    What does everyone think about having an option to post a single YouTube video in your profile? It would go in it's own box in the right side.

    Does anyone want this, or should I not worry about installing this feature. This is your forum. Let me know what you want.

    As long as it doesn't automatically play like myspace, I'm all for it. Nothing worse than when I am at work and all of the sudden some video starts blaring when I am wasting time looking at random hot chicks myspace pages. :lol:

    OK you can now add myspace videos to your profile.

    Set it up by entering the youtube code and title for the video you want here: USERCP >> Edit Your Details >> Additional Information

    Right now users can set the video to autostart, but I'm going to remove that feature.

    It shows up in your profile on the right side below your friends.

    Something wasn't right with your youtube code.

    The youtube code is the part of the URL of the video you want that is after the "watch?v="

    For example, for the video at

    http: // youtube . com / watch?v=vAoWIKUcw5g

    you would only put the vAoWIKUcw5g part in as the youtube code.

    I use firefox 3.0. Do you guys see my vid in my profile just below my friends? They are small looking vids.

    Good question about possibly needing a plug in though. I would not know what one you guys would need though.

    ADDED EDIT: When I checked using my I.E. I still see the vid in LV Bolt Fans profile. This is odd.

    I see it.


    No, you should not need a plugin. If you can see any youtube video, you should be able to see this.


    It is possible that there is a permissions problem. I only say that because TT is a mod, I am an admin and we can see it, but others can't. I will do some checking on this right now.

    OK I found the problem. This add-on does it's permissions in a funky way and you have to actually enter the usergroups that are allowed to see the videos into the code.

    Bottom line - It's fixed now. Be sure to let me know if yoy have any further problems with this feature. My apologies for not getting this correct the when I first set it up.
