This forum allows you to embed videos from 45 video sharing websites which allows you to watch the videos right here on the forum without having to click on the link to move to a different site. The number of video websites will increase in future. In this tutorial I'm going to show you the simple process of embedding these videos in your posts. FIRST RULE: Do NOT copy the embed HTML Code. In most cases URL should be used for embedding.
Start by going to the full-fledged post editor, which looks like this
This will appear when you make a new topic and when you click on the preview button on the "Quick Reply" Form at the bottom of every topic.
Now we need to click on the icon which looks like a video camera which is the last icon.
On clicking a pop-up will open. Be sure to allow ABT to display pop-ups in your browser settings.
A screen like the one below will appear.
Here you can click on the example drop-down box to see what video sharing website videos can be embedded. There is an example link shown below this box which shows the correct format of the link which can be embedded. The embedding will not work if your link format is different from the one shown.
Paste your link in the "Enter a link for BBvideo:"
box. You can choose the width and height of the video or leave it at default. Then click submit.
After you enter the link in the box and click submit, the code will appear like this in your post editor box. Note the "bbvideo" tags around the image. ALTERNATE METHOD
: If you find the popup method inconvenient, you can also embed the video by first pasting the link in the post editor box. Then highlight the link and click the camera icon which should insert the bbvideo tags.
Here is the embedded video for you to enjoy.
Leave your suggestions regarding any other websites you would like to add videos from and any other features of the forum.
