I will place it in a widget in my forum, and let you know.

I just put one in a widget here http://allfishworld.forumotion.com/portal?pid=6.
I don't think that you copied the whole code. Hello

Hi,

i want a small widget with a video on the side of the forums, not a large video, is it possible to fit a small size video widget to the side of the forums?

You can use this one http://www.mixpod.com/. Use the slim version, and it will fit in your side column. I really don't see the point though since the video will be tiny, and hard to see. Hello

hi thanks for the link, will give that a go.

You might have a point about the video being a tad small, but is it possible to make a whole page on the site just for video links then???

You can place the Youtube player into an html page, and create a popup window for that page. when your guest clicks on the link your player will popup in the center of your forum. I use this on my forum, and think it's great. You can also create a widget, and place it in a portal. Whats really cool about Forumotion is that they make it all really easy for anyone. Very Happy

Okay, when you add the code in the widget. Hit the Html button & then add it.

You can't make it full screen, but what you can do is use the original widget that I recommended. Choose the largest size option, and past the code into an html page. Create a popup window using the url of your html page, and the dimensions of your player. Place the link on your board in a widget if you like, and when you hit play or what ever you use, the player will popup over top of your board. Visit my site, and try this out to see if this is what your trying to do.

Hi Allfish, thanks for the info.

I understand all of that except the part where i create an html page? how do i go about doing that??

I like your site btw, especially the menu section when you hover your mouse of the sub-menu and you get that cool water effect, how did u do that?

Cheers

No problem, check this out http://help.forumotion.com/t53486-turning-your-forum-into-a-website. After you drop the widget in then go here http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex8/popwin.htm. Paste the code in your home page message, and the link that is provided in a widget. If you want it to be fancy then you can use a button instead of text for the link.
I get my free flash menus from here http://flashvortex.com/. As far as I know of you can't use these menus with the script that your working with though. Thanks for the compliment, and I hope it works well. If staff would like to write a tut to help others to do this feel free.
