YouTube video viewing on forum posts would be great

Postby Voyager » Thu Apr 18, 2013 3:08 pm

I hate leaving the forum to go to YouTube when somebody posts a video link. It would be awesome if we could use the phpBB code like below to be able to watch a video without leaving the thread (just like the img code works for pictures). It seems like most forums allow it. Just an idea.

I was hoping for an embedding feature too, maybe he just hasn't got to that part yet.

I am sure the post count will increase considerably when MR forum members will be able to watch and share their favorite melodic rock videos on the forum for the first time!

I agree with this. Embedding YouTube vids would be a very nice addition.
AR is just a longtime net troll who is bored with trolling just Journey most of the time so he's looking for other places to troll and get reactions.

I just tried to post a video in the Steve Perry forum, still no luck.

I think the forums would be more active if people could post examples of the music they are discussing. Just a thought.

The work around to get this activated is REALLY complicated. No time to address right now. It involves coding the raw files rather than a simple plug in.
