Hi, I have posted many threads on ATS using the shortcut type of link for youtube or google. What I am having a hard time figuring out is using the youtube video / google video inserts , so the video is already open when you activate the thread. I keep getting a bad url# for the vide. Is there some info that needs to be deleated ??

use this bbcode [yvid ]

and the last part of the video example =UBgQfhE0sY8&hl (without the =)


Step one
Url Bar

step two select text after =

step three
click Insert youtube on Left, clearly labled Youtube, insert code that you selected and copied

[yvid]Pbh3CDBNIQA[/yvid ]

final result


same principles with google videos except you use gvid insted of yvid

Thank you, I have tried doing exactly that, however when I review the post before I actually post it I see nothing but a dark screen. Is yhis normal ? I usually stop right there and go back to the shortcut method.

When using firefox, I would get the blank screen if I reviewed. However it would typically work. I also, for some reason would have to use the &feature after the yutube video number. Others have said they did not need to use these.

I hope this helps

some video's do not allow embedding. it depends on what the user has set when he uploaded the vid, but its pretty rare.
