YouTube Embedding

Post by Rafiki » Fri Jul 19, 2013 12:21 pm

I noticed that there is a youtube feature while you are making a post [youtube][/youtube], but do not understand what I am suppose to take and place in between the boxes to have a youtube video pop up within the actual forum post like some of us do with pictures on here. I tried 5 different things but eventually just used the feature to post the link to the youtube video in another post. Can anyone explain how to take advantage of the [youtube][/youtube] option?

Flash is off.... or this would work by itself

could be something to keep the bandwith down on the server?

Ya I was going to say, I tried all of the options that you listed and had absolutely no luck. I guess flash is off and I would not be surprised if it was to keep bandwidth down. A lot of people come on here and we want to keep things simple and cheap so that all can enjoy the site. No big deal, I can always just post a url link. Thanks for your help anyways lucky.

It appears the YouTube code changed some. I'll have to figure out to what and update the embed code.

YouTube embedding is now working. It will work with any YouTube video.

Likewise, it will also work with many other web video services, such as Vimeo.

To embed a video, just paste the link into your post and then enclose it with the "video" tags, which can be found above the "Message body" box in your post.

For YouTube:

Usage:

Code: Select all

[video]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xpMfoUhdaGU&feature=youtu.be[/video]
Example:
[video]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xpMfoUh ... e=youtu.be[/video]

For Vimeo:

Usage:

Code: Select all

[video]http://vimeo.com/37744624[/video]

Even though I hiked the Border Route trail (Minnesota) this year, I needed an Isle Royale fix and these videos helped. I look forward to next year's trip to ISRO.
