Video Embed

A modification for SMF 2.1 that expands support for embedding videos from video hosting sites.

Supported video hosting sites include:
  • YouTube
  • Vimeo
  • Locally hosted video and audio files

BBCodes are added for each of the supported video hosting sites.

SMF's default YouTube editor toolbar button is replaced with a generic Video button that will automatically detect video URLs from the supported video hosting sites.

Future versions of this modification may expand support to include other video hosting sites, but I promise you nothing.

This modification is also backward compatible with BBCodes created by several older YouTube and Vimeo modifications. So if you previously used a modification to add YouTube or Vimeo support to SMF 2.0.x and then upgraded your forum to SMF 2.1.x, this modification might fix any broken embed codes in your pre-existing posts. (Note: BBCode parameters from older modifications may be ignored.)


There are no settings. Install to enable, uninstall to disable.
