Other forums I visit have a feature that allows them to embed media links into posts, for example youtube videos or soundcloud players.

It makes threads that refer to music a whole lot more dynamic if someone can just embed a youtube vid directly on the post rather than just posting a link people have to open on a different window - and chances are that they probably won´t.

Would it be a huge thing to do? Surely ikonboard has plugins to do stuff like that :)

We've swapped the settings so that any links to youtube videos now show up embedded. Makes for some interesting formatting of some of the existing threads but see how you all find it!

So to embed a video, just use the usual [ url ] codes with the youtube link (or the http:// button in the editor) and it should show up within your post.
