how to EMBED video


Recommended Posts



How does one use the EMBED code often found on other sites. If i try copying the URI located within the embedded code, it just comes up as a straight hyperlink instead of a video window.

Hi Capricorn,


Youtube videos should be automatically recognised and displayed as a video.


You can use the Media BBCode to insert them as well. Either typing manually or via this button:media.png


[media] http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=some-random-code [/media] 


Let me know what site you're trying to embed from - I'll check if it's supported. If not we should be able to add support.

it's a flash vid from pinkbike, it's the 2nd vid on that page


<object width='500' height='250'><param name='allowFullScreen' value='true' /><param name='AllowScriptAccess' value='always' /><param name='movie' value='http://www.pinkbike.com/v/160298' /><embed src='http://www.pinkbike.com/v/160298' type='application/x-shockwave-flash' width='500' height='250' allowFullScreen='true' AllowScriptAccess='always' /></embed></object>

okee dokee, so let me get this straight.


to embed a video we need to get you to tweak the list to recognize the site? there is no way to insert the code snippet [object] random video yadda yadda that i copied from the embed button [/object]


i've been trying to upload this one:



and i had the code:

<object width="446" height="326"><param name="movie" value="http://video.ted.com/assets/player/swf/EmbedPlayer.swf"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" /><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always"/><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><param name="bgColor" value="#ffffff"></param> <param name="flashvars" value="vu=http://video.ted.com/talks/dynamic/GrahamHill_2010-medium.flv&su=http://images.ted.com/images/ted/tedindex/embed-posters/GrahamHill-2010.embed_thumbnail.jpg&vw=432&vh=240&ap=0&ti=860&introDuration=15330&adDuration=4000&postAdDuration=830&adKeys=talk=graham_hill_weekday_vegetarian;year=2010;theme=new_on_ted_com;theme=a_taste_of_ted2010;event=TED2010;&preAdTag=tconf.ted/embed;tile=1;sz=512x288;" /><embed src="http://video.ted.com/assets/player/swf/EmbedPlayer.swf" pluginspace="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" bgColor="#ffffff" width="446" height="326" allowFullScreen="true" allowScriptAccess="always" flashvars="vu=http://video.ted.com/talks/dynamic/GrahamHill_2010-medium.flv&su=http://images.ted.com/images/ted/tedindex/embed-posters/GrahamHill-2010.embed_thumbnail.jpg&vw=432&vh=240&ap=0&ti=860&introDuration=15330&adDuration=4000&postAdDuration=830&adKeys=talk=graham_hill_weekday_vegetarian;year=2010;theme=new_on_ted_com;theme=a_taste_of_ted2010;event=TED2010;"></embed></object>


but nothing works without calling you right?

in the end i just found a copy of it on youtube, but hey surely the code can be used somehow?
