Calling all YouTube Tutorials! - Ned Scott - 2012-02-06 05:33

Calling all YouTube tutorials! The XBMC Wiki now supports embedded youtube videos. There's a ton of great videos out there, so now we just need help collecting links and sorting them out! Post your favorite help videos, or make one yourself!

If anyone wants to go and embed a video on the wiki, just use the tag:

Code:
{{youtube|ID}}

where ID = the ID portion of the YouTube url.

If you have some good video links, but are not sure where to put them, then just post the URL in this thread!

Here's an example: http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=Raspberry_Pi

The tag is {{YouTube|4NR57ELY28s}} and the URL it came from is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4NR57ELY28s

Besides the one showing the spitting and roasting of Pokemon look-alike avatars Laugh, this would be a favourite and a huge sigh of relief for those trying to help others here,

Sorry I took the easy way out adding the link here...

It's all good. It's probably best that they get collected here first and see what we have and where we want to go with it. Too many videos could be a problem, or maybe certain videos are more fitting for certain topics, etc.

Makes good sense. The one posted above shows how to copy the log to pastebin as well, and it does get repetitive explaining how.

How about the same for the forum?

Ability to embed YouTube videos in forum post?

Not really my area, but I assume anything like that would be after we move to new forum software (something that's been planned for a while, but just needs some time to hammer out).

Here's two I found that weren't too bad, but I'm realizing that for general XBMC stuff we have almost nothing that reflects XBMC v11:

Still, there should be tons of stuff out there for more specific things that aren't outdated, like adding media, sharing files on specific operating systems, videos for media managers, videos showing off skins, videos showing off add-ons, etc.

Also, it should go without saying, but we can't use the videos that also tell people how to set up icefilms..

Scraping and naming conventions seem to be repeat offenders if someone has a vidcam....


- Ned Scott - 2012-02-09 02:44

We can also use non-instructional videos, such as videos that simply show off skins or add-ons.

great idea. Youtube videos really helped me in building my xbmc pc and configuring it...


- Ned Scott - 2012-02-12 10:22

not sure where to throw this one, but we do get a lot of "how do I share files over the internet" posts:

Seems the forums also have a youtube embedding feature (with other sites as well). Just check out the TV icon just above the posting text box.

Thats one of mine, happy for it to be linked to in the wiki. Might want to contact the authors of clips before embedding them in the wiki as not everyone may be happy with that.
