What is the BBC code to post a video that's NOT on youTube? Or if there isn't a BBC code, what is the method you have to use? Talkin' about posting here on a2k, of course.

@MontereyJack,
You can't do that here. There used to be a way to embed Flash videos. I did that on several occasions before but since forgot how to do it. Either that other video sites have wised up and disabled live embedding of nonYouTube videos.

It also has a link to the A2K topic about it where Robert gave detailed technical instructions about how to embed flash videos (which I still don't quite understand or can't get to work right).


Here's the link to the topic, which can also be found in the above blog article:

Here's an even better and more detailed instruction for embedding the flash videos. It starts at this post and goes on a few:

@Butrflynet,
I remember that. I never mastered it. Should try again.

@ehBeth,
Neither have I. Tried many times, but never quite got the right flash file to work with, I guess.

@jespah,
Congratulations!


Okay, now write what you did in simple English rather than tech-speak.

@jespah,
Holy crap, I got it!

Instructions:
  1. Go to wherever the hell you've got flash you want to load
  2. Right-click that page and select view page source
  3. Ctrl-f to find the following term: .swf
  4. Copy that entire url into your clipboard, including the .swf part
  5. Note whatever it also says for height and width
  6. On A2K, type as follows: [flash]
  7. Then where it says flash, type a equals sign then the height # a comma and then the width #. DO NOT ADD ANY SPACES. YES, THIS GOES INSIDE THE BRACKETS, e. g. flash=600,920
  8. Then paste in the complete url
  9. Then type [/flash]
  10. Preview to make sure it works
  11. Hit reply and bask in your awesomeness

@jespah,
Okay, here's where I run into a problem. Go to this page. There are 6 instances of .swf files.

Which one do I select for the bbc code?

@Butrflynet,


Doesn't work; might need flashvars (which I admit is above my pay grade).
