Youtube custom BB code!

[ytube]{TEXT}[/ytube]

Code: Select all

<object width="480" height="295"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/{TEXT}"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/{TEXT}" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="480" height="295"></embed></object>

Then (in theory) [ytube]_2eiOCbU5RE[/ytube] - a la code at the end of the linky:
http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=_2eiOCbU5RE

Would drop the video straight into the forum.

Would that slow page loads a lot or at all. :?
I have heard of only one mistake that doesn’t have an explanation for a careful reader...with an open mind. (And, no, I’m not going to tell you what it is!) —KJA

I don't like every writer's style; for instance, I have never been able to get through Ursula LeGuin, China Mieville, or Iain Banks, all of whom are critical darlings. —KJA

I...had written a bunch of Star Wars and X-Files books...that proved not just that I'm a hack, but that I could write in somebody else's universe... —KJA

The one other board I visit that allows for YT embeds seems to load just as fast as Jacurutu or any other site. Not very scientific, I know, but it's all I gots ...

YT embedding would be cool, methinks.

We'll look to see if there is an option to set for actual loads or links. There probably is, but if not...

It'll slow the page loads the same way an image does. Once the initial image in the youtube video loads the video stops loading until you click play.
As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Hypatia approaches one.
