I would set it up like every new user needs a specific amount of posts to send PMs bout if you bought IP.Board this restriction is gone, cause I don't think that somebody would buy a license for sending Spam.
I've seen a feature like this at another forum, a little dicription how it works.
You write a post which looks like this (using code so everything shows up as I type it) :
What ever you want to write here: ?do=embed' frameborder='0' data-embedContent>
Then with IP.Board the result would be something like this:
With the auto replacer I've seen it would be something like this
This is for internal Links only.
What do you think about this idea?
Would it be possible?
For the majority of the videos you are right, but what about videos you could not upload to youtube or what ever due to copyrights? Encoding is a nice to have feature but for me it's not necessary, cause I only want to host the videos I couldn't upload anywhere else. So I never had the target to do what you described. The video system you linked to is OK, but I'm still missing some features, such as playlists and it would be cool to retrieve the video description+tags of the video pages.
Are you talking about something like this? http://www.vbtube.com/Community (another link: http://www.vbtube.com/BuyNow )
I would like to see the gallery extended, so I can combine videos from various sources (local, youtube ...) and pictures together in albums and maybe play lists. There should be an option to chose whether I like my videos converted or just stored as it is done in the gallery now.
If there is an option to decide, if I want to have this feature or not I could decide it on my own. In my view a Mod would be a bad thing in this way cause I would see problems with updates in the feature.
