Updated bbcode_video template with available HTML5 Players

Brought to you by BirdOPrey5

NEW- April 5, 2013- Updated Facebook to HTML5, flash player stopped working!

The template bbcode_video is the one that decides what embed code is used for the built in video embedding sites.

This template relies mostly on Flash- only YouTube was ever updated to HTML5 in the stock bbcode_video template of VB 4.2.0.

This new edit has HTML5 Players available for Vimeo and Dailymotion as well. It also has the code there that was to help IE6 compatibility removed as 4.2.0 officially dropped support for IE6 anyway.

I have also made some of the video screens larger where appropriate.

The benefits of HTML5 players is they will work on iPads, iPhones, and all current Android/mobile devices. Flash does not.

To use this simply copy the code below and paste it into your template bbcode_video, deleting what used to be there.

If you have any trouble simply "revert" the template back to the original.

Repeat the above for each style you have.

New bbcode_video template (Tested on 4.2.0):

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

The above has all known/available HTML5 players, but Flash players where HTML5 is not yet available.


Please "Mark as Installed" if you use this. :)
Donations always appreciated. :up:
Nominate MOTM if you LOVE it! ;)

No, you'd need additional code to handle such links. Look for the AME3 mod.

Updated today because Facebook Flash player has stopped working, breaking Facebook video embeds on all VB 4.x forums that have not been updated to the latest version, as you can do by using this template edit.
