My b2evolution Version: 2.x

I am hosting videos on, which work great for all uses except on my B2Evolution blog. I receive errors for using the <object> and <embed> tags in there share code.

I cannot change the way the video share code is created so need to modify my B2Evolution settings, just not certain how or what to modify. Error report says "to get rid of above validation warnings, you can deactivate unwated validation rules in your Group Settings."

When I click the 'group settings' link in the error report I go to the 'Viewing Group: Administrators" page. What do I modify here to permit the tags?

B2Evolution v2.4.5

Here is code for part of a video tutorial hosted on my account:

<object id="scPlayer" width="320" height="240"> <param name="movie" value=""></param> <param name="quality" value="high"></param> <param name="bgcolor" value="#FFFFFF"></param> <param name="flashVars" value="thumb="></param> <param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param> <param name="scale" value="showall"></param> <param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always"></param> <param name="base" value=""></param> <embed src="" quality="high" bgcolor="#FFFFFF" width="320" height="240" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowScriptAccess="always" flashVars="thumb=" allowFullScreen="true" base="" scale="showall"></embed> </object>

Well - this is actually of interest to me as well. Does anybody have a solution? Youtube only allows 10 Minutes, and the other services supported do not allow professional content, etc. So I am also looking for a way to include up to 1 hour videos on our blog (mostly presentations for learning and updates...). Screencast is one option, maybe someone has a better option (free would be even better) ?

I can't vouch for your version of b2evo, but 3.3.3 has some settings on that page that you can change from "Force valid XHTML + strong security" to 'Basic security checking". Perhaps there's something similar in your version?

<embed> is an invalid tag in xhtml ;)

It is an invalid tag in xhtml, but since so many sites use the embed tag, if you are using a 2.x generation of b2evolution you could make a few simple modifications (hacks) to your formatting.php file and allow the embed codes in video display sites "embed" code to work on your blog pages.

Back in 2007, I did a post which tells you how to do this step by step (for a 2x version):

Of course, you would then be no longer xhtml compliant (if that matters to you), but you will be able to embed videos in your posts using the "embed" tag.

Upgrading to a 3.3 version might provide other solutions (I'm not sure).

I'm having the same problem,, can't embed an audio file.
Say I can allow it in Grout Settings,, but when I get there there's nothing to guide me. Like being sent to a dead end. I don't want to hack into my PHP files and reprogram the system,, when will B2 simply allow embed codes.

Are there any updates as far as being able to embed videos from sites using the iframe tags?

I'm using b2evo 4.1.5

You just need to allow iframes and objects in group settings.
