BB Code


Recommended Posts

Apparently there are two ways to allow embedding of videos in forums:

1) BB code - several developers have created BB codes such as:

  • ... - specifically for youtube videos
  • ... or [m]...[/m] - supports wider range of videos.

You will need to download the code and install it via AdminCP before it can be used. See

2) Automatic Media Embedding - this is really neat. It "smartly scans new and edited posts for URLs from a customisable variety of web sites (i.e. YouTube or Amazon or about 200 others). If it finds a match, AME will 'transform' the URL into inline embedded media without your users ever having to even think about it." This is a vbulletin plugin that needs to be installed - see

Any possibility of doing one of the above?
