Very nice vbgamer45 :-)
Can you add support for www.stream.cz please?
Will look into adding it for the next update.

Just installed the 1.0.4 mod on 2.0 RC3 and it seems to be working quite well.  When at the Settings option, I noticed that the options are not left justified in the columns but are centered. Is this by design or due to my not using the default theme?
They are currently centered by design. Still deciding on how many per column and if I should do them in alphabetical order or not.


Also update on some features in the future:
Planned features:
-Fetch for complex media sites that we can not determine the player information from the url which requires another web request to figure. This will be cached by url of the video site.
-Allow editing and adding of sites
-Settings for height,width and overriding default height,width of players.
-Later on maybe remote download option for site definition files so you do not have to install the mod again to get the latest updates.

i'm another new person... you all sound like seasoned pros.  it's hard to imagine that there are people who know nothing and are tearing their hair out over this mod that you find so easy.  :)  aarghhhhhhh!!!!!!!

i have a need for this mod's function.  i sure will appreciate it when i finally get it to work.  :)

so i am making a plea for simplicity.  step by step, blow by blow, how it works.  please??? 

i installed the mod.  it says it's ready to go.  i have clicked on 'youtube' in the settings.  i have put in the link youtube provides.  i have put in the embed code youtube provides.  the post shows html only.  no viewer.  what am i missing?  is there a setting in the forum that prevents it from going to 'video viewer'? 

i'm trying to keep my forum as plain vanilla as possible, so i might have turned off settings that need to be on.

do i have to allow certain bbc tags?   or can i not see the viewer because it recognizes me as admin, not a guest or member?

You need the link to the video not the embed code.

For example you need this:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nabo1iTcA5w

You can find it in your browser address bar or by clicking the share button on youtube

Yes this mod you basically takes the link to the video and put in a post.
Then it auto embeds the video player into the post. So users don't leave your site. Which is a nice benefit

i tried the link only.  it did not make a video viewer show up. 

is it possible i have set something in the forum options that makes it not work?  thank you.

vbgamer45

What link did you use? And do you have that video site enabled under settings?

on your test forum - i know the link is good. 
i'm sure your test forum is good.   
what is not good is how it shows up on my forum.
did you test the link to my forum? 

my question is, what i need to do to make it show up in MY forum? 

IS THERE A SETTING IN THE SMALL MACHINES FORUM THAT IS
REQUIRED TO BE "ON" FOR THIS MOD TO WORK? 

thanks.

Flash is required but seems like from the topic link that it is either not picking up the link in the post or not enabled in settings or something else happened.

Please, don't shout.

First, make sure that the sites you want to embed are enabled. In the admin area, go to the top-level "Simple Audio Video Embedder" settings section. Make sure the sites you want are marked with checks. Once they are, click the "Save Settings" button to enable the sites to have embedded videos in your forum.

Now, you want to test the modification. Make a new post with a link to a video on one of the sites. You don't need anything fancy, just copy the link in your browser's location bar and paste it in the post.

Once you have made your post, when you view it, the video should show up embedded unless the video owner disabled the ability to embed their video.

thank you.  i did all that.  i am the owner of the video and i did not disable the ability at youtube for it to be embedded.

this is what i am wondering...

is there a way i could have tweaked SMF so that it won't work with this mod? 

i have disabled a lot of the bells & whistles because i want a very simple forum.  but i need to have this feature because i will be making a lot of instructional videos. 

or should i just download that other A/V embed mod?
