Embed YouTube Videos?
      #269173 - 10/21/09 07:34 PM

Hey Boss--

Why can't we embed YouTube videos on AVSIG? It's the latest rage.

Mike would have to enable HTML code for it to work, I think. I don't know if UBB code supports embedding videos.

John: There are risks in allowing HTML code to run in the forum messsages. Is there a significant advantage in embedding a YouTube video vs. just posting the direct link?

To my mind, no. Embedding video means that the page will load slower, as it will also load the video player. For those using dial-up, it will kill them. I also suspect that Bob Dubner does not have the time to write code that will allow Tapcis to run on an HTML-based BBS. I suspect that there is not a small number of long-time `Ratz using Bob's TapUBB program.

We'll survive without embedded video.

I don't use TAP-anything, but I agree with you about the unnecessariness (?) of embedded video.

I, for one, don't favor risky HTML code in forum messages. Neither do I favor causing problems for the folks that still live in the DOS world.

So forget I mentioned it, but thanks for responding.

I don't see an advantage in embedding a video in this forum. To me, the only advantages to embedding a video are to make it an actual part of a website, helping the "brand" of the site, and helping to keep the visitor on the site. Those factors aren't relevant here.
