Posting videos from YouTube in a thread?????

Postby BigJakesrq » Mon Jul 02, 2012 7:33 pm

Can't ever seem to get it right :violent1:

What needs to go between the "[youtube] [/youtube]" I've been putting the videos URL and that doesn't work.
Help a brother out, can't believe I can't figure it out. Seems like it would be easy enough and probably is :scratch:

You do NOT use the entire URL to embed a video. The URL posted as a URL with the URL Button will post as a hot link.

To embed with the YouTube button you use only the portion of the URL between the = signs =. Sometimes the tail end of this code needs to be trimmed a bit. In that case I start eliminating one character at a time until it embeds.

There's like an 8? Digit number at the end of the url. Put that between the YouTube tabs.

You have to look for the video id in the url and use that. Youtube urls vary depending on whether you were searching for a video, found it in a channel, etc.. The same video can more that one url, but it will have only one video id.

Here's an example for the video below. Both urls point to the same video. The part you want to use is after "v=". If the url continues with "&", you don't include that.

Here' the video urls:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F2mbH5wgZRM
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F2mbH5wgZRM&feature=channel&list=UL

Here's what will display the video in a post:

Code: Select all

[youtube]F2mbH5wgZRM[/youtube]




Hope this helps.

Rick
