Figured this would be the best place to post this... I added some code to automatically embed youtube videos (no need to paste the embed code any more unless you want to tweak the aspect ratio).  Just paste the video link and it will automatically embed.

Like this?

A week long solo backpacking adventure in the North Cascades  Nope! This was from posting the URL as a link.

Or this? (Just pasting the link as if it were text)


Hey, that works! Thanks Tom

Just a tip if you want to avoid letterboxing (black bars around the video).  If the video isn't 16:9 it will display letterboxed.  To avoid this you can go to youtube, right click on the video, "copy embed code", then paste that code here.  Important: you MUST do this at youtube and you MUST right click on the video (do NOT click on the "share" option at youtube which will embed with 16:9 aspect ratio).  This usually avoids letterboxing for horizontally oriented video.  If not, just reduce the height until it displays without letterboxing.  For vertically oriented video just reduce the width until it displays without letterboxing.  For example:

"Right click" embed code from youtube: up.gif


"Share" embed code from youtube: down.gif


Vertical without and with width adjustment:

Thanks, Tom.  up.gif  That works great, even on my Mac with no right click  hihi.gif  I had been trying unsuccessfully to embed videos for years, but always ended up just posting the link.  Already re-posted my latest "What Music Have You Been Listening To?"

The only vertical adjustment should be a ban on vertical videos.  biggrin.gif

So easy!
Agent 505 Death Trap Beirut! Starts off good, gets better and then just turns to jello. Worth it for the classic scenes of Beirut in the early 60's, when it was the most swingin'est spot on the whole jetsetter trail.

I'm digging the classic selection over at ok.ru videos. Seriously, watch this little man dance... https://ok.ru/video/1676250581648?fromTime=324

OK Rooski makes firefox take about 7 minutes to quit on my mac... you might want to consider your liabilities if running a windows os, but there is a really fab selection of movies here...

I ran into this video series last night. I thought it was quite interesting, and informative, even though I'll likely never build/re-build an engine of any sort.

"Are you ready for the Yukon Striker, the world's fastest, longest, and tallest dive rollercoaster? It opens in May at Wonderland in Vaughan, Ontario just outside Toronto. It has a record 245 foot drop. Here is the simulation of it."


According to the web site here are some world records for this roller coaster:

1. The fastest dive coaster at 130 km/h (80 mph)
2. The longest dive coaster at 3,625 feet (1,105 metres)
3. Tallest dive coaster at 245 feet (75 metres) - includes underground

Great simulation.  That first drop is mighty steep.   eek.gif      ~z
