we now have a [video] tag in postings to show a lot of video

I added some functionality that allows you to add a video to your post.
this finds out from what site you want the video and then adds the code
that makes it work (which differs for each videosite). nifty !

procedure :
1)go to the site your video is on (e.g. youtube)
2)copy the http:// link shown by your browser when you see the video (NOT the "embed" code)
4)click on the button "video" above your posting
5) fill in the copied http:// link inbetween the [video] and [/video] tags
6) submit the post (add more text to the posting if you want)

this should work for a LOT of video sites.
Regards,

Ronald van Aalst
