We have embedded video...sort of!
Well needless to say the subject of embedded video has been a hot topic over on the Infopop/Groupee/Eve message boards.
Many community admins (like myself) are impatient with the slow pace of including embedded video in the software. We understand the security risks, but it has been over a year since it was promised.
As a workaround, it seems that Community Admins (that would be me) have been granted the right to embed video. No other users have as yet, but hopefully that is coming.
There are some peculiarities about this workaround. One seems to be that the video clip must come first in the message, the second is that no regular links seem to work when there is an embedded video in a post.
So for now, I will go in and add the tags I need to whenever you post a YouTube URL. I will work backwards through Part 1 of this topic as well and edit old posts to permit embeds as time allows.
So, just keep posting your links and comments as you did before in this topic, and I will be checking it.
If you want me to embed video in another topic or forum, you will need to email mboards @ jackiefactory.com with a link to the topic that contains your link.
Enjoy! And hopefully soon you will be able to do this for yourselves.
