Did you try to put the youtube tag inside the center tag?

@live627
that works when i manually add center tag.

Hi, how can i embed a wider youtube video in my SMF forum 2.0,  because whenever i embed a youtube video in my forum, it always appeared in a smaller size instead of the standard youtube size on youtube.

I like to know that too  ;D

Better question would be, if this mod is clearly marked as deprecated, who would support it?

you do this by:
[youtube=640,480]youtubeurl[/youtube]

You can set any of those 2 numbers you want, I believe there is a max though

I have 2.0.1 also, but there is no icon for the youtube button, how exactly do I get it? It's just the word youtube at the moment.
I'm using the core theme, I don't understand 100% what to do to make it appear and I have read the other suggestions.

There will be a file in Themes/default/images/bbc which IIRC is called ytbbc.gif, which will need to be copied from that folder to the images/bbc/ folder of all your other themes.

Thanks, even if I use the default core theme?

I prefer o use this to aeva for the reason it takes less space on the server, am I right to do this?

Arantor

You said 'core' theme, the default theme is a different theme to the 'core' theme...

And it takes about the same space but Aeva is a lot more convenient, with that, users can literally just copy/paste the URL. This takes less processing power, but is much less convenient (and only supports YouTube)

Shame its depreciated. Current version doesn't like YouTube's newer share URLs.

I don't like Avea because we talk about videos a lot but we don't always want them embedded in my forum and the auto-embed often disrupts conversation.

TheListener

There are other mods which do the same job.

Aeva v1.4w supports the Youtube shortlinks.

Careful use of the embedding settings should help with that problem - or just add the tags [ noembed] [ /noembed] (but without any spacing).

Around three quarters of a Megabyte isn't much in the scheme of things nowadays. Most starter hosting packages will give you 1,000MB.

Im having some minor problems with this mod, It installed no problem on the default and works with themes that I have.

On the bayblon theme it works but the youtube botton does not have the youtube gif. I went ahead and added the gif to this theme bbc folder.

im looking to add this code

[Installing the mod will only fully install the mod on the SMF Default Core Theme.
For all other themes which have a custom Post.template.php a manual edit will be required to add the BBCode Button.]

The theme im using does not have a "post template file"

Here's my question, can I copy the "post template file" in the default theme and add it to the theme im using?

Best

Jeremy

1- you really should not even bother using this mod. aeva does everything this mod does, better.

2- no, don't copy anything. if the template file does not exist, the system uses the default version.
