Do the GDS boards allow for embedding Videos?

Would someone care to provide an example? I too would love to know how to do it right, as I have a dynasty in mind that specifically is very music-related/inspired and could use a boost from Youtube.

 

 

If you go to youtube there is a little button below the video that says embed. You can click that and get a code so the video shows up. I'm not sure how ShadowedFlames tweaks it to just show the play buttons, but I'm sure he can fill you in on that.

I think Remi got it from me, and I got it from FINisher...

 

You take the Youtube embed link and just alter the image size...

 

So this...

 

< object width ="480" height="385"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x-64CaD8GXw?fs=1&hl=en_US"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x-64CaD8GXw?fs=1&hl=en_US" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="480" height="385"></embed>< / object >

 

...becomes this...

 

< object width="27" height="25"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x-64CaD8GXw?fs=1&hl=en_US"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x-64CaD8GXw?fs=1&hl=en_US" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="27" height="25"></embed> < / object >

 

Minus the spaces... It won't let me do an actual embed here, so either it doesn't work in the Dog Pound or they've changed things...

Hate to necro bump...But why does this no longer show the play/pause button and instead the full screen area?

 

I think its because youtube changed their embed code..

If you can follow the directions I gave Jingo here you should able to have it show just the play button. That is the only way I have figured out to do it, although somebody might have an easier way.
