How to embed youtube videos.

With the forum upgrade it became difficult to embed youtube videos, now it has been made much easier.

To insert a youtube video into a post, first go to youtube and find the video that you want to post-


Attachment:

youtube-url.jpg [ 95.26 KiB | Viewed 4011 times ]


In the address bar is the url of the video, highlight the url using the mouse by left clicking in the address bar, it will turn blue as in the picture above. Copy this line and then paste it into your new post-

Now highlight the text by pressing left click on the mouse and moving it over the line of code.

Then click on the youtube button-

Attachment:

This will insert
Code:
[youtube] [/youtube]
tags onto the selected url

Attachment:
youtube2.jpg
youtube2.jpg [ 65.6 KiB | Viewed 4011 times ]


Then click on preview and you will see the video appear.

When you are happy with it click on submit and your video will appear like this-

You need to input the URL of the video you want to show, the url you have tried to use is what happens when you watch a featured/related video, so you have to remove the &feature=related for it to work
