youtube embedding

Postby Standardshifter » Sun Feb 15, 2009 1:25 pm

Added a button to embed youtube videos into a post, just copy and paste the full URL and it should work:



Enjoy!

Actually I do prefer the old way, where you click on a link and it opens.

Is there any way to click on the embedded thing and make it so that it opens in a new window without it starting to load in the old window?

I want to have it so that it doesn't load the video twice when I click on it to open.

I think this is a great addition. There have been so many instances in the past where it would have been really nice to have this feature. If you don't want to load or watch the video, don't click play.

That can be a problem, but it seems like the plugin used on this forum handles that issue gracefully. For me, they don't load with the page; the preview pic loads when it scrolls into view, and the video doesn't load until I play it.

Try double or triple clicking it. When I triple-click as soon as I see it, it opens the Youtube page in another tab and aborts any loading it's doing on the original tab.

It's not working. It still loads on the original page.

This sucks, now it's causing problems for people who want to watch the video?
