I've just installed video embedding to the website. If your ActiveX controls are functioning, you *should* be able to use the "Video" button next to the image file when creating new posts.

Otherwise, you'll need to use straight code in the posts.

If you can embed a video, you MUST embed a video on this site. It's a little bit more typing but it will make everyone's visit more enjoyable.


How To:
Most internet videos have an "embed" link or similar link available. Use those to find the information you need to put between the codes if it's not in the URL of the video.

BREAK.COM VIDEOS

Mjk3ODIwYou are looking for a alphanumeric combination similar to "Mjk3ODIw" which will appear after opening the embed link.

Mjk3ODIw




YOUTUBE VIDEOS

N560NCIsaS8Another easy one. Click embed, get the #, copy it to the brackets. This would produce:

N560NCIsaS8





GOOGLE VIDEOS

4134245987747704408Again, just grab the # in the URL and place it between the brackets. Example:

4134245987747704408




MYSPACE VIDEOS

1525458122Copy the number at the end of the URL. Easy. Example:

1525458122




EBAUMS WORLD VIDEOS

2007/05/hilarious-ventriloquistThis is the most complex of them. You have to go to the EMBED section to the right of the video and find the year/date/name (do not include the extension). Copying this will give something like this:

2007/05/hilarious-ventriloquist




METACAFE VIDEOS

503533/rough_cruiseThis one requires some precise syntax but is otherwise easy. Copy the number and the title from the URL but do not include a "/" at either the beginning or the end. Example:

503533/rough_cruise




FILEFRONT VIDEOS

191959You want to find the number like "191959" in the embed link below the video. This is NOT the same number that you find in the URL; instead it occurs early in the embed source link. Example:

191959




STAGE6 DIVX VIDEOS

3674
These have to come from the Stage6 site itself (which most are). Find the # (for instance, "3674") early on in the object code after clicking "Share Video." Example:

3674


If you find more...
Let me know. I can add more code to allow us to grab videos from other sites, assuming they offer embedded video.
