Now you can embed video and music from something like 200 sites.

To embed a video just paste the link straight into your post and it should work, I have set the video to automatically be in the centre too so now all new videos should line up nicer.

Ahhh. It's flash. 3rd one still not there for me.

The only issue I see is that the "link" below the first video is the entire URL, rather than a properly titled one.

Yes that is a little annoying, but I think it's happening because it cant find a title for the video so it defaults to the URL, and I noticed that I cant find a title for that video either.

I've noticed that some of the videos are displaying a scrollbar down the right hand side of the page.

To get over it I would put a blank line or two under the video, or type something under it.

I will have a look at the code at some point and try to fix it.

Data

I've fixed the scrollbar down the side of the videos with a small tweak to the CSS, if you still see the scrollbar try pressing F5 on your keyboard.

That works great, Data! And I loved the video you used to test it. Where's Zaphod when you need him?

Absolutely loved that Vid. Does make you feel real insignificant doesn't it. Just goes to show though, size does matter. Or is it, matter does size. :scratch-head:
It WILL be fine !...

I dunno. . . the band, Creed said "Nothing else matters!"
Does that include size too? :scratch-head: :hmm:

let me clear this size issue up, size does matter. don't believe anything else, anything else is just an excuse or means to make one feel like :banana:.
