Embedding videos and photos

Recommended Posts

Just a helpful note on how to do this on the new forum.

Youtube videos:  Click the share button on the video you want to post.  Copy the link that appears automatically.  Post this link directly into the body of your post.  No need to mess with the "s" in the url.

Photos:  Looks like there are multiple ways.  BBCode link can be posted into body of post and the image will appear.  You can also grab the URL of a picture, click the "Insert other media" button at the bottom right of your post/reply and click on "insert image from URL".  Paste said URL and you are good to go.

Can you upload off your phone? An option added for that would be nice.

I haven't tried to mess with it yet.  I guess when tapa gets going, there is always that.  But I always used Imgur for my non photo stuff and flickr for my "serious" photos.

There’s also an “insert existing attachment” but doesn’t show anything in there. Guessing this will be useful for Phlegm when posting the same shit over and over.

Yeah if it doesn't embed within a few seconds, don't bother submitting the post. Generally it is a good idea to strip a lot of the god awful query parameters you sometimes get (usually in tweet URLs) if you know how and can.

New site software seems to be easier to use for embedded media and some other things.  With customization this could be an upgrade.

Couple that with losing a few posters and it is definitely an upgrayed
