#6
A big NO harvie.....
#7
wtf everyone say no for, i dont see how this is a bad idea in any shape or from

(yes mad)
#8
It would mean pages with them posted on would take longer to load.

So personally I agree with the others that it'd be a bad idea.

I'm not sure entirely how the embedding works, I believe until you actually click it the video won't be loaded.

I believe your right.

HUKD is a family website though - and anything put on here needs to be suitable for all. Monitoring these as well as everything else will create a lot more work I guess

Can't really think of how it would add to the site or how it moves the forum ">>> forward" as the OP puts it - also can't see how it would stop rick-rolling etc. Unless there is are some more benefits that I've missed, I think I'd vote no also, just on the grounds it might lead to spam/porn/copyright issues etc.
#12
To be honest I think links are fine here, if they're embedded you can't tell what's in them without playing them but if it's a link you can read the description and see if you want to watch it or not.

Does the OP have a link to another forum that has already adopted this, so that people can see it in action? I can't think of any off the top of my head, although I know what you mean and it's quite a nice feature.

Quick google turned this up:

Doesn't look like rick rolling, etc could be stopped as no info pops up about the video, just a play button. To get the info you would have to go to the youtube page itself.

It'd be really obvious if it was a rick roll or not, though. :) You'd see good old Mr Astley in the background.

Not before I'd started playing it, gone insane and thrown the laptop out the window to make it stop :p

The whole rick-rolling thing is altogether different and a non-issue here though as links would still be enabled and things such as tinyurl exist... (although I'm sure several people will happily edit a video to start out like something else then burst into rick soon enough...)

I think it depends on how open the mod is, and if it allow videos only from the main youtube site. I assume it would only do this because, it needs to generate the code for the applet.
I would hate to get more animated videos of bums, etc popping up everywhere (and even worse...).

:giggle: Bums in what context? Have I missed something?
