Embed Hulu.com Videos in Forum Posts

Just added support for hulu.com -- the new site that provides free HQ viewing of current and historic TV shows from several popular networks.




To embed a Hulu video in your post, use BBCode:

[HULU]insert-Hulu-ID-here[/HULU]

Get the HuluID from the embded code they generate when you lick on the Embded link for the video of interest:

<object width="512" height="296"><param name="movie" value="http://www.hulu.com/embed/gcNujLr0EWaTTCbO1D2OEQ"><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"><embed src="http://www.hulu.com/embed/gcNujLr0EWaTTCbO1D2OEQ" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" width="512" height="296"></embed></object>

where the huluID in this example is: gcNujLr0EWaTTCbO1D2OEQ

With this addition, we now support embed videos from the following sites:
  • YouTube.com
  • Eyeblast.com
  • RedLasso.com
  • MSNBC
