Video Posting on The Silver Screen Oasis

Postby moira finnie » March 13th, 2014, 4:30 pm

I have been able to add up-to-date phpbb code to the SSO to allow the posting of videos from Youtube, Vimeo, and Dailymotion. Having this many ways of posting videos is a new experiment for us. If you run into any technical issues, please let the admins know right away by PM or email. As always the Code of Conduct agreed to by all members applies to all postings, so please bear this in mind when adding a video here. Also, posting many videos at once will make a page load much more slowly (even with Broadband Internet connections).

Below is a description of how this feature should be used for each video sharing site. The example shown is for youtube, but the same exact information applies to each video sharing site.

Please Note: For a video to show up here, please use videos with the http at the beginning. Videos with https at the beginning will only appear as links.

Take as an example, this URL address from youtube, which you could copy and paste into the posting screen as shown below:

Then you would highlight the URL and click on the button above the posting space on the right that says youtube to create the link that will embed the video and enable others to view it here without going to youtube.

Image

After you click on the youtube button, you will see the URL bracketed as it appears here:

After this, you would click on Preview and, if everything looks okay to you, then click on Submit and your video will appear in your post.

Here are how the videos from Youtube, Vimeo, and Dailymotion will appear on The Silver Screen Oasis...and yes, all these videos have something to do with Frank Borzage :wink: BTW, I don't recommend posting videos from three different sources in one post generally, since it will slow down the loading time for many connections:
