YouTube video with thumbnail in BBC code

Postby burnouts&rotorblades » Sat Oct 05, 2019 1:49 pm

I'm having trouble posting youtube videos using BBC code so the link shows as a thumbnail. I tried to use the [media][/media] or [youtube][/youtube] bbc code so I can embed youtube videos into a forum thread, but neither work. I've tried to use the HTML, the embedded code generated by YouTube. . . and so on. The best I could muster is a hyperlink.

After a bit of reading I found that each parcel of code has to be enabled by the forum admin or HMFIC. So, I sent a message to ColinOpseth on September 23rd at 8:35pm. His last checkin was September 23rd at 8:55pm. I haven't heard from him about this either way, so I'm assuming it's not something he takes car of. I figured I'd put my question out here to everyone in the hopes it would help someone else looking to do the same.

Can someone tell me how to, or make it possible for me to post a YouTube video as an embedded thumbnail instead of just a hyperlink?

That's weird I'm using forums for 25 years and the first post I did should have work and posted a thumbnail and you're right the second one only simply creates a hyperlink.
Must be in the control panel of the administrator.

That's what I'm saying. I read there is a setting the Admins can change that allows this code to be used. However, I have not been able to get a hold of one to ask about it yet.
