PostSubject: YouTube tags   Sun Jun 15, 2008 5:02 pm

I'm still observing problems with the YouTube tags. I've had difficulty finding information regarding the problem, but I read elsewhere that there seems to be problems with YouTube URLs that include hyphens (-) and underscores (_). Unfortunately, it seems that a lot of the videos I have tried posting have one or the other in them.

There are a couple alternatives besides simply not posting them.

1) We can use the Flash tag. Instead of dropping the YouTube video URL between the YouTube tags, they work if they are placed between Flash tags. The neat thing I have found with the Flash tags is that in the tag you can include parenthesis with width and height dimensions, allowing us to set how big or small the video window is.
for example:
[flash(640,480)] followed by the URL and then a closing Flash tag


2) I could enable HTML and people could post the Embed scripts that YouTube provides. However, thus far I have been unwilling to enable HTML because it would allow posters to do things that I perhaps would not like them doing. Limiting posters to use of BBCode at least keeps posts within relative reason, but a lot can be done with HTML and I may not want some of it in posts. For now I'll leave HTML turned off in posts.

I think you might be right, O Icy One. I just tried a video of the Jade Falcon opening from Mechwarrior 2, and it didn't work because it had a dash or somethign in it. Your favorite clan intro works just fine because it doesn't have dashes or underlines.
