Embed code uses the < iframe > element ... the forum software does not have any facility to insert any kind of code (whether simple elements like p, div, span etc. or complex things like iframe.

The embed code would be ...
Code: Select all
<iframe width="560" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/ncfKeUJsK4Y" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>


However, you could use the url for it e.g. http://youtu.be/ncfKeUJsK4Y

Hi Gaev,

I take my time to think an answer... :lol:

Take a look of this:

http://ldds.foroactivo.com/t4942-manzanas-jodidas

you can see at the bottom of the page "phpBB", same forum engine of this...

Perhaps it would be a settings tip only...

Greetings from a cold Buenos Aires,

Hi all,

I don't know very much about phpbb forums.. as I remember, youtube feature not found in the core phpbb forum, but administrators can add some code to create a custom BBCode tag like [youtube] .... [/youtube]

Maybe its not very necessary here or there is some security impact of it .. I don't know...

You can see such necessary codes for embedding youtube here:
Code: Select all

Added "youtube" to the list of tags in the forum editor.

[youtube]0M7ibPk37_U?[/youtube]

Followed instructions on phpBB website, but of course it doesn't work :cry: .

PROBLEM FIXED (see below)...

Hello,

Probably you do not use the appropiate video ID.

In a URL like this:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bo1uygwCnrE

The video ID is: "Bo1uygwCnrE" without the quotes.

As you can see the tag work like expected. Again:
