Trying to use video tag
« on: August 01, 2022, 05:13:32 pm »
I am trying to load a video in a post using

Code: [Select]
[html]
<video width="640" height="480" controls >
  <source src="https://video.twimg.com/ext_tw_video/1554124231947984899/pu/vid/720x900/W21hBu5PqPU-xndS.mp4?tag=12" type="video/mp4">
  <source src="movie.ogg" type="video/ogg">
  Your browser does not support the video tag.
</video>


[/html]


I can do this as Admin, but not as a normal user. What permission do I need to give a normal user to allow this?

Admins only have the option of using html tags as for other issues can cause security issues/issues.

I appreciate there's big security issues with [ html]. As a suggestion, I'd say can you allow a bbcode equivalent of the video tag then that translates to the <video> tag.
But I can live with the current situation, thanks.

or maybe automatic recognition of the normal video extensions, .mp4, .ogg etc...

I can probably do it if the link ends in .ogg or .mp4
