    We updated the forum today and decided to add some more functionality at the same time So, you all have now the ability to embed videos from Gametrailer/Gamersyde/Gamevideos/Youtube to the forum posts. Concretely it means that you post flash videos from these site directly in your replies. For thoses who are concerned about the bandwidth and noise related issues, note that the videos do not directly start without your consent, nor do they load a lot of information to display a thumbnail.

    It goes without saying that it's expected from users to only post videos that are related to the discussion. Content unrelated to video gaming should be posted in the General Discussion forum. Same thing, it's a discussion forum first and foremost, thus try to add some thoughtful comments to your post and not just rely on posting videos and leave it at that.

    So here are the examples:

    New: Gamersyde Videos

    Go Gamersyde.com, find the video you'd want to embed, for instance:

    http://www.gamersyde.com/news_4905_en.html

    Click on the "Watch the video now (streaming)" link:

    http://www.gamersyde.com/stream_4385_en.html

    Copy the video URL hash: 4385_en in this case. And post it using the tag:

    [noparse][gs]4385_en[/gs][/noparse]

    The result:

    [gs]4385_en[/gs]



    Gametrailers Videos

    Go to Gametrailers.com, find the video you'd want to embed, for instance:

    http://www.gametrailers.com/player/23742.html

    Copy the video URL number: 23742 in this case. And post it using the tag:

    [noparse][gt]23742[/gt][/noparse]

    The result:

    [gt]23742[/gt]



    Gamevideos Videos

    Go to Gamevideos.com, if the site works for you (...), find the video you'd want to embed, for instance:

    http://gamevideos.com/video/id/1853

    Copy the video URL number, which is at the right of the videoplayer on the site: 1853 in this case. And post it using the tag:

    [noparse][gv]1853[/gv][/noparse]

    The result:

    [gv]1853[/gv]



    Youtube Videos

    Go to Youtube.com, find the video you'd want to embed, for instance:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eKlbx5niBu8

    Copy the video URL hash: eKlbx5niBu8 in this case. And post it using the tag:

    [noparse][/noparse]

    The result:



    See the VBcode faq for more examples.

    nice one
    for users with limited bandwidth (eg me)
    just use the flashblock plugin (though if u have a bandwidth limit youve most likely have it installed already)

    It's good to see this feature now available here at B3D.

    It's very friendly to low-bandwidth users. You don't even need to run with FlashBlock. It only shows the first frame of the video and doesn't start pulling it down unless you click on play. I've been running this feature on my forums for a while now. It hasn't caused us any issues.

    Would it be too much to ask inclusion of the original url along with the embed code?
    Most of the time, I prefer HD version or download the video and watch it offline.

    Most videos, if you click them when they are playing, you will be taken to the site hosted version.

    You are right, I forgot about that. As I said, I don't watch embedded flash often, flashblock at work.

    Never mind then.

    Thread updated

    We added support for the excellent game media site, Gamersyde.com .

    I didn't know they allowed embedding there, or else it would have been added from the start.

    Yeah, I think it would do with being stuck for a little while for everyone to get used to the new function.

    Just trying to give back, so here's some BBCode I worked out, so the Admins here can add if they feel like it.

    Here's the usage guide for what goes inside the tags:

    GoogleVideo:
    HTML:
    <embed style="width:400px; height:326px;" id="VideoPlayback" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" src="http://video.google.com/googleplayer.swf?docId={param}&hl=en" flashvars=""> </embed>
    CollegeHumor:
    HTML:
    <object width="480" height="360"> <param name="movie" quality="best" value="http://www.collegehumor.com/moogaloop/moogaloop.swf?clip_id={param}&fullscreen=1"></param> <param name="allowfullscreen" value="true"></param> <embed src="http://www.collegehumor.com/moogaloop/moogaloop.swf?clip_id={param}&fullscreen=1"  type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="480" height="360" quality="best" allowfullscreen="true"></embed> </object>
    LiveVideo:
    HTML:
    <embed src="http://www.livevideo.com/flvplayer/embed/{param}" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" quality="high" WIDTH="445" HEIGHT="369" wmode="transparent"></embed>
    MySpaceVideo:
    HTML:
    <embed src="http://lads.myspace.com/videos/vplayer.swf" flashvars="m={param}&type=video" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="430" height="346"></embed>
