How to embed video into post?


#1

Not sure where to ask this question, but I’m wondering how to embed a video (tutorial/screencast) directly into a forum post, rather than just a download link. Sorry, may be pretty ignorant question, but I’m not versed in such things.

This IS the correct category.

The Discourse forum engine has OneBox built-in. (But recently there has been some issues with the OneBox plugin and 3D Warehouse model links.)

Try posting the URL to the video file directly on a line by itself, with no spaces in front of the URL, and see if the OneBox plugin can render it correctly. [The space prefix is a “nifty” way of suppressing the OneBox’ing.]

(Do not attempt the post an HTML frame url. It will be stripped out.)

That did it for me. Thanks.
