Youtube video embedding tutorial

Post by dlarson » Mon Nov 02, 2009 7:45 pm

For those of you you would like to embed Youtube videos in your posts you can now do so with the special 'Youtube' button.

You will first need to determine the URL key for your video. For example, my remote stove failure video can be reached at this URL http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D43xN5vyXxU.

The part of the URL that is after the V= is the unique URL key for the video. It's like an address on your house or business.

So, if the URL says v=D43xN5vyXxU then you need to copy this part D43xN5vyXxU.


1. Press the Youtube button on the posting page. It's up by the buttons for font size and color.

2. You will see this code appear where your cursor is:

Code: Select all

[youtube][/youtube]
3. Now place the unique URL key for your video between the two blocks of code like this:

Code: Select all

[youtube]D43xN5vyXxU[/youtube]
I'm sorry if this is complicated but it's the only way to ad the ability to the message board.
When it's done correctly it will look like this.
