Youtube code not working

Postby Talwyn Aureliano » Sat Oct 11, 2008 1:14 am

Hi Shir'le

I posted two clips with the youtube code and it doesn't appear to be working for new posts?
In War: Resolution. In Defeat: Defiance. In Victory: Magnanimity. In Peace: Goodwill.

I noticed and I think it's because the youtube url you used uses "au" instead of "www". I'll look into fixing that, but for now you can get it to work by replacing it manually (as YouTube seems to be able to do the mapping itself).

Fixed. And improved in general.

There's now several different kinds of strings it recognizes.

You can now do the url with the "www" like this:

Code: Select all

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7a2K4pcAFIM[/youtube]

Or you can leave off the "www":

Code: Select all

[youtube]http://youtube.com/watch?v=7a2K4pcAFIM[/youtube]

Or you can use a two-character region code:

Code: Select all

[youtube]http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=7a2K4pcAFIM[/youtube]

Or you can just dispense with the url altogether and just use the 11-digit id (the bit after "v="):

Code: Select all

[youtube]7a2K4pcAFIM[/youtube]

That should hopefully be enough to catch most all cases, but if there's any specific case that makes sense to use and which still doesn't work then let me know and I'll add that as well.

Closing the topic since this is fixed now.
