Video Embed & Auto-Links

This feature has been available on the community forum here at the Drummer Cafe for some time now, but I've recently modified/upgraded/expanded the feature.

I've made it EXTREMELY easy to embed a video on the forum. All you have to do is post the URL to the video you would like to appear ... and the forum software does the rest. Just about any video hosting service will work (eg. YouTube, Facebook, etc.).

When you post the link within your post, you don't need to add any additional code; just the raw URL is all you need. The forum will automatically center the video and use the highest resolution video version available (eg. HD).

You might want to hit the PREVIEW button before you hit POST, just to make sure the video shows up for you. If the video format or hosting service is not supported, the forum will just go ahead and display the URL like normal.

Enjoy!
