Posting Videos

This documentation applies to ZetaBoards only.

To post videos on your ZetaBoards message board you'll need to use the BBCode Flash tag. It looks like this [flash]Video-url[/flash]. If you want to adjust the size of the video you can use the parameters of the flash tag to do so. See below for an example:

  • [flash=250,210]Video-url[/flash].

In this case, 250 represents the width of the video in pixels, and 210 represents the height of the video in pixels. This isn't required, however.

The board owner has the option of not allowing the use of the Flash tag, so this will only work on boards where the Flash tag is allowed.

Video Hosts

Video hosting sites are popping up every day. We've posted directions for using some of the more popular ones. If you have a site that isn't on this list, try using one of these methods as many sites operate similarly to the ones covered here. If that doesn't work, open a support ticket or visit our support board to ask how to post a specific video.

YouTube

YouTube videos work directly with the flash BBCode tag. Just take the URL from the video's page and post it inside the tag. To post this video http://www.youtube.com/v/z7SeHqxOVYc just follow the example.

Example:

MegaVideo

MegaVideo uses a url structure like this when you you're viewing the video on their site - http://www.megavideo.com/?v=RMB8KJY8

However in order to post a video on you board you need to use the URL that is part of their “Embed” code. The Embed code can be found on the right side of the page when you're viewing the video on MegaVideo's site. You don't need any of the other values just the URL. Place it in the flash BBCode tags and you'll be able to post the video.

Example:

Veoh

Veoh is very similar to Megavideo. To post this video http://www.veoh.com/videos/v70017919aYsqTaq you need to use the “Embed” code found on the bottom right of their video page. Again, leave out the other information and just take the full URL. Place it in the flash BBCode tags and the video will be posted.

Example:

Dailymotion

For Dailymotion videos, you'll again need the embed link. However rather than just the URL, you'll need to copy the section called “embed src”. It should include a url as well something that looks like “type=“application/x-shockwave-flash”. So to post this video http://www.dailymotion.com/cluster/sport/hd/video/x5173p_valparkfreestylehd_sport follow what is posted in the example.
