Videos: new upload feature

We have a new feature here at TRF that will automatically embed videos from popular Video sites (Youtube for example) in the posts.

All that you have to do is simply post the url and the plugin will take care of the rest :)

Let us know if you find one not working :)

Is there a way to stop it from automatically embedding - I find it really slow to load on threads like this one which are basically lists of Youtube videos?

A page of videos can take some time to load but embedding has been programmed into the Forums for overall convenience.

If you just want to post the YouTube link without actually embedding the video in the post, the easiest method is:

> copy and paste the url (link) into the post;
> insert a 'blocker' character, eg
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TSyLLWZ5jp8

Although the http... prefix may sometimes appear as a link in the finished post, the serves to disrupt the url coding and prevents the video from being downloaded/embedded.

The blocker can be any character so long as it's readily identifiable as a blocker and not mistaken as part of the link.
The blocking character can be easily deleted by a third party when they copy and paste the link into their browser.

The blocking character I've used in this example, , is ALT+254 coloured red.
[ie while the ALT key is held down, key 254 on the number pad, then release]

New Feature: Videos

Hello everyone! I just wanted to announce that we are testing a new feature that allows you to upload videos to your posts. When you click the "Manage Attachments" button, you should see an option to upload a video. Here is a screenshot:

Click image for larger version

Name:	Capture.JPG
Views:	127
Size:	32.3 KB
ID:	287281

It is also located right under the message area when you are making a new post/thread. If you add a video there, it will start uploading immediately.

I recommend starting with some small videos if possible. The current limit is 500MB for videos.

This is a new feature, and I expect there to be some bugs, so please do not hesitate posting problems that you may be having.

So to launch the first public video here, here you go:
Attached Files
File Type: mp4 Duck and Cover (1951) Public Domain video.mp4 (27.63 MB, 0 views)
