To your profile, you can't, must be done by me. To posts, my signature has links explaining the several options.

Rui - is it possible to copy a video that's on facebook onto here?

I've tried to do it the same as copying a photo, but can't get it to work?

Hi Lisa,

It is possible, yes. It requires some changes to the code that you obtain from facebook. Start by viewing the video and then click Options and then choose the option to Embed (if it does not say Embed, it will say something similar). Copy the contents of the window that pops up and post it here and I will tell you how you can change it to have it display properly.

HTH

That won't work, Lisa. That's a static image. It will be something like this:

<iframe src="https://www.facebook.com/video/embed?video_id=10151366276727409" width="640" height="480" frameborder="0"></iframe>

I have just realized that some facebook videos on the Paris thread are not working. I will have to fix them and that will influence what will need to be done here to display them.

Hi Lisa,

I have fixed the facebook video display here. To make it work, all you need to do is to get all or part of the video embedding code, which looks similar to what I posted yesterday:

<iframe src="https://www.facebook.com/video/embed?video_id=10151366276727409" width="640" height="480" frameborder="0"></iframe>

Then use this inside some new [fb][/fb] tags:

[fb]<iframe src="https://www.facebook.com/video/embed?video_id=10151366276727409" width="640" height="480" frameborder="0"></iframe>[/fb]

In fact, all that's needed is the big number inside, so this will work as well:

[fb]10151366276727409[/fb]

In fact, any part that includes the big number inside, will work.

As I said yesterday, you can obtain this embedding code by clicking options when you are viewing the video, on facebook. Click options and then whatever is named similar to embed and it will work.

I'll probably add a button to add the tags automatically, later on, but for now doing this manually will work. I have fixed all Paris videos, that stopped working because of facebook changes, using these new tags.

You can just post the code here, again, and I'll show how to make it display properly.

sorry for being dense!

I may have to come back to this later as I can't even find the options or embed on fb?

You just write them manually for now, like this (in bold):

[fb]<iframe src="https://www.facebook.com/video/embed?video_id=556114647753442" width="640" height="480" frameborder="0"></iframe>[/fb]

Your video isn't showing, probably because it's private in facebook. You need to make it public.

I will add a new button to add the tags automatically. For now just type them, please.

You need to include the square brackets as well, Lisa. Just copy the whole line, like I posted it:

I edited your post. As you can see, the video is not available due to privacy restrictions. You need to make it public on facebook.

Ok, there is already a new facebook button, in the video buttons row, that will add the tags once you click it, just like with images and other videos.

Everything has been done correctly, but your video is not public. Probably is set to be viewed by friends only and in that circumstance, it won't be displayed. It must be viewable by everyone.

Only took me about a week to fathom it out:)

***Now thats got me puzzled -it was on and its now disappeared?***

Oh flipping heck rui - if I'm logged into my facebook account the videos show on here, but when I log out, the videos disappear? I've made the videos public?
Any idea where I am going wrong please - and I thought I'd cracked it.

You did crack it, it's clearly the privacy settings of the video that stop it being visible. The info I get tells me the video is not available due to privacy restrictions.

Also, when you login to facebook, and view the video here, facebook knows who you are and allows you to view it.
