Well off topic but I think this thread shows how the members of ATS are MORE than willing to help anyone out. I mean there was a literal explosion of helpful posts in ten minutes. Wow, what a great members ATS has.

There must be some kind of ATS issue mate, seemed to work just fine, but I couldn't see it in the preview.

Are you using the [yvid] [/y vid] brackets around the code?

No space between the letters (ie; yvid NOT y vid), I only did so it would not code.

You're hitting the "YouTube VIDEO" button when you post a reply, pasting in those letters, and hitting okay?

Try doing [ yvid]code here[ /yvid] without the spaces after the left bracket.

The brackets come up with you hit the "YouTube Video" button, paste in the code, and press okay. It inserts right into your post. Then you can post that.

Just hit "quote" on my post where I embedded your video. It will have the exact BB tags and youtube code in the reply box that is needed.

Applause!


I like this one for the History Channel myself.




Suggestion for the next series: The url tag.

Very long and complicated links don't work right without that because auto-linking only uses so many of the characters.
