Some more news:
We've added a Liftlines embed code to SkiTube videos, making it nearly brainless to embed a SkiTube video into these Liftlines user forums. This will work for any videos hosted by our own SkiMovies.com server. Externally-sourced videos, such as those accessed from YouTube or other providers as explained below, will need to continue to use the "video" BBCode.
As hinted at above, SkiTube also gives you the option to share videos from YouTube and many other popular video hosting sites, including Google Video, Daily Motion, Break.com, MetaCafe, 5min.com, Guba, Photobucket and more! When accessing our [url]Submit video[/url] page, instead of uploading a video file from your hard drive, simply click the radio button next to "External URL" in the submission form. Then input the URL of the YouTube video there as well. Note that this is the URL of the video itself, not the page that the video is hosted on. It's usually an .flv or .swf file that you can get from the "Embed Code" of the video that may be viewed via a "Share" option for the video, and typically follows the "<embed src=" portion of that code, possibly with a bunch of other parameters included as well. For example, within YouTube's embed code the URL looks like this: http://www.youtube.com/v/1JNaIysC-tU&hl=en&fs=1
Examples of valid file URLs from some other popular video hosting sites are as follows:
- Code: Select all
