When you're watching the video on Youtube, click the "more info" and look for the "URL" box. Copy/paste the url.

Remove everything in front of (and including) "v="

...to get this:

Wrap yvid tags around it. Like this:

[yvid]SyZN5DsWBsc[/yvid]

Let me just try this by copy-paste your code into this post.
I too have not been able to embed tubews or gv’s into my posts. I understood and understand the principle but when I preview the posts there is an ‘\’ added behind the video number rendering it rather useless. I dunno if posting it will do different. I found it better to link directly to the video rather then take the change of having a black box doing nothing.

Alright that raps it. Now what’s the deal with previewing and this ‘\’ added to the adress rendering the whole thing worthless?

Thanx for this try out area!

When embedding in posts, you can't see it in preview mode. You just have to post and edit afterwards if you made a mistake.



Btw, here's a list of lots of threads on bts with embedded Youtube videos:

Threads Tagged With: music videos, or Similar



It's also possible to embed Google videos, but it's a little bit more tricky. It's gvid tags wrapped around the video-id.


Google Video Link

For gvid tags to work, the video has to be hosted on Google. It's not enough to watch the video through Googles video search.

If embedding is disabled, this is the message you'll get. The video might still be there. Click the "Youtube Link" below the video to watch the video on Youtube.

I still see it and it is up and running on my comp? Is anyone else having problems seeing my video? This was my first attempt at it too, so just wondering?

Also I hate to admit it but I realy did not mean to hit the reply button for the Old Man...

My kids LOVE that video and it gets stuck in my head so I find it very funny. I hope anyone else that sees and hears it does too...

In your post in this thread, it says your video is "no longer available" because embedding was/is apparently disabled for that video. However, by clicking the "Youtube Link", that video can still be seen at Youtube (it is there now at the time of this posting). If the video-owner changes his/her mind and allow embedding for that video, it can be seen in its embedded form here in this thread.

If you try to watch an embedded video in any thread, and it says the video is "no longer available", then click the "Youtube Link" to find out if the video is really gone, or if only the embedding was disabled. Some people disable embedding for their videos on Youtube. I don't know why they do this.
I guess they don't want anyone to see their videos. Or they want you to see it only on Youtube.
