I have installed it, but when I put the link it says it doesnt show at all in the post =/ Any problems?

Please post the exact code you're using to embed the video clip.

I was able to installed this mod successfully thru Package manager.
Videos are now being shown using the tags.

Unfortunately, I don't know how to show the youtube.gif on BBC Tags.
So there's no shortcut on adding youtube vidoes except by typing the code
manually.

My forum is SMF 1.1.2 and I'm using Classic YaBB SE Theme

Any suggestions?

FWIW I couldn't get this to install through Pac-Man either. I kept getting a "The package you tried to upload either is not a valid package or has become corrupted." error when I tried to upload it.

Everything did go in OK when I manually installed it.

Running: SMF 1.1.2
Theme: SAF-Multicolor

Thanks for the nice addition to my forum  ;)

Move the youtube.gif file from the default theme directory to your custom theme's BBC images directory.

Make sure you tried to install my version of the mod and not the original and outdated version by another author (who went AWOL long ago).

In that case, navigate to your custom theme's folder and rename Post.template.php to Post.template.php.old.  This should work for you, but please let me know if it doesn't.

This mod is exclusively for YouTube, and I plan on keeping it that way.  :)

Well you're gonna have to be a bit more specific than that.  What errors are you getting?

Just wanted to add my voice to the chorus.

SMF: 1.1.2
Mods: TP 0.9.8

Couldn't get Pac-Man to work with this mod. But I did get it to work by manually editing the various files.

Works great! Though I was wondering if there's a way to make the size defaul. Do we always have to specify the size? 425,350? Just typing the tags without the size does not work.
SMF Version: Ver 2.0.8
Running Mods:
SimplePortal v2.3.5 (disabled)
AEVA 7.2 (enabled)
Stop Spammer 2.3.9 (disabled)
Bad Behaviour mod 1.5.17 (disabled)

If you click on the YouTube icon it throws the size in for you rather than typing it in.

Though not a bug, that fix will be added to the next release of my mod, should I choose to make an update.

question:


I installed the mod, but the video only shows as a white box...

unless I go to quick edit the post and save it (even without making any change), then the video comes up as playable, until I leave the message... if I leave and come back, it again shows as an unplayable white box...   

any ideas?

No ideas at all.  Which website did you install it to?  Would you mind me testing it out to see exactly what you mean?

Kindred, that's quite odd.  It seems to work OK for me using the latest version of Firefox and Opera.  I believe someone earlier in the topic had a similar issue; IIRC, he reinstalled the latest version of Flash, which fixed the white box issue.

Let me know what you get.

hmmm... I get a white box.

and I have flash player 9 installed....


once again, though...   If I use the quickedit icon and save the message (without changing anything), I can see it properly
