I comment on this in your other thread about music and movies.
Do you mean adding videos and stuff from like youtube etc..

If so you do it by your video option at the top of your subject board options.
for that you would just click on the video icon,add the link to where the video is from like youtube daily motion or google, then set your dimensions you want.

Or you can enable your html that will allow you to add embed codes for videos and everything else that may be html/embed codes.

Admin panel>general>messages and emails>configuration

Scroll down to allow html,select yest and hit save.

No go back on to the forum and click on

Profile>profile preferences

scroll down to always allow html select yes and hit save.

Now you will be able to add any embed codes for vids,movies,games etc... Smile

Thanx you


when you go to start a topic you will see the little video icon next to your font color options,flash add link ,font size etc.

So you can do it that way, or just have your html enabled like i have said before.

See look this is how it would be done with the bbcode option/add video option like i have explained above.



in your options they will show as youtube tags, but once you send the post through they turn into flash tags.. strange... lol
Code:

to activate your portal you have to go to

Admin panel>modules>portal>activate>hit save

If you want to add a music player with your own uploaded music go to
http://www.podbean.com/

You just join/register witha free account, upload all the songs you want,create your play list then they will give you an embed code to be placed on your forum where ever you want it.

They have some other options for like auto play and shuffle etc.. as far as the players appearance options they do not realy have much on that, i think just green or black.. but it's one of the only free host i know that you can upload your own music to. so it's worth it for that.

you can also just do single songs to

Since there are two threads open for movie and music and the background question was solved. i will lock this thread and all other questions pertaining to video and music can continue in your other thread.
