Embed Gametrailers Videos in Your Posts

Recommended Posts

Just like YouTube videos, you can now embed Gametrailers videos directly into your posts using the new Gametrailers BBCode. The code is.....

 

[gt]Video ID Here[/gt]

You can type the code yourself or on the post/reply topic page look at the Quick Access menu, click on Insert: Gametrailers, you will be prompted with the following text.....

 

Enter the Gametrailers Video ID below, this can be found in your browsers address bar at the end of a link to a Gametrailers video, EG "37154.html". Always remove the .html part.

Copy and past the Gametrailers video ID and click OK, remebering to no include the .html part. If it works you should end up with this.....

I guess this means there is stuff I want to see over at gametrailers - if you've gone to the trouble to make it easier to add!

Appears to be the video it self, not the BBCode. Because this one works....

 

 

The same Splinter Cell video is on YouTube anyway.

What about embedded MegaVideo videos? Will you included that soon?

Never heard of MegaVideo before.... so probably not.

 

Chances are if you find a video on another site and we don't support the BBCode to embed it here you will find the same video on YouTube anyway.

I've been thinking about videos from moddb. Usually youtube is all we need, but sometimes they do have exclusive videos/trailers at their site that are not yet available from youtube.

How can we embed their videos in our forums?

 

I saw this trailer today, and I wanted to post about it... Here is the code from moddb here if that helps.

 

or

<object width="560" height="420"><param name="movie" value="http://www.moddb.com/media/embed/349399"></param><param'>http://www.moddb.com/media/embed/349399"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><param name="allowfullscreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.moddb.com/media/embed/349399" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" allowfullscreen="true" allowscriptaccess="always" width="560" height="420"></embed></object><br /><a href="http://www.moddb.com/mods/vietnam-glory-obscured/videos/vgo-hydra-trailer">Videos & Audio - Vietnam Glory Obscured Mod for C&C Generals: Zero Hour - Mod DB</a>

Videos from Mod DB can be embed. I've had it set up for ages. The code is...

 

[mdb]video ID[/mdb]

 

The video ID can be found the in the embed code. Such as part I've highlighted in green.

 

<object width="560" height="420"><param name="movie" value="http://www.moddb.com/media/embed/349399"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><param name="allowfullscreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.moddb.com/media/embed/349399" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" allowfullscreen="true" allowscriptaccess="always" width="560" height="420"></embed></object><br /><a href="http://www.moddb.com/mods/vietnam-glory-obscured/videos/vgo-hydra-trailer">Videos & Audio - Vietnam Glory Obscured Mod for C&C Generals: Zero Hour - Mod DB</a>

So if use I this code....

 

[mdb]349399[/mdb]
