Youtube videos can't be added to new BBS

Post by AngryGayPope » Tue Jan 12, 2016 10:25 pm

I have complained for some time that the BBS software running the board was very outdated. Suddenly it got updated and I was happy.

Unfortunately, the main problem with the board persists.

There is still no way to insert videos into a posting. They just end up as links like this:

Is that function going to be added? Because it is really sorely lacking. I don't know any other message board of any kind that does not allow video links to show up as mini-youtube windows.

Tested the format in the link, with no luck.

Settings say flash is not enabled. That might be why the embedding format isn't working.

I can't embed this video but it explains how the administrator can set up their phpBB bulletin board to embed youtube videos.

There is some setup required with some code that needs to be entered. There are many such videos on Youtube. The one for which I provided a link seemed to be the best explanation of how to do it, among the three that I viewed.

I figured out the three-line-button on the left gets me to "New Post" or "Unread Posts," finally, so I withdraw my question about a "New Post"button.
