Is there anyway to play video from photobucket on this forum without redirecting to photobucket. I've used the 'embed' code successfully on another forum but it doesn't seem to work here.

To use:

1. Find video on Photobucket
2. On the video's page under the Share This Video section, copy the code found in the HTML code slot.
3. Paste that (very long) piece of code into your AutoBody101.com post.
4. Highlight the text you just pasted and click the photobucket button above the post editor, or put the [photobucketvideo] and [ /photobucketvideo] tags around your text, manually.

Example (result is the video embed you see at the top of this post):

Code: Select all
[photobucketvideo]<a href="http://media.photobucket.com/video/funny%20videos/Claudiagrobanite/funny%20videos/funnycats.mp4?o=15" target="_blank"><embed width="600" height="361" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowFullscreen="true" allowNetworking="all" wmode="transparent" src="http://static.photobucket.com/player.swf" flashvars="file=http%3A%2F%2Fvid2.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fy14%2FClaudiagrobanite%2Ffunny%2520videos%2Ffunnycats.mp4"></a>[/photobucketvideo]
