Video helpers
« on: December 17, 2012, 10:47:56 AM »
OK, what video helper mods are installed on the board, youtube is fine for just sharing a video but I don't use youtube for my own material, I use viddler and others.  Is there a generic helper for flash, is so what is it.  There are helper mods available for SMF to allow video posting not limited to just...  yuck! ..."youtube" :glare:

SMF requires certain code in order to post, Vimeo doesn't supply that code, though you could check with their help forum, maybe there is a work around.

It takes a mod for SMF for each video host, just a simple script that gives the right host address, they change from time to time but easy to update.  You can't do any work around to place a video here, it has to have the helper, youtube has been around so long all the boards usually have it embedded as a default share host.  You must use the host player since each are a little different and that's part of the correct address to the video.  I'll take a look at SMF mods and see what they use.

Cool, if you find one, send it to Taxed, maybe he can install it.
