oEmbed on vBulletin?

Hey guys, I was hoping somebody could help me out on getting oEmbed setup on vBulletin...or any of the other variants like Embed.ly instead. I just am not good with figuring this sort of stuff out apparently and I must be missing something on just how to get it up and going.

As a consumer or a provider? You really need to be a bit more forthcoming with details to what exactly you want to achieve (and maybe what you've tried already).

I haven't tried much because I literally don't know where to start. Everyone just gives documentation on how it works but not exactly what I need to do. I am not up to date on coding anything these days, especially with this kind of stuff.

I run a subscription based forum and just would like it if people quit needing to post the twitter embed code themselves, among other things.

So, you would have them post a URL to that service, then parse the answer accordingly? That's not trivial.

You could perhaps do it using an addon I once did, making bbcode with php callback available. http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=264896. Create a twitter bbcode, pass the URL to the PHP script, call oEmbed, parse the answer and create a html output accordingly.

If I understand what you want correctly.

Basically. But I wouldn't even know where to start with that....I am basically looking for something like AME but without needing to add AME. I am starting to think it isn't possible without some plugin like that. Was hoping there was just some code we could slap into the headerinclude.

Not likely. You'd have to process the answer you get back from the serving side.
