    Default Embedding YouTube video on the forums

    We have just added functionality to allow YouTube video embedding. It's actually fairly easy. Here is a sample:



    All you need to do is obtain the video code and enclose it between two BB tags, like this:

    HTML Code:
    [youtube]JE-Nyt4Bmi8[/youtube]
    For example, to embed the video above, I copied the v= code from this URL: http://youtube.com/watch?v=JE-Nyt4Bmi8 and placed it between the start tag and the end tag.

    The reason for the BB code is to allow this kind of functionality without the risk of crackers inserting malicious code. It's a little more complicated for us to use, but at least we don't have to worry about a crash.

    Naturally, forum rules apply for these embedded videos.

    I just wanted to bump this one towards the top, as most members seem unaware of this great new feature.

    Only use the last part of your youtube address..after the v= .. and be sure to add the BB tags shown in Webmaster's post.

    Great feature BTW.. thanks Webmaster!

    As far as I know, we don't have that ability. David may know something that I don't, though.

    Default Not available yet...

    I think this is theoretically possible, but I haven't found an explanation yet.

    If there is a user reading this who understands the BB Code needed to make this happen, please contact me.

    Default You tube changes?

    Maybe YouTube has made some changes in their coding. We may have to go back to the drawing board on this.

    Exclamation YouTube; Reloaded

    Gotta love Google.

    First search I tried had the code; went to the bottom of the thread, copied it; pasted it in the BB code manager and voila!

    YouTube had changed their system. Imagine that. A website changing things!

    Thanks for pointing out the problem, guys.
