[MyCode] Youtu.be shortlink
#1
before anything else MyBB 1.6s video embed code looks like this
Code:
[video=youtube] ** youtube long link here ** [/video]
when used with shortlinks ( youtu.be )
our result:




url differences:
Quote:long link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y8s5G0nSvco
short link: (new) http://youtu.be/Y8s5G0nSvco
( short link hd also available )

you can also modify the shortlink by adding "/watch?v=" in between the
Code:
youtu.be(add it here)vidID

below is an example of a modified short link
Code:
http://youtu.be/watch?v=Y8s5G0nSvco

also the current video embed code for youtube in MyBB 1.6s will work with the modified short link

see here: post #6 by wethegreenpeople

view video embed code for the link above click here <-- please do not click submit after viewing [Image: uOQp8.gif]

modified short link will work regardless if there is an &xxx after the vidID
but having modifiedShorLink&xxx may NOT WORK all the time.

Warning:
Do not modify short links by adding 'www' right after the 'http' protocol
if you do this, you will be redirected to Google's 404 page.




## Setup for Youtu.be shortlink MyCode ##
