How to embed movies on VF

Postby fredrikw » Mon Apr 05, 2010 2:55 pm

Youtube
1. Find the video you want to embed, for example http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oAuRPSbT7-8, remove the word "watch?" and replace the = with /, like this: http://www.youtube.com/v/oAuRPSbT7-8
2. On the youtube page, press the embed button to find out the dimensions of the movie (in this case 480x385)
3. Format the flash-tag like this:
Code: Select all
[flash=480,385]http://www.youtube.com/v/oAuRPSbT7-8[/flash]

where 480,385 is the dimensions taken from the youtube page, and the link is the modified one from step 1.


New tag added, just insert the complete youtube URL between the youtube-tags. Tag added as a button in the full editor as well.
Code: Select all
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oAuRPSbT7-8[/youtube]




Vimeo
1. Find the video you want to embed, for example http://vimeo.com/10070693, add moogaloop.swf?clip_id= before the movie-id in the URL, like this http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=10070693
2. On the vimeo page, press the embed button to find out the dimensions of the movie (in this case 400x225)
3. Format the flash-tag like this:
Code: Select all
[flash=400,225]http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=10070693[/flash]

where 400,225 is the dimensions taken from the vimeo page, and the link is the modified one from step 1.

Put it all together, and you'll get this:

you mean like this?


from http://vimeo.com/10070693
again, click on embed and get the dimensions of the movie to include inside the flash-tag, then add moogaloop.swf?clip_id= before the movie-id in the URL, like this http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=10070693 ending up with something that looks like this.
Code: Select all
[flash=400,225]http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=10070693[/flash]

rockin'
"The worker has the right to leave his boss, but can she do it? And if she does quit him, is it in order to lead a free life; where she will have no master but herself? No, she leaves to sell herself to another employer. She's driven by the same hunger. Thus the worker's liberty is only a theoretical freedom, lacking any means of realization; an utter falsehood."

where did you try to post a flash movie? there might be trouble with permissions that we haven't found yet, so we need you all to try it out and report back any problems.

sorry, now it should work in all subforums.

this new forum software is quite complex, good for many things but it takes a while to get familliar with it.
