I use a plugin to do this for me. I did get it from mybboard forum. Now this is a 1.2 plugin but works fine for 1.4. It can actually play .swf .flv and .mp3 which is cool. Comes with its own player etc. I find it great as i do loads of flash work and like to post them on the forum.
Now i did a quick search and did not see it there at my mybboard but i know its there somewhere in the old plugins. So yea just look through the old 1.2 plugins and you will find it.


*UPDATE*

Not the plugin im using but it will do the job.

Its like 12 different video types also. Not bad actually. 1.4 compatible.

thx for the info actually I installed this plugin 2 days ago and it didn't play .swf file thats why I made a request here.

Do you want them to play from attachments? Or from a site? It would be cool from attachments imho for swf's to play.

And who do you want to be able to embed swf's? Everyone?


RE: Embed flash video - sadiqsaad - Sep 27, 2008

Playing from attachments is a nice idea, but as of now I want to play from a site. I want this feature so that I can embed some free networking tutorials on my forum.

Not sure about who should be able to embed it. I am sure you have something in your mind. Is it going to be something different if only a selected group members are able to post as compared to everyone?


RE: Embed flash video - DAMINK - Sep 27, 2008

I play from my site because i some times like to post up adult content and there is no other place to host it. Also i make my own flash presentations on occasion and like to post them on my forum to discuss them. Also the plugin i use can play .mp3 also which i really find cool as i like to post up music from time to time. Its actually one of my most used plugins actually.


RE: Embed flash video - sadiqsaad - Sep 27, 2008

man if you can play .swf files then tell.


RE: Embed flash video - DAMINK - Sep 27, 2008

I am not sure if im allowed to do it but i will try pack it up and post it here. I think its just the player and the plugin so should be simple. I will test it on another site. So give me 20 min.
Yes it does play .swf .flv and .mp3

I just tested it on another forum and it works. Now its just 2 files. The player which goes in the root directory and the plugin which goes in inc/plugins.
Then activate as usual. Then you can play .swf .flv and .mp3 with the
Code:
[flv] [/flv] tag

[attachment=845]

If im not allowed to do this then sorry. Just trying to help out.
