Hey Doggie

I'm pretty real

Would you like some proof...

Just deleted >100 new spammers. They are swarming in like Muslims to Europe. Dozens every day. I aint got time to IP check this many users.

Once again, if you are real, you got to have somebody vouch for you. It's a shame it has come to this.

Capcha disabled; now getting >200 new spammers a day,

If you are real and want in, you need to find a sponsor to vouch for you. I can't possibly wade through all this shit.

How to embed youtube videos

#15 Post by nero » Wed Jun 05, 2019 1:44 pm

This is the second time I post instructions how edit around the outdated forum code. This the 2nd iteration, so it is not final, perhaps. But I use the template method this time. :mrgreen:

The legacy code accepts embeds in form

Code: Select all

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XXX[/youtube]
where XXX is the unique id of the video.

The id string can be found between "w=" and end of string or letter '&'.

For example from following

Code: Select all

https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=15&v=qQ21KgHF4_U&list=RDqQ21KgHF4_U&t=12
                                                 ***********
We get from the code in insert the id in the template we have

Code: Select all

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qQ21KgHF4_U[/youtube]
And it works charm



Then there some special cases with mobile devices like iPad

Code: Select all

https://youtu.be/HTuL2-ND-68
A good guess is that the id is "HTuL2-ND-68". So inserting the id in the template we have:



Here also the letter '&' can not be a part of the id, so the id stops there.

I hope this helps.

PS. The previous iteration can be found here: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=15761&start=1528
