A bunch of people have asked how to insert a video into a post that has a "Embedded" code.

For example the video found here - http://www.nbc.com/saturday-night-live/video/turlingtons-lower-back-tattoo-remover/1087962/


** This will only currently work on this forum if using FIREFOX due to the way Firefox renders the code.

1) Find the Embed code that is listed on the page.
2) You will need to extract a portion of the code to use it in your post.
3) Find the following code and copy it

Code:
http://widget.nbc.com/videos/nbcshort_at.swf?CXNID=1000004.10045NXC&widID=4727a250e66f9723&clipID=1087962&showID=61
4) Cick on the red Flash button f,
5) Insert the source URL extracted from the embed code
6) The Flash code will appear in your post and now look like this -

Code:
[flash=320,256]http://widget.nbc.com/videos/nbcshort_at.swf?CXNID=1000004.10045NXC&widID=4727a250e66f9723&clipID=1087962&showID=61[/flash]
7) Edit the 320,256 figures showing there to match the width and height figures given in the embed code.


8) You MUST manually add additional code at the end of the flash script to make the video playable in the post. This is how the entire code will look with the extra added. Please see the additional code shown below in bold.

Code:
[flash=384,283]http://widget.nbc.com/videos/nbcshort_at.swf?CXNID=1000004.10045NXC&widID=4727a250e66f9723&clipID=1087962&showID=61"   allowScriptAccess="always[/flash]

9) Preview your post (by hitting the "Preview" button) to check the video will show correctly.

10) As noted above - Currently this works in Firefox only. Future upgrades of the forum software will hopefully support other browsers

11) Hit OK and this is what you will see -


[flash=384,283]http://widget.nbc.com/videos/nbcshort_at.swf?CXNID=1000004.10045NXC&widID=4727a250e66f9723&clipID=1087962&showID=61" allowScriptAccess="always[/flash]

this only works if you're using a browser that supports those extra features. those of us using Chrome, well, you gotta fire up Exploder to make the post :eek:

Should work with Firefox and Explorer

Users of other browsers can post videos by entering the code directly in the Quick Reply box. In this case like this:

Code:
[flash=384,283]http://widget.nbc.com/videos/nbcshort_at.swf?CXNID=1000004.10045NXC&widID=4727a250e66f9723&clipID=1087962&showID=61[/flash]
This may also work in the normal posting editor for other browsers, but I haven't tested it.

This might not work currently. I can see the video but it does not play. I am going to close this thread for now until I can get further clarification from my support board for the forum software. Thanks all.

Reopened. To use this type of video you are going to have to use some additional code and the Firefox browser for now.

Adjusted the first post with the new instructions.


Also the video might take a little while sometimes to load.
