Lightbulb Volunteers needed

(note: this is a private forum right now restricted to current MUST members only. we'll open it up to the public when we've made some good progress on it)

Sean's idea to create a video forum is an excellent one, so let's do it.

He's gotten off to a good start listing a number of videos off YouTube.

How this will work

What I'd like to do is to separate each of these videos out so that each clip has its own thread. My reasons for suggesting one clip per thread is because the forum will do a better job indexing them, they'll be easier to search for, and we'll be able to rate them using the forum rating stars.

I think if we just try to follow some simple rules/guidelines for the titles/threads this'll be a great little place -- and it'll be easy to find stuff too (parkesy will be so pleased!)

Here's what I propose - this is totally open to discussion though if people think there are better ways.

First, I'm thinking we should have two subforums: one for general match highlights, the other for specific players.

Within each subforum, the thread titles:
  • If it's highlights from a specific match, the OPPONENT, whether it was home or away as (H) or (A) or (N), the COMPETITION (abbreviated for space saving purposes), the date in dd/mm/yyyy format and a brief description.

    Competition abbrevs: PREM, DIV1, DIV2, FAC, LC (league cup), CL (Champions League), FR (friendly), and if there are any others please suggest.

    example:
    BAYERN MUNICH (N) - CL FINAL - 26/05/1999 - LAST 3 MINS

    I wonder whether we'll have space issues. I'll check to see if we can expand the field size for the title. Again, if you think there's a better way to do this please suggest it.
  • If it's a collection/compilation of a specific player's feats, then obviously the player name (SURNAME, FORENAME) and a description of the video

    example:
    CANTONA, ERIC - CHIPS THE KEEPER V SUNDERLAND
    SCHOLES, PAUL - GENERAL COMPILATION
Within each thread:
  • When you post the YouTube or video clip, go ahead and embed the link so you can see the first frame of the video using the new YouTube bbcode.

    [ youtube ] jGjoCVGnbhA&NR [ /youtube ]
    Note that you should take the spaces out if you're typing this in (I had to use them to keep from actually embedding the video).

    Alternately you can cut and paste the code letters, select them, and click the YOUTUBE graphic in the post editor (you should see right above the box where you enter text for a post. you're looking for this image
  • Note that you need to just use the funny code/letters and not the full link in order for this to work.
  • Please also enter a description of the video clip so people know what they are looking at. Go ahead and be descriptive and editorialise to your heart's content!
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

We need someone to shepherd this project along. The initial work will be to take Sean's post and break it down so that each clip becomes a thread. I'll give mod privileges so you can edit and delete posts within this forum. Please reply to this thread if you're interested in helping out.

We also need some people to scour the net for videos. So anyone looking to do this please reply to this thread.

My hope is that we get 2-3 or even more dedicated "video librarians". Think about how great this would be!

Anyway enough out of me. Please offer your suggestions or volunteer now!

Do you have to use a custom BB code to embed the youtube video JD?

This is the suggested way of doing it in VBulletin posts - it appears it isn't configured for this forum, however.

I'd add that there have been reported security risks with embedding in vBulletin and other forums so might want to check that out first.

... what specifically Darren? Can you point me to any of them? I think we obv want to make sure we're not doing anything to compromise the board.

To be honest I think it's mostly to do with embedding flash files, as they could contain malicious action script. I'd imagine you'd be ok with youtube vids. I'll have a dig in a bit to see if I can find anything out.

I would expect that if they've made it onto YouTube then someone else would have discovered any maliciousness already.

If you could have a look that would be great. I'll get started on adding the BB code. I'm going to see if I can restrict it to this forum to begin with (if I can).

Can't see any security issues. You're doing all the embedding at the backend so the user can only post a youtube reference. I've seen a valid point of preventing people from using the new BB code in signatures though.

Will the ability to embed the videos be forum wide or restricted to just this particular one? Just curious.

well i've found this:

Advanced BBCode permissions
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=122942

It limits permissions based on usergroup, so in this case we could make it so only mods are allowed to use it. Or we could just throw it up there. I'm not too worried about it TBH. What do you think?
