What's wrong with a link?

wtf everyone say no for, i dont see how this is a bad idea in any shape or from

(yes mad)

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.

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:
funmansion.com/pos…071

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

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?
