How to embed Gametrailers

Recommended Posts

iPBoard used to have a feature where you could post a link to a Gametrailers video and it would embed like the Youtube ones do. Gametrailers broke this when they changed their embed code a few years ago.

 

I've put together a way we can still embed Gametrailer videos, but it requires a couple more steps than just posting the link. To post a Gametrailers video:

 

1) Click the Embed code button

2) Copy the media link out of the embed code from the "http" to just before the quotation mark that ends the link:

What you should have copied out:

3) Post that link like you would a YouTube video. The iPBoard plugin will do the rest and the video should embed.

Awesome! Thanks, Cam. This broken embedding really pissed me off during E3 in a number of threads cause I couldn't get some vids posted.
