How to Embed A Youtube Video To Your Post

Postby GhostInTheMachine » Wed May 29, 2013 2:20 pm

PLEASE NOTE WE ONLY WANT APPROPRIATE VIDEOS ENBEDDED IN THE FORUM, NOTHNG THAT VIOLATES THE FORUM RULES!!!!

If you take a look, you will notice when you start to add a new post there is now a new "youtube" button in panel of the edit screen, in the top right above the field where you type your posts.

If you want to add a video to a post, do this:

1) first tap to place the cursor where you want the video to appear in your post, then click on this Youtube button.

You will then see this appear on the screen [youtube][/youtube]

2) Go into Youtube and click on your video so it shows up on the screen. Then take a look at the top of your your computer screen to see the URL code (which starts with "www." or "http://")
this is path showing the "address" of the video you are looking at.

It will look something like this:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p8HWYUX4z30

3) Now, copy the bit of code that appears after the " = " In this case it's: p&HWYUX4z30

This number is the youtube video ID

4) Then paste it BETWEEN the two tabs [youtube][/youtube].

Then when you press submit or preview you will get your video showing up, in this case this one :D :
