I see people having trouble with embedding videos, so I will try to help.

Take the video link...

www.youtube.com...

Take everything after the equal sign...


FQlgA68z_L4


[yvid)(/yvid] (Replace ")(" with "][")

and put it in-between these two code things.



Or just use the button to add in youtube videos, which ever suits you.


Stupid typos...

I fixed it. You had a space after the first tag. That's why it didn't work.

There should be no space between the bbcode tags and the youtube video number inside.

Instead of (yvid) XFnGhrC_3Gs (/yvid)

you need (yvid)XFnGhrC_3Gs(/yvid)

only using square brackets instead of parentheses, obviously.

It's actually pretty easy imho ...

At the top of every post page you have these skittles:



All you need is to press on the youtube one and paste the youtube video id (the numbers letters after the = on the url).

Once you get used to it it only takes a sec.

Hope that helps.

Yes, that's what you put in between the tags. Just make sure that there are no spaces anywhere.

Here's what you had in your earlier post:

[yvid] XFnGhrC_3Gs [/yvid]

And here's what it should be:

[yvid]XFnGhrC_3Gs[/yvid]

Just copy that and you'll get:



edit to say: Yay! I see you got it to work

Just testing the youtube link function.



It works!!!

The problem is you can't see the video in the preview mode, that's why I thought it didn't work

If you type "&Feature=related" after the code, you'll be able to see the video in the preview, unless it has another code like "&Feature=report" or some other then you should be able to already.

A little trick I discovered, try it, it works!!

for example

(yvid)EFRGhhye12(/yvid) will post but not show in the preview, BUT:

(yvid)EFRGhhye12&Feature=related(/yvid)

Will!!

That appears to work well.



Always useful to preview before posting.
