How to show youtube videos on this forum

Post by speedy »

you can now embed the videos on youtube directly to this forum.

get your video loaded up on youtube and then in the address bar we want to take the identifying code from the url.

so the url will look something like this in the address bar

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

we are only interested in the part after the =

so we will just copy mHYSfX_eEBg

in the post message screen above the text window you will notice there is now a youtube button, press that and then copy the identifying code between the tags it puts into your message,

it should look something like this

Code: Select all

[youtube]mHYSfX_eEBg[/youtube]
if you have done it correctly, when you submit your message your post should show your video like this
