height of the layer!):

Code: Select all

<div class='bbvideo' data-url='{URL}' style='width: 640px; height: 390px; margin: 2px 0; display: inline-block; background: #000; color: #fff; overflow: hidden; vertical-align: bottom;'><div style='height: 100%;'><script>if (typeof bbmedia == 'undefined') { bbmedia = true; var e = document.createElement('script'); e.async = true; e.src = 'http://phpbbex.com/api/bbmedia.js'; var s = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(e, s); }</script></div><div style='text-align: right; height: 14px; margin-top: -14px; padding-right: 2px; font: 10px/10px Verdana; color: #555;'><a style='color: #105289; text-decoration: none;' href='http://phpbbex.com/' target='_blank'>phpBB</a> &#91;video&#93;</div></div>
4. In the field "Help line" enter:

Code: Select all

Insert video: [video]http://youtube.com/url[/video]
5. Set the checkbox "Display on posting" and save the form. Done!

Installation of [video=width,height] (in addition to the previous)

1. Admin panel, tab "Posting", page "BBCodes", add BBCode (if you already have a [video=] then delete it).
2. In the field "BBCode usage" enter:

Code: Select all

[video={NUMBER1},{NUMBER2}]{URL}[/video]
3. In the field "HTML replacement" enter (no change!):

Code: Select all

<div class='bbvideo' data-url='{URL}' style='width: {NUMBER1}px; height: {NUMBER2}px; margin: 2px 0; display: inline-block; background: #000; color: #fff; overflow: hidden; vertical-align: bottom;'><div style='height: 100%;'><script>if (typeof bbmedia == 'undefined') { bbmedia = true; var e = document.createElement('script'); e.async = true; e.src = 'http://phpbbex.com/api/bbmedia.js'; var s = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(e, s); }</script></div><div style='text-align: right; height: 14px; margin-top: -14px; padding-right: 2px; font: 10px/10px Verdana; color: #555;'><a style='color: #105289; text-decoration: none;' href='http://phpbbex.com/' target='_blank'>phpBB</a> &#91;video&#93;</div></div>

Any ideas how to make it into a simple bbcode?

Hi all,

I just added the youtube tags (for full url), but seem to have some problems.

The url often has a different code in it depending how you access it. For instance I accessed a vid from a US website and then I accessed same vid from the side panel (which shows multiple vids) on the youtube site. Both these gave me different youtube url codes, and only one (from the external website) of the two worked.

Any advice welcome :)

I've been trying fruitlessly to get this to work, so I think it's time I throw in the towel and ask for help. I'm trying to make an iframe bbcode to embed this:

Code: Select all

<div style="background:#000;width:350px; height:260px;font:0px sans-serif;text-align:left;"><object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" id="cdtw" width="350" height="240" style="outline:none"><param name="movie" value="http://cdn.countingdownto.com/c/w.swf" /><param name="flashvars" value="eid=100879" /><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always" /><param name="bgcolor" value="#000000" /><embed name="cdtw" src="http://cdn.countingdownto.com/c/w.swf" flashvars="eid=100879" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="350" height="240" allowscriptaccess="always" bgcolor="#000000" style="outline:none"></embed></object><br/> <a href="http://countingdownto.com" style="font:bold 8px Arial;padding-left:19px;color:#444;">HTTP://COUNTINGDOWNTO.COM</a></div>
Any help would be most appreciated.

if this is not going to change then here is what to do:

in the first box put exctly this:
[count][/count]

in the html replacement box put this:

Code: Select all

<div style="background:#000;width:350px; height:260px;font:0px sans-serif;text-align:left;"><object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" id="cdtw" width="350" height="240" style="outline:none"><param name="movie" value="http://cdn.countingdownto.com/c/w.swf" /><param name="flashvars" value="eid=100879" /><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always" /><param name="bgcolor" value="#000000" /><embed name="cdtw" src="http://cdn.countingdownto.com/c/w.swf" flashvars="eid=100879" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="350" height="240" allowscriptaccess="always" bgcolor="#000000" style="outline:none"></embed></object><br/> <a href="http://countingdownto.com" style="font:bold 8px Arial;padding-left:19px;color:#444;">HTTP://COUNTINGDOWNTO.COM</a></div>
don't change anything.

now I assume that you do not want just anyone to be using this so you don't need to put anything in the help line and you really don't need to click the box to show it in the posting page.
If only you are going to be able to use it, then all you have to do is type in the bbcode like this:
[count][/count] and that is it.

Hi
My board doesn't provide or allow a 'links' or 'url' BBCode.
Any way you can provide me with one (the code and html replacement) that I can add to my board ?
Thanks
