Updated Youtube Widget
« on: February 27, 2014, 10:38:01 am »
I'm not sure whether this is editable by Omnimaga, or if it is used by the host, but I was wondering whether the Youtube widget could embed a link to the video's source at the bottom.  Some users may not have flash-compatible devices (or may not have admin access, such as on a public or school-provided device), and cannot view the video in Omnimaga.  I have HTML5 Youtube extensions installed, but the video's source is hidden.  :/  If you cannot do this, maybe you could add it in to the Forum Rules, or insert a form for the link in the embed widget?  Thanks!  ;D
My name is Josh and I a developer at Moonzean. I enjoy Radiohead, web development, Java, and cryptograms.
Spoiler For No Surprises, by Radiohead:
A heart that's full up like a landfill
A job that slowly kills you
Bruises that won't heal

You look so tired unhappy
Bring down the government
They don't, they don't speak for us

I'll take a quiet life
A handshake of carbon monoxide

And no alarms and no surprises
No alarms and no surprises
No alarms and no surprises
Silent, silent

This is my final fit
My final bellyache

With no alarms and no surprises
No alarms and no surprises
No alarms and no surprises please

Such a pretty house
And such a pretty garden

No alarms and no surprises
No alarms and no surprises
No alarms and no surprises please

You can always press Quote on that post to see the URL. But that would be a good idea.

YEah I agree. Actually the current Youtube thing is a premade mod, though, so the staff are probably gonna wait for the 2.0 upgrade in case they stop using it and use something else. Also another annoyance about that Youtube tag is the lack of support for multiple formats (eg some sites allow both http, https and also ID without a link at the same time)
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

The mod here doesn't support https but it does support http and plain ID.
I agree that the link should be more easily accessible though.
