Default Marc, any chances we can embed youtube stuff?

Ya know, instead of clicking on links to go to youtube, just embed it in our post. Or will that slow us down in any way?

If he says "Yes" you gotta teach me how to do it Mike.

How's that for an answer?

Sounds good to me, but I have no idea how you do it. There might be a hack or some way of doing it, but is a link really that bad? Sounds like work to me.

They have embedding code for the videos. But, I don't know how good of an idea it would be for a message board as you would probably have to enable users to be able to paste HTML and/or javascript and that could leave you open from a security standpoint.

You see them embedded a lot of times on blogs and websites and such, but those folks have control over the coding of the site.

This is what the code looks like:

<object width="425" height="350"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/CQzUsTFqtW0"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/CQzUsTFqtW0" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="350"></embed></object>

Or, it may just be a matter of giving users the option to embed shockwave objects.

I'm completely lost. Might as well be talking about the tradition of Big 10 football.

If you think you're bad, imagine what buckeye is thinking...

I just heard an explosion coming from his home...



In all seriousness, I would have to enable HTML for you to embed that code. Unfortunately, it creates a real security risk as people could use malicious code to redirect pages and worse, so it's not worth the trade-off. (Crap, that serious paragraph just caused another explosion ... he's a goner!)

Yeah, giving him the keys and asking him to perform a technical upgrade would result in this...

Ah, I figured as much. A link isn't that bad, guess I've just become too much like the damn kids at work wanting instant gratification, to lazy to even click a link.


How sad am I?
