Youtube Embedding Tutorial

Post by DarkCow » October 2nd, 2011, 6:14 pm

Hello folks! You can fully embed any youtube video that is embed enabled directly into a forum post anywhere on these forums. It is actually quite simple, but a little unintuitive at first when you don't know exactly what you are doing. (Believe me, I fiddled around with it for a good half an hour the first time before I got it to work.)


To embed a youtube video on the forums you must use these BBcode tags:

Code: Select all

[Youtube][/Youtube]


Those tags, for your convenience are available at the press of a button in the formatting options at the top of your posting area.
Once you have the tags and a youtube video you want to embed, simply insert the video's ID code. (important:this is not the full URL, it is simply the collection of letters that denotes the specific video on youtube)

Example:

Code: Select all

[Youtube]G-4JMHo6WUM[/Youtube]


Will appear like so:


Also make sure you don't have the "Disable BBCode" check box marked, as that will certainly block any use of BBCode.


Hope that helps!

You are most welcome... although I hope I didn't break anything by posting this as "global" and having it appear here in the spam catch. [smilie=nea.gif]

See? That's what I was going for! Thank you Bandinas. Two Sith-side cookies for you! (Even though I know you won't eat them.)

You didn't break anything Global just makes the post appear in every forum. I have changed it to a GAT announcement for now.

Aye, I understood what the Global option was for, I figured it would be ideal for something like this as someone might want to post a youtube video anywhere.

Ah well, GAT will just have to do. :D
