Solved Video Intro for guests

Post by Loverdove on April 3rd 2015, 12:21 pm

First topic message reminder :

Seems like I have great ideas, but I just don't know how to implicate them.

I have a widget with a embedded youtube video of my own creation; a trailer for my forum. Is there a way to make it so that the video pops up in the center of the forum whenever a guest visits? If not, I'm open to suggestions so I can get this video visible and played for at least any guest that might come and check us out.

Can you post the contents of your stylesheet here ? I noticed that the style rule I gave you still isn't affecting the video.

Also, the class .video_poster can only work if the embedded video has that specific classname. For example :
Code:
<embed class="video_poster" />

So, I don't think those rules will work considering that you're using the bbcode.

you need to use the flash button instead of youtube button to generate your bbcode, because there you can set width and height for the video, but you need to put the embed url with the /v/ part like so for it to show up Wink
Code:
[flash(220,150)]http://www.youtube.com/v/KJfmIjgljU4[/flash]

So what you're telling me is that there really isn't a way to get the video larger? LOL

of course, but you need to use the [flash] bbcode to embed the video, just put this code into login popup, and adjust the numbers to your liking (first is width, second is height)
Code:
[flash(500,350)]http://www.dailymotion.com/swf/x2lxm45[/flash]
