Worked like a treat but when I tried to embed more than one in a single topic the iframe just enclosed a link to the main index page - cms portal page. I use SMF  embedded in Joomla, perhaps the problem is there.

domain.com/smf  displayed  domain.com/index.php

Useing embed once on a page was ok though.

i kinda like the idea using embed code instead of just the url like the other embed mod does

in reality we don't have to update the pattern when there is a code change and also url embed mod has limited patterns to the video sites

anyway i haven't test this mod yet, still upgrading my site, but doesn't this sorta give member the ability to use html in post?

There 're mods that don't even have a button to insert the url. Members aren't admins nor psychics to know about it.

True.

Doesn't flash button do the same?

For some reason after I embed the code into a post, it just shows up on the post as plain text. It does not process the code. I have html and flash enabled on the forum.
I am using SMF version 2.0
I can PM you with a link if you want to see what I am referring too.

Update:
It works with Youtube but not Umapper (a custom map website).

nikan

The attachment mod includes the umapper embed code.
Thanks for using it.

Will enabling flash really pose a security risk for the forum?

SMF seems to put much emphasize on how enabling flash will create security risks, and I surely don't want that :(

But, this mod is great, I tried different kinds of code including the "youtu.be" link and it still works :D that's why I want to keep it while still understanding the risks. :)

What is the worst thing people could do by exploiting the enabled flash?

Anyone knows anything about this? any answer is much appreciated, thank you in advance :)

I am having problems getting this to work. It says that it has installed successfully, the .gif for the button is in the correct place, the changes in sub and sub-editor are all there, but still I neither see the new button in my editor nor are [embed] tags processed. Totally no clue why. I tested this on 2 different smf boards (both 2.0), one has already some extra stuff installed which maybe could cause a problem, but the other one is a completly vanilla install.

Anyone has an idea where I could log into to find the problem?

You have unchecked 'Embed flash into posts' for 'Post Settings'. You must check it to enable both embedded flash and embedded code in to posts.

You should update file into mod site on Link to mod, or should notify members download new one on Topic support ;)

Double check the installation.

Tomy Tran

From youtube. I had un-installed it then (sorry for bad news but it doesn't work).

Using SMF 2.0+, I can add youtube via flash button by change youtube url from

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iTA463bLJsw

to

http://www.youtube.com/v/iTA463bLJsw

(change = to / and remove watch?) and it work very good, not test other media channel.

nikan

You used the shorturl or the embed code of youtube video for this mod?
