YouTube BBCode added

I've added another custom BBCode alongside the spoiler code, this time it's for embedding videos from YouTube. All you have to do is put the YouTube video ID between the youtube tags and you'll have an embedded video in your post. There is also a new button on the advanced and quick editors for automatically putting the YouTube tags into your post. Here's an example:

Video I want to use: http://youtube.com/watch?v=qmcFHNOLt0Q
Video ID: qmcFHNOLt0Q
BBCode: [youtube]qmcFHNOLt0Q[/youtube]
Produces:


Enjoy! But remember that all of our forum rules apply to videos, too. If a video you embedded has absolutely nothing to do with the thread at hand, that is equivalent to posting off-topic/thread derailing.

With great power comes great responsibility.

Also you should add "fmt=18" to the end of the code for extra super sexy quality!

I thought about it, Jay, but I'm not sure if everybody wants the high quality versions. To be honest, most of the things you view on YouTube are not for aesthetic purposes and it doesn't really matter what sort of quality they are in. Most people just watch silly videos that they want to have load quickly. I figure if you're really looking for the high quality version you can click the video, go to YouTube, and do it from there.

Another option I was considering was having something like [youtube=Insert caption]VideoID[/youtube] where a styled box would appear around the video with the caption, but I figured it's not really necessary since we can just type whatever we want about the video and then embed it

Edit: since there have been multiple requests, I've added a poll about the high quality bit.

It wouldn't be too hard to add an option to have high quality in the tag would it?

With the poll, I don't think high quality should be forced. It's a luxury that many don't have the patience/connection to appreciate.

If you're interested in high quality, just go to the actually YouTube page and watch it in HQ. This is a forum that should be optimized for viewing across the kbps spectrum.

Also someone can really rape us if they link like a hundred YouTube vids in one post...

vBulletin doesn't have fancy options like this...

On the other hand, I don't see how putting 100 videos in one post will "rape" anybody. The videos don't load until you click them. All that loads is YouTube's FLV player and the default image. There may be 100 images (all with very low file sizes) that load but that's it... I really think someone can do more destruction with images than YouTube videos.

:/ I already made a post with 2 videos, they were nothing close to spam though, they were proof for something.
