Hello all,

We'd like to introduce a new way of video embedding for the forums. You probably already got used to the [Youtube] BB code, but since that was quite buggy and limited to a couple of links I looked around the web and found a new, more functional code for us to use. You can see this code on the BBcode bar when posting a new message, it's on a tab called [video] right next to .

The video BB code allows you to post youtube links, facebook videos, twitch videos and much more. There is a list down here with all available websites. Please note there are still a lot of sites that don't work, but this is at least a huge expansion compared to the old youtube code. A few examples:

Code:

Currently the following video services are supported:

youtube.com (youtu.be) - playlists are also supported
vimeo.com
facebook.com
dailymotion.com
ustream.tv — streams and recorded videos
twitch.tv — streams and recorded videos
metacafe.com
video.google.com
WebM, OGV and MP4 files via HTML5 <video> tag

(and some other Russian websites I cared less to post the link of)


The youtube code is still in the script of the forum but made invisible in the bar of available BBcodes so the old youtube links posted on the forum (which are a lot) still stay intact. Please use the video code to embedd your Youtube videos in the future. Thanks, and have fun!
