Testing new video empedding feature


Post by Charles L. Cotton » Sat Jul 19, 2014 11:29 am


I've added a new tag for embedding videos. It is supposed to work on many different video formats, but I don't have time to test different ones.

This new "video" tag does not require any editing of the URL, you simply copy it, click the "video" tag, then past the URL you copied between the tags. Youtube hosts the vast majority of videos and the above video is from YouTube. I pasted the entire URL including the "www" and it works fine. I'm not deleting the YouTube tag because that would deactivate all of the existing YouTube videos that have previously been posted. So you can post YouTube videos with either the "youtube" or "video" tags, but if you use the "youtube" tag, remember to edit the URL.

Thanks Wes for this great tip! It will make it much easier for folks to post any videos, but especially YouTube videos.

"... empedding feature"?
Probably need to install a spelling checker for the subject line too :lol:

All kidding aside, this is awesome news!
