    Hi,

    I would liek to use P2 for a site featuring some Youtube-videos and also upload some other videos.
    Is it possible to do this with P2-theme out of the box or do I need some other plug-ins like "WordTube" ir something else ?

    do I need to use the WordPress-Video-player or is it also possible to use other video-players ?

    Appreciate your kind help !

    I'm not real sure what you are asking?

    You install the theme, you install the plugin........ the plugin works with the theme....

    EMB - that is of course the question! Some of the folks posting are NOT specifically P2 users... so have no idea what your problem is!

    SO - the solution to figuring out your thing is to figure out how the plugin is "called" in the backend... Then you would insert (probably into post-form.php) the appropriate code... something like:

    example:
    <?php if(function_exists('the_ratings')) { the_ratings(); } ?>

    This is from the ratings plugin I use. I call it, rather than let it decide where to stick itself. I would rather control where it goes... and my P2 theme has been heavily modified.

    I'm interested in this video plugin... so maybe I'll take a hack at it.

    Wow... cool... so my first attempt got this result... which means its trying!

    [ERROR: Unable to parse URL, check for correct DailyMotion format]

    OH - but I used a YOUTUBE link... I bet that was it! I just went to that website - it has videos.
    ...
    Oh sweet! It worked!

    Now how do I get the buttons on my form!?

    I suppose, like youtube, I don't have to wrry about dailymotions availability. I thought it was a different site.

    OK - I got the DailyMotion one to work:

    [dailymotion]http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xa874c_tom-mabe-eavesdropping_news[/dailymotion]
    
    [YouTube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bih28LY5v24]

    But the YouTube one is not...

    OK - I don't read French or whatever language that is catalpa!!! LOL

    So I tried formatting the youtube just like the dailymotion one and THAT worked!

    Very nice - thanks catalpa. I wonder why the vipervideo plugin doesn't explain it like you did! Even if it was in another language, I was able to follow it!

    Now for the button! I looked at the code last night and I think I found the right function. The problem is that I will want the resultant chose videos to go into MY TEXTAREA... not the backend. Without registering on your site I can't see how you did it. Did you have buttons? Or is it that you know the code?

    I can't depend on my visitors to know the code... so I need buttons, or will have to make an interface...
