Youtube add-on / embed feature

On other forums when post a YouTube URL, the forum automagically turns it into an embedded video that shows a large thumbnail. On this forum, if I post a URL it just posts the text of the URL.

Is it possible to install an add-on to OFN / vbulletin so it will do what other forums do?

Click quote on my post above and you can see how I did it. more details are below.


to embed the video use [ YOUTUBE] URL code goes here [/YOUTUBE ]

then use the end of the URL of the video and paste as mentioned above.
you cannot use the normal url. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GQLsYldyPck you just use the code at the end. --- GQLsYldyPck ---


(you must remove the spaces between the bracket and Y and the bracket and E. I had to use the space for the code to be visible.)

Testing,



That works, but a PIA to computer dufuses like me.

On MBN, another VBulletin site I use, there is another small icon right next to the one used for pictures in the advanced reply section. It looks like a little film strip, you click it , add the link from you tube and your done!

Maybe someone who runs this site can ask the VBulletin tech/guy to add it?

BTW, the vid I posted is pretty good. He makes a sweet belt grinder that is pretty innovative and well thought out. IMO any way.
