New forum tags: FLV file embedding

Postby Xerxes on Thu Aug 06, 2009 12:18 am

How can I embed *.flv files?

A lot of content providers on the internet are distributing their content in flv (flash video) format. To allow you to easily show others this kind of file it is now possible to embed them on the forum.

The new BBcodes are flv. You must supply the URL to the video, or if you wish to use an alternate size you can also specify a width and height for the file.

All you need to do is copy and paste the full url for the video file, and ensure it is inside the relevant tags:

Code:
Code: Select all
[flv]VIDEOURL[/flv]


Example code and embed:
Example code:
Code: Select all
[flv]http://doubleviking.cachefly.net/videos/doubleviking/2009/07/31/vortex-cannon.flv[/flv]


Preview:


You can also specify the width and height of the flv file being played:

Code:
Code: Select all
[flv=WIDTH,HEIGHT]VIDEOURL[/flv]


Example code and embed:
Example code:
Code: Select all
[flv=800,600]http://doubleviking.cachefly.net/videos/doubleviking/2009/07/31/vortex-cannon.flv[/flv]


Preview:


Help! It's not working!

  • Did you get the path to the *.flv?
  • Did you specify the dimensions correctly?

If you need any assistance, PM me or another moderator. :)

Feel free to try out the tags below. :)
