How to Embed youtube Vids?

Post by Andy P » Thu Nov 03, 2011 12:21 am

Tried a few times to Embed youtube Videos on here but doesn`t seem to work. I can copy and paste the URL easy enough but can`t seem to get the Vid to show up actually on this site.
How do i do it??????

You don't paste the whole URL, just the bit after the = sign, the code part of the URL as it were.

In simple terms:

1: Click the media button to get this

Code: Select all

[media][/media]
2: Copy the highlighted part of the URL

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RlRFgs0kUPM

3: Paste it into the middle of the media tags

And you get this:

Code: Select all

[media]RlRFgs0kUPM[/media]
4: Submit

which gives you this:

Kata, that's a bit like what I said but you've added an = sign and used the whole URL.

Oh blow it Goggle,

I did it the other week but now it does'nt.

Too used to <code><object width="160" height="160"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/ht0zsE9GPrs?ve ... ram><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/ht0zsE9GPrs?version=3&hl=en_US" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="160" height="160" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object></code>

Which is what my site uses.

Thanks Goggle.

Good work Kata, you're welcome icon_cheers

Just remember to copy everything AFTER the = and you'll be right.

There are lots of buttons above where you type, there's one for pics (ing) one for links (URL) and on the row below tucked in the left side there's one called media that does exactly what it says on the tin.
