Embedding YouTube, Vimeo, and Veoh videos
« on: October 18, 2008, 09:47:04 PM »
I've made a custom BBCode tag so that we can embed YouTube videos into our posts. So let's say you want to embed this video:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SnKppff5yQ8

You use the "yt" tag, either by typing or clicking the YouTube icon in the tools, and including the string after "v=" like so:

Code: [Select]
[yt]SnKppff5yQ8[/yt]
And the result is:

I made one for Veoh.com videos, too. For this one, you use the long string of characters starting with "v":

Code: [Select]
[veoh]v16275337PR8BK4pb[/veoh]
gets you:

I've been playing around with embedding YouTube videos in widescreen. If a video is made widescreen, and YouTube shows it letterboxed (as opposed to the black bars being part of the video), then it can play it widescreen. Like so:

4x3:


Wide:


Use the tag:

Code: [Select]
[yt-wide]VideoID[/yt-wide]

Testing out embedding YouTube videos in Hi-Def:


Edit: K'plaH! It works...although I have the full screen option set, but it's not showing the button. Typical YouTube glitch, I guess. If you want to do this, just use:

Code: [Select]

I think that's some type of alien bird language, not alien mammal.

Minor change: Since YouTube has standardized widescreen, I've now made widescreen the default for the "yt" tag:


Code: [Select]
[yt]d0nERTFo-Sk[/yt]
The "yt-wide" tag still works for the sake of older posts, but it's no longer necessary to use.

There is now a "yt-43" tag for 4:3 videos:


Code: [Select]
[yt-43]RWsx1X8PV_A[/yt-43]
The "yt-hd" tag still works as before:


Code: [Select]
[yt-hd]d0nERTFo-Sk[/yt-hd]

Code: [Select]
[yt]SnKppff5yQ8[/yt]

So THAT'S what the
Code: [Select]
code BBCode tag is for.
I've known that for a while now (courtesy of this thread). I really oughta use it more.

I added Vimeo:

To embed just take the number after the "/" and:

Code: [Select]
[vimeo]82920243[/vimeo]
And the result is:

By the way, we've been doing this kind of thing for awhile, but I thought I'd put it here in the instruction thread: you can start a YouTube video at any point by adding "&start=<number of seconds>" to the tag, like so:

Code: [Select]
[yt]UPS6eESbKGs&start=775[/yt]
(Note: 775 seconds is 12 minutes 55 seconds, so the video will start at 12:55.)

The result:
