It's an option we're not going to go with. Embedding a video takes a lot of space.

It doesn't take much space, all you get is a few lines of code that opens a viewer on the user's computer. Other than the custom code, it's no different that embedding a photo from you own webstorage...doesn't load TRF at all. Now, there may be a reason not to generate custom code.

If this is the case, then I'm open to it.

So long as only a URL displays if I have the "Show Images (including attached images and images in code)"[/I] checkbox un-checked in my prefs.
I don't want to load up media wherever it may be stored, when browsing from the office, or over mobile, etc.

Right, all done. Unfortunately it's not possible to make it blockable via a User Option without rewriting half the forum software. If it does get way overused, we can always turn it off. I've added Vimeo support too, since *some* people use it...

Just take the video ID from whichever site, and insert it between the tags.
For example:

HTML:
[youtube]MdjID2osZ0A[/youtube]
Which goes to

And for Vimeo:

vimeo.com/2574885 goes to:

HTML:
[vimeo]2574885[/vimeo]
Which goes to...

[vimeo]2574885[/vimeo]

Enjoy,
Phil

Will this work wit hFlikr video also?

Sorry, I must've missed this.

No, it'll only work with YouTube or Vimeo at the moment. If there's a desperate need to add another site, I'll look into it, but those are currently the big 2.

It may be me, but I'm of the opinion that Vimeo is better. Yes, they do have an upload limit (a reasonable one), but their normal quality is just as good as YouTube's High Quality. Never mind the oppressive TOS and their reaction to any DMCA filing, even unlawful ones.
