Video Embedding

Post by TIrwin24 » Wed Apr 15, 2015 10:44 am

Hey guys,

I've had some issues trying to embed different videos into posts.

Currently, it'll only show up as a link if you use the "youtube", "url" or simply copy/paste the link.

Any suggestions?

Remove the "s" on the https and it should embed.

This should be fixed now and https for youtube should work fine.

Additionally I've added a new type of video embed that I think might be nice for our recruiting threads, hudl highlight video embedding. You should see a "hudl_video" tag option when posting now. The sytanx is pretty simple:

Code: Select all

[hudl_video]http://www.hudl.com/athlete/2997658/highlights/319262389/v2[/hudl_video]
would net you this in a thread:



Let me know if anyone sees any problems with this.
