Is there any way to do that on here or do I just have to keep putting links to click on?

You'll have to put the links on I'm afraid, the forum doesn't support embedded videos.

I don't believe the forum software is capable, but I'll check...

I've had a scoob around and it looks like the only way to allow embedded videos would be to enable full HTML in posts (so you could do the whole copy/paste from sites that give you the "put this on your website" code) - BUT that is a huge security risk as it opens the forum up to having all sorts of nasties embedded in posts. Not something we really want to be doing, sorry!

Hi,

I've found a module that might make it possible. I can't promise, though. It may turn out to be incompatible with our version of phpBB. Or it may just take more time than I can afford to install.

I'll play with it this evening, but don't be too upset if it won't work.

James

Hey, it works!

You can add videos from the folllowing sites: youtube, googlevideo, dailymotion, metacafe. myspace, starsclips, yahoo, photobucket, filefront, stage6, veoh, vidilife, gametrailers, vidiac, gamespot, megavideo, vimeo, gamevideos, tu.tv and godtube to forum posts.

The forum code is:

Code:
[video]url[/video]


The URL should be the page containing the video file. It works for YouTube. It may take some trial and error to make work for others.
