    By now you've noticed that your YouTube, Revver maybe MySpace videos automatically embed in your posts just by posting the link. This is thanks to a nifty modification created by a coder known only to vBulletin administrators as The Geek.

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rPc5sBmMsqw&feature=rec-fresh"]YouTube - destiny's child on sesame street[/ame]

    What you may not have know, is that the modification was designed to handle other sites as well. The genius of the modification though, was that The Geek designed it so that he didn't have to continually update it everytime users wanted a new supported site, or everytime an older supported site needed updating. He made it to where, with a little knowledge of Regular Expressions, anyone could create support for a given site if they new what they where doing and then share it with other vB users.

    Long story short, it kind of fell to me to maintain and expand the supported definitions for this modification. I've been doing this for a while now, though you may not have noticed if you don't have access to the development area here. But a lot more sites will auto embed. A LOT more sites! And not just video, but audio, images, games and more. How many exactly? Well, here's a complete list of site definitions:

    I've worked really hard on these over the last year, so I'd appreciate if you continued to utilize the system. Sometimes sites stop working, or change their name or embed code, and I have to update. It's a continual process, but your use of it here will help me maintain the product and keep it in top working condition.

    Hope you enjoy the product and I'll post some examples of what the mod can do here in a few.
