Flash Video Addon

edited August 2006 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Hi, To all the who contribute to this product, thank you, great work! I am not a devloper and only copy and paste code to get things to work (I know thats lame, but I just dont have the time! and at least I am honest) To my question, I am Running Vanilla 1 and would like to know, is it possible to have Flash Videos to display and do streamming from Youtube? We have a few friends that share information and gadget reviews, and would be great if we can addin video. the code that you get from you tube looks like this: <object width="425" height="350"><param name="movie" value=""></param><embed src="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="425" height="350"></embed></object> This site has a good example of using the above string to share video thanks for the help

    you need the HTML Formatter addon. When you put it on your server (or if you already have it) you need to go into extensions/HTMLFormatter/default.php and change line 25 as follows: Remove the 'object', and 'embed', items from inside the ( ). then when someone wants to post a video, make sure they choose 'Html' from the "Format comments as' buttons below the comments box.

    That's a bad idea to allow the use of these tag.
