Question Possible to imbed streamable.com videos?

Instagram Story videos are becoming popular, but can’t be direct linked and disappear after 24hrs, so need rehosting. streamable.com appears to be the favoured host for this task, and to get them to imbed would be the neatest solution. If you can kindly work your magic?

Re: Possible to imbed streamable.com videos?

That's something we could look into once we hear more feedback from others that would like to see this added to the site. If this has been talked about elsewhere, could you link the thread here?

Once we have a few people in favor for this, we can bring this up to the mods and see what they think of this.

Thank you for your suggestion.


Cheers,
Natalie

Yes I think it's a great idea. I use streamable a lot.

Re: Possible to imbed streamable.com videos?

Thanks guys, I've done some research and think I may have found something that will work on the site. If it's compatible and the mods agree with it, we'll proceed with the request to have this done.

I found another site that has a video from streamable with a bbcode that enables this: New BBcode - streamable - CPFC BBS

Stand by for an update on this - thank you for your suggestion and feedback.


Thank you,
Natalie

Contary to what I stated above, I have now found the direct url for the videos. Here's one I posted of Daria: https://instagram.flhr2-1.fna.fbcdn....30700288_n.mp4 and they seem to stay hosted after they've disappeared from stories after 24hrs.

Now I've tried extracting parts of that url to use between the existing instagram tags , like you would with an instagram photo, but I can't make it imbed. Is there a way, using the existing instagram tags?

Re: Possible to imbed streamable.com videos?

Hey Mike_T,

Unfortunately with streamable.com and any other streaming services opens up windows of liabilities so that is not something we can go with but I'm glad you came up with an alternative - the instagram option.

I did research and think found something that could work to embed insta vids on here: https://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=303936.

Before I bring this up with the mods, does anyone else want to chime in about this? Yay or nay? Thanks for your patience and feedback on this.


Cheers,
Natalie

Re: Possible to imbed streamable.com videos?

Thanks Natalie for the update.

I've found a halfway solution to this, if the video has no audio or where audio isn't essential. Simply take the originating url over to imgur and make a gif: https://imgur.com/vidgif Like so:

Maybe there's better video to gif sites out there where you can control gif size, or on/off control?

That's what I've been doing all the time already.

Why? you can fix the size at imgur! After the upload is complete just look for "edit" & voila, yer done.
