How to embed YouTube videos in your posts

Post by ezcheese » Sat Dec 05, 2009 4:32 pm

Just a quick note, we have added YouTube embedding once again. When you are on the posting screen, you will see a YouTube button underneath the different text style manipulation buttons between the title and body text entry fields.

If you mouse over the YouTube button, help text appears that explains how to properly embed a video, but I will also put this up as a sticky to create awareness.

when you use the tags, you only need to paste the part of the url that comes after the v= and before any & that may be in the string.

There are some kinks with this system though. Kenneth found that trying to post a video from a playlist doesn't work, so you always need to get the source video ID string from the video.

Gonna give it a try. I've never attempted to add a video to a post.

Here's "Unchained Melody" from Elvis' final concert in 1977...
