How to embed Youtube videos?

Postby Tony Enamel » Tue Aug 17, 2010 7:04 am

Hi Tom,

I tried to embed a Youtube video, but couldn't.

Tried two ways to do so:
    copying the URL into the message text, then marking it and pushing the Youtube button of the editor;
    copying the Youtube embed code into the message text and proceeding as above.

In both cases, there was no Youtube video seen in the final post, only a large empty gap.

I ended up just posting the URL as an ordinary link.

What was wrong?

Cheers,

Ingo

Find the youtube URL in the address bar, and copy the character code that appears after "v=" in the url. It'll be about 10 alphanumeric characters. Copy it, hit the youtube button and paste in the character code.

Thanks, Matt!

I know embedding Youtube videos from several forums, but mostly it was about pasting in the whole URL and hitting the Youtube button, not only using the specific code.

This was new to me - and it worked now!
