BB Code to Insert Video in SMF Forum

I want to insert a video on a SMF forum. How to I do it?

I have tried using direct html codes on the SMF editor but it is only interpreted by the wysywyg editor as plain text and not parsed.

<OBJECT ID="MediaPlayer" WIDTH="250" HEIGHT="240" CLASSID="CLSID:22D6F312-B0F6-11D0-94AB-0080C74C7E95"
STANDBY="Loading Windows Media Player components..." TYPE="application/x-oleobject">
<PARAM NAME="FileName" VALUE="myvideo.wmv">
<PARAM name="autostart" VALUE="false">
<PARAM name="ShowControls" VALUE="true">
<param name="ShowStatusBar" value="false">
<PARAM name="ShowDisplay" VALUE="false">
<EMBED TYPE="application/x-mplayer2" SRC="myvideo.wmv" NAME="MediaPlayer"
WIDTH="250" HEIGHT="240" ShowControls="1" ShowStatusBar="0" ShowDisplay="0" autostart="0"> </EMBED>
</OBJECT>

On the SMF mod site, I have found AEVA Media. I tried installing it but it just not suit to my needs. It is also bloated that there are just too much bbcodes to memorize. The auto-embed method does not include a way wherein the administrator is able to add a custom site. Thus there is no choice left for me but to uninstall the nice mod.

I was on a search again and came to a SMF recognized bbcode [html]...[/html] but it id for administrators only. It is fine as posting videos will only be limited to this group.

The final code now will be

[html]
<OBJECT ID="MediaPlayer" WIDTH="250" HEIGHT="240" CLASSID="CLSID:22D6F312-B0F6-11D0-94AB-0080C74C7E95"
STANDBY="Loading Windows Media Player components..." TYPE="application/x-oleobject">
<PARAM NAME="FileName" VALUE="myvideo.wmv">
<PARAM name="autostart" VALUE="false">
<PARAM name="ShowControls" VALUE="true">
<param name="ShowStatusBar" value="false">
<PARAM name="ShowDisplay" VALUE="false">
<EMBED TYPE="application/x-mplayer2" SRC="myvideo.wmv" NAME="MediaPlayer"
WIDTH="250" HEIGHT="240" ShowControls="1" ShowStatusBar="0" ShowDisplay="0" autostart="0"> </EMBED>
</OBJECT>
[/html]

Just replace myvideo.wmv with the url of your video file.

The Devout Catholic Woman

April 24, 2014

Maria is a devout Catholic. She gets married and has 17 children. Then her husband dies. She remarries two weeks later, and has 22 children by her next husband. Then he dies. A while later, she dies. At the funeral, the priest looks skyward and says, "At last they're finally together." A guy sitting in the front row says, "Excuse me Father, but do you mean her and her first husband, or her and her second husband?" "I mean her legs!"
