YET ANOTHER YOUTUBE BBCODE TAG v4.14
By Dougiefresh -> Link to Mod



Introduction
This modification adds a BBCode to the forum that shows a YouTube video in your post.

These BBCode takes these forms:

[youtube]{youtube link}[/youtube]
[youtube width=x height=y]{youtube link}[/youtube]
[yt]{youtube ID}[/yt]
[yt {parameters}]{youtube ID}[/yt]
[yt_user]{username}[/yt_user]
[yt_user {parameters}]{username}[/yt_user]
[yt_search]{search query}[/yt_search]
[yt_search {parameters}]{search query}[/yt_search]

where width and height is specified by x and y.  If width and height aren't specified, width is 100% of the post display area and height in a 16:9 ratio to the width.

The yt_user bbcode will show videos by the specified YouTube username.

The yt_search bbcode will show videos matching the provided search phrase.

This mod should be able to display a valid YouTube video when passing URLs.  For example, all of the following will display the YouTube video at http://www.youtube.com/v/fA4cphzsjn8.

Substituting http://youtube.com, http://www.youtube-nocookies.com, http://youtu.be, and http://www.youtu.be also works.  https:// works instead of http://.  Please note any other parameters specified in the URL are ignored.

Optional parameters and values for all YouTube bbcodes are:
o width = Specifies the width of the iframe area.
o height = Specifies the height of the iframe area.
o start = Specifies how far into the video to start at.  Valid formats: "Seconds" or "Minutes:Seconds"
o end = Specifies how far into the video to stop at.  Valid formats: "Seconds" or "Minutes:Seconds"
o autoplay = 1, yes, on or true
o color = red or white
o theme = dark or light
o loop = 1, yes, on or true
o controls = 0, no, off, hide or false
o showinfo = 0, no, off, hide or false
o privacy = 1, yes, on or true

Profile Settings
There is a new option under Profile => Look and Layout called Show YouTube videos as a link.  Checking this box makes the mod create links instead of embedded videos in your post.

Admin Settings
This BBCode may be disabled by going into the Admin => Forum => Posts and Topics => Bulletin Board Code and unchecking the bbcodes you don't want to use.  You may also be uninstall this mod in order to disable it.

The link might fail, a few times, coz the wiki's crap, at the moment, for some reason. Keep trying, though, and it'll load, eventually.

Okay, these lines have to do with the parsers' ability to accept only the youtube bbcode (and contents) as the only content in the post.  In other words, you put this in your post:
[youtube]{some id here}[/youtube]
and that's all and the editor will accept it.  If you have another mod that makes the same alteration to these areas, then you should be fine skipping those operations.  Although, I find it weird that the first operation works and the second doesn't.....

Does this mod display "link invalid" when it's actually invalid?

At present time, entering an invalid link only gets you a blank square....  I'll figure out something to make this work correctly for that situation....

Feature request: could you add an option for users so that when they have eg a slow internet they can load the vids as links?

  • When v1.5 is installed, the bbc codes get messed up. I couldn't get color to work and ALL my url tags where displayed as links.
