The whole YouTube set up got me thinking. Rather than linking to the video downloads as we do now, how about having the option to embed the clips in the page? There's a new tag I've added: [ video ]http://url_of_file.flv[ /video ] which allows this.
This is just an experiement so please don't start filling up pages with these clips for the sake of it but I thought it might be quite a useful feature. I've used the freeware Riva FLV Encoder (http://rivavx.de/index.php?encoder&L=3) which converts from MPEG/AVI/WMV/QT for the clip above.
The window is currently fixed at 480x360 but it shouldn't be too difficult to make that poster-specific in the future.
Let me know what you think!
Has this been disabled for new threads? I can see your video in the first post of this thread, but I can't seem to post a new video (or quote yours). This worked sometime last week IIRC but now this....
Was it turned off for a reason or is something wrong?
