it appears as though it's not adding the line to include the bbcode_video.js

I see the line:
editor_tools_register_jslib("./mods/bbcode_video/bbcode_video.js");

but it doesn't seem to actually do it.

the make_bbcode_last_formatter.php hack doesn't solve the problem either
is the code tha registers the jslib running AFTER the HEAD_TAGS is used?

GREAT mod Maurice. Thanks. Installed and working beautiful. Any chance of supporting audio files such as wavs / aiffs / mp3s and other web video like Sorensons / H.264s? If you ever have time? Sure would be great for a forum like mine

:)

This is the BB Code Video mod, so no, wav aiff mp3 is not an option. That would be a different module. I have tried creating an MP3 module already, but the biggest problem was that the flash players that I tried do load the MP3 immediately and not when the user clicks the play button. So that spends bandwidth which is often not even used. I'll have to experiment a bit with javascript to create the player on the fly for that. There probably will be something, since my users post a lot of MP3's too.

For Sorensons and H.264 I'm not building in support. I am now only including web based services that offer video and a way to embed the video in other pages. The videos that are supported are all provided by some video website. But Sorensons and H.264 are (afaik) video formats, not video websites. So for those, some embedded player would have to be included in the video mod. If somebody else wants to add such a player / players to the video bbcode mod, then feel free to. I'm more than happy to accept patches for the mod.

Hi Maurice

I id find this nifty little app that seems like it might help. It's called Pageot

I have no trouble generating embed code. That is what that app does. And that is embed code for the quicktime plugin. I do not want those kinds of dependancies in the module, because I do not want to push people into installing quicktime plugins to view pages. The module should just work and that's guaranteed by using the Flash based players that video web sites use. Feel free to implement automatic quicktime embedding in a different mod.

Is there any chance of adding support for raw SWF files? I don't know too much about Flash myself, and don't know whether it is possible to specify a width to display at and let Flash work out the correctly scaled height itself?

Anyway, an example of the type of file it would be nice to embed is this quiz that one of my forum users made for my site: [www.cantonese.sheik.co.uk]

Thanks,

I don't like flash to be a [movie]..[/movie] type. For that, you'd better write something that can do [flash]..[/flash] instead.

Determining size is not really an option with flash I think, since it scales. You always have to tell the embedded flash player what size to use. I don't know if there are tools which can extract the size (maybe the recommended size is stored in the swf) from the raw data, before displaying. If yes, then that could be used.

I'm still having this problem? Anyone else? I'm about to just start turning off mods to see if one is causing the problem, but in case anyone has run into this and solved this I thought I'd save some time.
