Posting YouTube, Vimeo and TCM videos w/new board format

PostTue Jul 19, 2011 9:24 am

To post a YouTube video in your post:
Code: Select all
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tuhZuMl9StM[/youtube]

You also must make sure that your link uses "http" and not "https".

To post a Vimeo video in your post:
Code: Select all
[vimeo]http://vimeo.com/22439234[/vimeo]


Note that there is a bug where the Vimeo procedure works most but not all of the time. We are still trying to figure out what is wrong.

To post a TCM video in your post:
Code: Select all
[tcm]http://www.tcm.com/mediaroom/video/205517/Caesar-and-Cleopatra-Movie-Clip-You-re-Bald-.html[/tcm]


Posting an archive.org clip is a little more complicated. You must know the archive.org URL and the .mp4 filename. You can get the .mp4 filename by clicking the "embed" link on the archive.org page for your film, and then pasting it into a word processor and them pasting it into a text message. It is likely to be similar but not exactly like the last part of the URL:
Code: Select all
