HOW TO POST A MOVIE CLIP (YOUTUBE/VIMEO/...)

First, copy the 'embed' code for the video into your clipboard.
Then start a new post.
Use the 'dohtml' tags like this (use what's in the box, ignore 'CODE'):
[dohtml]
{paste your embed code here}
[/dohtml]
Preview your post before you submit it to make sure everything is working. If your movie clip starts playing by itself, add the autostart="false" parameters (in two places). Here's an example from youtube.com with the 'autostart' params added:
[dohtml]
<object width="425" height="344">
<param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/6OCdViIKAFY&hl=en&fs=1"></param>
<param name="autostart" value="false"></param>
<param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param>
<embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/6OCdViIKAFY&hl=en&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344" autostart="false"></embed>
</object>
[/dohtml]
And this is what it looks like when posted:


type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344" autostart="false">


Tip: Sometimes a video is a little grainy or fuzzy. You can multiply the 'width' and 'height' numbers by .75 and use the result (round to whole numbers) in their places. That'll make a smaller viewing window and usually results in a better quality experience :)

Thanks guys! I thought since the topic comes up every couple of months that it might be a good idea to have a little 'howto'.

OK....I have seen this but don't know how to do this.... How does one lurk the boards as an "anonymous member"? I see them, and now I feel like there is a big secret no one has shared....:angry: So, any clues???? :ph34r:

I guess I am going to stop posting.  Almost every damn thing I want to use in the screen doesn't do what I want.

 

I can't change the font, font size or font color.  Whenever I try to do that the cursor returns to position on the first line and my changes do NOT get made.

 

I can't copy anything from MY clipboard into the body of the text.

 

I can't embed code for clips.  The link screen does not explain itself.

 

All I can download is graphics that reside on my PC.

 

Many centuries ago Bj1 wrote a very instructive post about some of this.  This has not been done for the new format.  Does anyone care that some of us are disgusted with the current posting routine? 

 

I wanted to post the Budweiser Super Bowl Commercials compilation.  I received the link late this afternoon.  It is on YouTube somewhere.

 

Thanks for any help.

What ever happened to that archaic word "pr*bl*ms"?  I haven't seen it used in many a day.  That's why I typed it as if it is forbidden.  Is the dismissal of the word another sign of the wussification of America?  What does EOD say?
