quick inquiry on embedding
« on: December 26, 2018, 06:47:00 am »
years ago before the forum overhaul there was a point where you could actually embed video links onto your post and it would post the video.

i remember it stopped working sometime in 2014 or 2015, or at the very least just fell out of style.

still doesn't seem to work here.

was it just deactivated or is the current site version not compatible for whatever reason?

or
am i just not typing in the right lil codey bit?

I experienced the same issue the other day. I believe embedding was just removed by Raz, possibly to thwart off any possibility of misusing the feature. I tried several times using different methods mentioned in older posts and none of them worked.

Hopefully it will be added back eventually if a BBCode permits it. If anything, maybe making a post about it in the Inputbox would help (which I might get around to eventually.)

if it was removed i'll definitely put up a thread there, since moderating that kind of issue is as simple as pi[e].


could've sworn BBCode allowed it. damn i wish i had paid better attention to the little prompts the old forum gave you so i could check.

I agree, it seems odd that it was discontinued so randomly. I do believe it was just turned off via the forum's administrative tools because BBCode permit automatic embedding on sites normally. Not entirely relevant, but you might find this link interesting regarding BBCode on SimpleMachines, which is what the FH forum is held on: https://wiki.simplemachines.org/smf/Alphabetical_list_of_all_bulletin_board_codes. Also, it doesn't currently work on the FH forum, but there is a [youtube] script that is specifically made to embed Youtube videos directly to a site. Of course, it could be added to the forum if an administrator permits it. https://www.bbcode.org/examples/?id=11

so now i guess we just wait until a staff member comes forward with why it was removed or if it'll ever be possible to come back?

thank you for the link, by the by.

Hey, a noob in coding here, but, just thought it was worth mentioning.
FeralHeart has a Stream thingy in a post here https://feral-heart.com/smf/index.php?topic=65011.0
And it does play videos and music. But through the stream (not sure which one though)
So technically it allows videos to be automatically played somehow. So if that has anything even to do with this, you could just ask for the Code and see how they’ve added this to their post

if i could quote the post i could see it myself

but that's clearly using something else - possibly the stream code format

not exactly good for video embedding.
