Affirmative! It's phpbb engine.

I keep fingers crossed :bye:
Phpbb guys should help with details.

BTW.
On a skiforum it is sorted out even simpler!

The engine automatically recognises a video link and presents it as a screen in the published post. Don't think it might be sorted out more simpler!

but it looks exactly like mine, but it uses the link in a different format.

What happens if you add the link with www? Will it work?

The other one is a different forum software.

a way around it would be using several youtube buttons..which will be for each format...

youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x6ji01ui9Lw
youtube 2: http://youtube.com/watch?v=x6ji01ui9Lw
youtube 3: https://youtube.com/watch?v=x6ji01ui9Lw

etc...

But, would it help or confuse?

It looks the same but it works different for me. Maybe you got it working differently.
However I checked in Chrome and IE and in both cases it looks like that:
In a case of foilforum:
- highlight an entire link
- click VIDEO icon. Done in 3 seconds :D

In a case of your forum:
- highlight an entire link,
- click YT icon for youtube files,
- click VIMEO icon for vimeo files, etc for other formats,
- edit the link manually - for the vimeo links you need to add some letters - always forget which ones :oops: if I am not wrong you need to add into the original address "www" and delete "s" in "htpps"
(the original vimeo link looks like this: https://vimeo.com/xxxxxxxxxxxx
and you need to change it into: http://www.vimeo.com/xxxxxxxxxxxx
- click PREVIEW to check if I was right editing - usually I am wrong so I need to repeat above step till success,
- click SUBMIT to post it in the correct format. Done in 3... minutes :cry:
Imagine that a new user needs to post vimeo link and he has no clue about that trap.
In most cases they gave up and leave just a link in a post.
What happens if you add the link with www? Will it work?
Funny is that you do not need to think about it. Just add any popular video format link and click VIDEO. Done!
You do not need to check if it is http or https or www or 2www or whatever.

na, sounds like a drama!

I click youtube, insert link, take out "s" and click submit. 5 seconds :thumb:

But, I found now the codes for it, and we will install it.

I think we have to leave the youtube and vimeo buttons so older videos will work, but you then only click on video and insert what you want.

Thanks!
Toby

thx to "Bracuru" and "feel" the VIDEO button is now available.

Click on "VIDEO" and Insert the video link, no matter which format from Vimeo or Youtube, also youtu.be works.
3 seconds ;-)

Thanks guys! :thumb:

example how it looks like when you insert a video:

Code: Select all
