Ever wonder how to add a movie to your post?
Ever wonder if it can be done?
Ok, now you can figure out, it can be done here. But HOW????
I'm going to show you. :) It's quite simple.

First, you need to find the movie you want to embed. I'm going to use a youtube movie for this example. I'm kinda proud of it becouse it's an add for our local high school made by the students. :)

To embed a movie, click the "flash" button. It will look like this:
[ flash=][ /flash]
Now, you are going to have to set the screen size and url to the movie where the = sign is.

For youtube, this is all simple. Just look at their embed tag. It looks like this:
<object width="425" height="350"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/gFQeLbdUqDc"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/gFQeLbdUqDc" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="350"></embed></object>

So, to use this, just take a few things from all that mess.

[ flash=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/v/gFQeLbdUqDc[/ flash]

That's all you need. It will now look like this:

You can do this with google movies too.
Please be careful with movie embeds tho. They take a while to load and can slow down the load time for the forum.
Hope this answers at least one question you may/may not have had. :D

Ok, flash bbcode now only embeds a flash movie. To embed a youTube movie,
Start a new thread (or reply to one already started about the movie topic)
Look at the top of the page where all the bb code shortcuts are and find youtube. Then click it. It will look like this: (without the spaces) [ youtube][/youtube ]

In between where the cursor is, just add the movie number. (it will look something like this: oRVHXv8p0F8)
So now your youtube code should look like this:

[ youtube]oRVHXv8p0F8[/youtube ]

And you will be able to show your youtube movie.
