Youtube Plugin?

Post by vud1 »

Hi I am new in this forum and I have missed being able to embed videos in messages.

I think it facilitates usability to be able to see the multimedia content embedded in the posts instead of having to use an external link.

Thanks!

:)

That makes a lot of sense! I wouldn't want to allow YouTube to be able to track users of this forum unless they explicitly agree to that. That can be achieved with a bit of javascript that shows a 'there is a youtube video here' placeholder by default, and allows you to either open the URL yourself or enable loading the inline previews going forward.

Do you know of any phpBB plugin that does it like that?

I dont know any plugin that allows that.

But.. If you don't want Youtube to trace you, you may probably be interested in use the private mode of your browser (with disabled cockies option).

Sure, but I also don't want to help Youtube trace others (unless they agree to it)
