Youtube bbcode problem

Postby catmando » Fri Dec 09, 2016 8:07 pm

Dal, can you take a look at the youtube shortcode as it appears to not work in some instances or needs to be made easier for people to use so that it does embed properly and display on any device

Atari Falcon Tos 4.04 | 14mb | IDE CF 2GB
Atari STE Tos 1.62 | 4mb | HxC Slim SD 8GB
Atari STE Tos 1.62/2.06 | 4mb | Floppy A-B Mod | IDE SD 4GB

you might need to have it force the html5 version of the video. instead of flash.
Falcon + AB040 + Eclipse PCI + ATI Rage VGA card + NE2000 Ethernec + HxC Floppy Emulator
MegaSTE 4MB + CosmosEx / 1040 STF for hardware dev

I think we discussed the youtube BBcode years ago during the last forum upgrade.
With many browsers disabling flash now for security reasons, this should probably be changed to HTML5 now.

IIRC, we had this BBcode definition:

Code: Select all


For HTML5, the HTML replacement should now read:

Code: Select all

<b>{SIMPLETEXT}</b><p> <iframe width="640" height="360" src="{TEXT}" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

I have this working fine in another phpbb forum.
