View Full Version : VB5 - YouTube embedding

08 Apr 2013, 19:09

I have been tasked with upgrading to v5 from v3.x The existing version will automatically embed youtube videos without having to create a custom BBCode to wrap the URL with. I do not see this working in v5. I don't see anything from the v3 install that calls out anything extra added in to do this.

What is the process for wrapping the youtube URL properly and having is show the embedded video player, vs. the link for the video?

vB3 didn't support native embedding of videos. You must have had a third party addon.

You would need to somehow convert all of the text in the database to use the newer [video] tag, and then re-parse it.
