I found a mod to allow youtube videos in the forums.. but it didn't work, because of all the other mods I have here. So I took the idea they had and made my own!

its now working, you will see a small youtube icon when posting, beside the "video" button.

When you press it, it will promt you for a URL, enter a youtube url like this:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jBnF08Xn06g
then it will ask for the width and height, which you can use the default values if you want, or make it bigger.

Then the youtube video will be embeded into your post! here is a great sample.

the special youtube tag will only work for Youtube videos.
I might make a special googlevideo one.

But if you get the direct file linke to a google video you can use the flash button.

yes it was possible to do this with the flash button, but you had to get the url/path of the actual vidoe file. Which isn't present on anywhere on the youtube page, unless you look at the code source. So this special tag lets you enter just the url in your address bar, and it will extract the video id from it.

You need to make sure the 'www' is in there.

What you have to do is remove the ca and replace it with "www"...

I think i figured out a way to get any variation of youtube.com to work.

youtube.com
www.youtube.com
ca.youtube.com

BUT i think it might have broke most of the existing posts with the youtube bbcode... If you simply edit an old post, not changing anything, just re-submit, it will fix it. Also any new posts should work fine.

Kinda sucks... but will be better for the future I think.
