Video and photo embedding

Video and photo embedding

Postby GoR64 » Mon Jul 06, 2015 7:46 pm

Can we please (my god, PLEASE!) get a sticky on how to embed pics and vids from photobucket, vimeo, etc. on the site, there's a way for everything but they all have their quirks, I really hope we can make this obvious (and easy) for new & old members!

like putting the www. before vimeo embedding, or removing everything but the (v=) kgkadsyfgaeyfg or whatever links from youtube...

Agreed, it really needs clarifying. Also adding to the complication is that some peeps using Tapatalk have a different experience (maybe a plugin update on the server is needed?) and then, when you add in the fact that YouTube videos with copyright music included won't play on mobile devices, the whole thing is a right dogs dinner.
