XenForo 1 Vine BB Code Media Site for XenForo

Vine is a mobile service by Twitter that lets you capture and share short looping videos. The videos on Vine are meant to be brief, like a tweets on Twitter, and so they are limited to 6 seconds or less. (Example at Cool Sci-Fi)

When a Twitter user tweets a Vine video then the video will appear inline on Twitter owned sites. For example, this tweet by director James Mangold contains a Vine video teaser for the new The Wolverine movie with Hugh Jackman.

If you click on the link "The Wolverine's post on Vine" you are then directed to the Vine web site.

Embedding the Vine video into your XenForo posts is pretty easy using a BB Code Media Site definition. Just follow the directions below.

Go into your XenForo to create a new BB Code Media Site.

XF ACP => BB Code Media Sites => Add BB Code Media Site
