Hello Folks--
I realize that this is covered in the FAQ, but though I've read over that stuff and postings, I can't find the clear solution.

I want to post video from 'PhotoBucket'. I have been successful in doing this across several other forum software, but can't see to get it done using phpBB.

Normally the following works, when all else fails. Neither this or using [flash] [/flash] does the trick.

[doHTML]<embed width="600" height="361" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowFullscreen="true" allowNetworking="all" wmode="transparent" src="https://static.photobucket.com/player.swf?file=https://vid645.photobucket.com/albums/uu171/AlphaSetter/Feb17-2010/P2160049.flv">[/doHTML]

Any suggestions?

Thanks--

Hi!
Use:
Code:
[flash(600,361)]http://static.photobucket.com/player.swf?file=http://vid645.photobucket.com/albums/uu171/AlphaSetter/Feb17-2010/P2160049.flv[/flash]
Or:
Code:
[flash(600,361)]http://vid645.photobucket.com/albums/uu171/AlphaSetter/Feb17-2010/P2160049.flv[/flash]

Works ?!

Well I'll be boiled in spit--how'd he do that?

Plan A worked.

did you copy/paste that from the site and if so, what the heck did you use.
I tried the flash pull and every other as well as manually coding as i showed.

OK--I figured out that 'work around.
Thank you very much, but why doesn't one of the provided scripts from Photo Bucket work, as is?
Its going to be difficult for some less than 'code savvy' members of our forum to use a work around.

Please advise.

Thanks folks.

Hi again!

Sorry for the delay!

The second code works perfectly!

Learn More:

You've got two methods to insert a flash animation in your message.

  • First
    method with the flash BBcode:
    Code:
    [flash(200,40)]http://illiweb.com/fa/i/forumotion.swf[/flash]
    Result:

  • Second
    method with the embed-flash BBcode :
    Code:
    [embed-flash(200,40)]http://illiweb.com/fa/i/forumotion.swf[/embed-flash]
    Result:

Don't
forget to indicate the flash animation's width and the height between
the brackets of the used BBcode tag.
