Is it possible to post YouTube and other videos with SMF 2.1? If it's possible, how is it done?

In 2015? Are there any mods available now for posting videos that are compatible with SMF 2.1?

Is it possible to add BBcode that would allow the posting of videos? If it is, how would that be done?

Hi Paul, posting videos, as in, video attachments - That is possible and always has been...

I think the main issue isn't whether it's the year 2015, but a lot of servers have limits in terms of how much storage can be uploaded/downloaded.

I just want to be able to put a YouTube video in a post, preferably without the need of a modification. With the popularity of video websites like YouTube, Vimeo, etc. it seems kind of silly that my question even needs to be asked. I hope I'm not sounding rude, I'm just a little frustrated that I don't see a way to do it.

we are not yet accepting mods for SMF 2.1, so we have no idea if any mods exist that can do what you want with SMF 2.1.

You're welcome. Just remember that since 2.1 is still in beta and continues to be updated, the mod will have to be updated as well to ensure it continues to work properly. (assuming that the mod author continues to update his mod to coincide with the 2.1 updates)

We can't possibly support every video site out there, and supporting auto-embed (eg you post a link and it turns into an embedded video) is complicated. There's still a possibility that bbcode for YouTube might be added before the final, but no guarantee.

The biggest issue is the video sites tend to update/change their video embed code/urls often. I have deal with this my embed mod all the time.

exactly...  and THAT is why we (and most of the other softwares, for what its worth) deal with embedding like that as a MOD, not as a core function.

I did it so

Open Subs-editor.php search and change it so from  (row1705 to 1709)

search : default/Sources/Subs-Editor.php

Code: [Select]
              array(
                                        'image' => 'flash',
                                'code' => 'flash',
                                'before' => '[flash=500,300]',
                                'after' => '[/flash]',
                                 'description' => $editortxt['flash']
                        ),

change in

Code: [Select]
              array(
                                        'image' => 'flash',
                                'code' => 'flash',
                                'before' => '[flash=500,300]https://www.youtube.com/v/',
                                'after' => '[/flash]',
                                 'description' => $editortxt['flash']
                        ),

You just need to add the code to the end of the link, See image

and they must flash.png icon, load by default / images / bbc


admin must be enabled in flash -> ...Admin/Forum/Post and Topics/Postsettings
and under BBcode enable Flash -> ...Confugirations/Feaures and Options/Bulletin Board Code

Do note...  enabling direct access to embed flash components is a serious security risk to your site.

Alternatively, you can use HTML5 integration, but you must activate Enable basic HTML in posts

Confugirations/Feaures and Options/Bulletin Board Code/activate Enable basic HTML in posts

See images

You would have to expand the in, Subs-editor.php     so that it is inserted by Editor

enabling general users to access the html BBC is a SERIOUS security risk, since it will allow them to use ***ANY*** HTML or javascript and can thus compromise your site in a heartbeat.

Allows users to access the flash BBC is also a secruity risk, since flash components can be designed to hack your site or the users who are accessing your site.

In other words, BOTH of your suggestions are SERIOUS risks and are ***NOT*** recommended to be used by anyone who has an ounce of security sense for their site.

No you're wrong, HTML Basic is only simple tags, not a complex code.

People want to multimedia in their forums, which is
normal.

using the HTML BBC is ***NOT*** just basic/simple html tags

that checkbox to enable simple tags has nothing to do with the HTML BBC --   it means that the system will convert the bold, italics, etc into BBC.   Allowing the use of the HTML BBC as you show in your example will allow ***ANY*** HTML.

And there are SEVERAL mods which allow embedding multimedia. THOSE tend to be moderately safe, since they preparse the content

Yes, all of the paid forum scripts have it as a core feature and they've been doing so for years.

I agree, its a great feature. But the problem is maintaining it. We don't have people around at least doing daily check, I mean if something changes in API we need to wait bit more than "paid" scripts because we don't have office we can morning and work all day on SMF.

You may end up waiting a month or more just for a small fix because creating the patch and releasing it not just a one button.
