It is only Jan 3 and damn if I can't figure this out. I have lurked on ATS since the early 00's when I was a mere scrub in a horrible office job but only joined and started to really post a year or so ago.

My question. It's a question asked a million times before on this site and even after searching in the annals of ATS I cannot find the answer I seak.

I primarily use my iPhone for this site. How on gods green earth do I post a video?

How do I post a YouTube and non YouTube video?

I feel as though I am not contributing fully because of my naivety on this matter!

Thanks in advance and feel free to poke the bear on this matter (me) cause I just can't figure it out.

YouTube vids are like this:

[ yvid ] everything after the = sign [ /yvid ]

(take spaces out from the brackets)

Example:

Ok, so I understand that. I watched a video exposing that. But on my iPhone, I don't even see a video posting button.

Maybe you just need to type the BBcode.

Stop distracting me with amazing cooking shows (one of my all time favs)!

I'm trying to figure this out!

Side note: The Gyllenhaal's would shop regularly at my last place of work in Brooklyn.

I'm acting like a special kind of moron I understand this but do I just post the code from YouTube or how do I even begin to post a video? This is no Video post button that I see on ATS.

Type the BBcode, put in the video id and then type the reset of the code.

Wrong:

nffGuGwCE3E

Right:

Ok, now I owe you thanx. Very good lesson. Now I can annoy people through old YouTube videos, much appreciated.

Perhaps choose desktop site? In 7 years I've never used the ATS app... ever. Just visit the site(s) in my browser, bookmark it once signed in... and whether tab, laptop, phone... I clicked desktop site.

Never had issues or ads. Seems choosing desktop version shows me all icons... P's... Check your view sizing..
