Youtube option anybody?

Postby Ajit » Wed Sep 03, 2008 2:33 am

I've seen this in other forums, but this one doesn't have it. What about a youtube option for text? You know, you have the video appear on your comment usually done by this code:
[youtube]Here is the youtube video[/youtube][/code]
...or something like that. So, yeah. How's about it? ^-^

Well, I had a little fight with gimper about it (i'm the one against. I don't mind it, though it's just annoying) like lamaz1928 said if everyone happens to abuse it (as in adding 3 embed videos to the post) then the page would become laggy

I'll bring this to Gimper later
