right now i have the flash/ video mod installed.. BUT. when im previewing my post in the left corner it shows the optinos like bbcode, ime, flash, url, and smilies.. well everything is on EXCEPT flash. i looked all over the ACP , and all over these boards, and google, and i cant find how to enable flash... thanks in advance...
see its enabled.. but it still doesnt give me ( a admin) the ability to post anything flash related...
the mod isnt really for flash, but for multiple video sites.. like youtube, vimea, mypsace.. etc etc it allows u just to do a [video] url [/video] code... problem is my board says i have flash OFF.. how do i turn it on

I am also having this issue, for the first time, the Admin Founder can use flash in posts, but I am unable to, in my registered users permissions this is all that is listed for 'All features':
Can attach files Can disable word censors Can download files Can save drafts Can use signature
The only setting for flash listed is for private messages. Anybody know what is causing this issue or where is the correct place to look at to resolve this issue?
I also checked another forum that flash is working on, and it shows the same selection as above, but the flash on that forum works fine. Where exactly is the flash in posts setting suppose to be located at?
Well, I was looking at the image posted above and realized that my sites 'Board features' is missing that setting:
Allow subscribing to topics: Yes No Allow subscribing to forums: Yes No Allow username changes: Yes No Allow attachments: Yes No Allow attachments in private messages: Yes No Allow BBCode: Yes No Allow smilies: Yes No Allow signatures: Yes No Allow disabling of word censoring: Users can choose to disable the automatic word censoring of posts and private messages.
OK, this is even more confusing on the site that flash is working, does not have that setting listed either.
OK, I think I tracked it down, you have to actually go into each form and change flash, that is time consuming though. Why was it done like this? Why no global application and why so hidden, sort of lame.
If you set it in the Forum Role you are using, you only have to do it once. If you are using the "Standard Access" Forum Role, you would go into that Forum Role and set "Can post flash" to Yes. You would then use that Forum Role for your Registered User usergroup for each forum.
I'm currently running a board and HAVE set all permissions to allow flash... however when i try posting up a flash video from youtube for example i get nothing but the url displayed with the flash tags around it... if i use the url option it just posts a link to the youtube site where the video is located...
here's an example since this forum does exactly the same as mine... btw i will post the various ways i tried...
(on this one below i put 500,500 beside the = on the flash tag for width and height)
any who as you can see that is exactly what my board does and YES i checked the permissions about 5 or more times and it doesnt change it says its allowed... but it sure doesn't seem like it is... any suggestions?
I'm running into the same situation. This is what I have and all I can see on my test server is the flash content with the controls but nothing plays when I click play.
Background: I'm using adobe captivate to create flash videos, the videos are published as a flash content .swf. If I simply click the link to the flash content, it allows me to download the flash content and view it but I would like to be able to play them from within the threads themselves. Any ideas? Thanks for your help.
