I'm trying to get better at making videos related to my project.  I watched some tutorials about how to "embed" videos into Simple Machines Forums, but haven't been able to make it work yet.  I can post links to videos, but haven't been able to embed them.

Is this even possible to do?

Sounds like a question for Bob, not me.  Give him a PM/mail if you'd like a quicker answer (than if you wait for him to notice your query here).

Thanks, Slim.  I think the issue has to do with whether or not, and to what extent, HTML code is allowed on the forum.

From my very limited understanding, I think there are "Basic" html codes which can be permitted, and which do not represent any type of security risk to the forum.

Somehow, more advanced html features can be associated with security (hacking) type problems.

I don't know who Bob is - what is his username here?

I am just checking to see if the "code" attribute works with your iFrame tag.

Steve, if it's any help, I could see the "movie" in the first post. Wayno

I'll look into it, but anybody else is welcome to explore also.

It looks like the Simple Machines forum setting on this site strips out the   attributes.

How this came about is I've been talking to a couple of guys who do really nice videos about documenting a rally car build.  "Project Syncro" on YouTube.  They are home-made videos, but really nice production quality.  I'm trying to improve my ability to do that kind of thing.

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC3AXjf0VHXDSdycjxSoDYgA

In any event, Ron Erickson and Kyle Yoest (the project Syncro guys) came down to my shop on Monday night to shoot video, generally B.S., and talk about car stuff. 

Video documentation seems to be on the rise, especially for things like "Build Diaries" that we do here.  I was asking Kyle about posting the "auto play", or "preview" type video links.  I think it's a lot better looking, and gets a better response if a video can be embedded right into a forum post, as opposed to having to go off-site to see the video.  Kyle seems to know his stuff pretty well, and described to me the html and "embed code" links necessary to do that kind of thing.

I figured I'd give it a try here, but couldn't get it to work.  My limited research and knowledge indicates that there are functions within the forum that have to be "turned on" in order to allow html codes to be utilized.

I'll see if I can find a link.

Here's what I found, which would allow BASIC html codes to be used, without creating security vulnerabilities:


But if SMF Forum Administrators still want to enable Basic HTML in Post.
It can be done from;

Admin Control Panel -> Post and Topics -> Bulletin Board Code tab and check "Enable basic HTML in posts".

Yabut . . .

Why'd it take so long to clear the course?

I turned basic html on.  The other option I found was to turn on Flash, which SMF said causes vulnerablities (so I didn't).
