Download: Media Tag - ESPN Video


Recommended Posts

  • 1 year later...

Hello Michael, We're about to upgrade our board to 3.3.4 soon, but in the meantime, we're using 3.1.4 and this hook has stopped working for ESPN videos. Months ago when I first installed this hook, thing were working great. Just recently, however, I was informed by one of my members that the ESPN BBCode doesn't work with ESPN videos anymore. Can the cause be coming from ESPN? Perhaps they changed their video format or something? This isn't a crucial issue since we will be upgrading soon, but is this hook still working good for 3.3.4? Thanks ahead of time.

Michael, you mention that videos can only show if the link looks like this:


I tried a different video from the link you provided of ESPN videos, but the only two optional codes ESPN provides to use their videos are these two:

[CODE] http://espn.go.com/video/clip?id=espn:8087856


<script src="http://player.espn.com/player.js?&playerBrandingId=4ef8000cbaf34c1687a7d9a26fe0e89e&pcode=1kNG061cgaoolOncv54OAO1ceO-I&width=576&height=324&externalId=espn:8087856&thruParam_espn-ui[autoPlay]=false&thruParam_espn-ui[playRelatedExternally]=true"></script>

But neither of those allow a video to show. Not sure where else to go to get the right codes on ESPN to share their videos. But like I said, no big deal, maybe it's because we're using 3.1.4 or something and will upgrade soon.

I have encountered the same thing maybe I can clarify this. So I went to add this link under the media tag:

When I add it there is nothing the post goes blank. I have added this code. Here is what is under the BBD code settings in mine:

Maybe i am missing something.

Emplacement match:http://espn.go.com/video/clip?id={1}(|&*)
Replacement HTML: <object width="384" height="216" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" id="ESPN_VIDEO" data="http://espn.go.com/videohub/player/embed.swf" allowScriptAccess="always" allowNetworking="all">
<param name="movie" value="http://espn.go.com/videohub/player/embed.swf" />
<param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"/>
<param name="wmode" value="opaque"/>
<param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always"/>
<param name="allowNetworking" value="all"/>
<param name="flashVars" value="id=$1"/>

Any thoughts?

Thanks and I am on 3.1.4 as well.
