How to embed a youtube video in a forum post

Post by MadMojo » Wed Oct 19, 2011 9:49 am

Hey all.

Yes, it is possible now to have a video embedded in a post. A youtube URL looks like this:

Code: Select all

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hb92wQpPG-s
Important is the last part, the video ID: Hb92wQpPG-s

Here a brief description how to embed this video:
  • - When you are creating a new post you see a youtube button above the editing text area.
    - Click on it and paste the video ID inbetween the tags.

Code: Select all

[youtube]Hb92wQpPG-s[/youtube]
You are finished! Here the result:


Restrictions:
The youtube URL you see when choosing a video must be www . youtube . com!
There also exist youtube.com without www, for example youtube.de... Right now all these specific URLs for countries are not possible.

Have Fun!
