Default Question about embedding...

Hi Tim.

Is there any way to allow embedding of video and/or audio in posts?

Thanks in advance.

I know you can embed a link to a video/audio file, Mags... I've done it a few times myself. Would that do?

I've been trying to post pics from flickr using the [img]url[/img] trick but it's only showing the url and not the picture, is there a problem with it?

String:

I use Photobucket and wouldn't know what to do about a Flickr account.

Does anyone else use Flickr and could they please help String out ?

Thank you.

Hi String.

Here's the step my step:

1) Go to the picture you want to post. Select the "show all sizes" link.

2) Pick what size you want to use, there will be two text boxes below--one with a long piece of html code (ignore this one) and one that says "grab the photo's URL". You want to select the url in that box (it'll look like this : http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2511/...42772d115c.jpg )

That's the link you put in the the image box here on the forums:



Hope that helps...

Hi String. Can you post the link to the pic you're trying to embed?
