U tube - How to embed a youtube video

Postby Dalboy » 06 Apr 2015, 09:44

I just put an answer in a post that I tried to link to a u tube clip as it was easier than trying to do a write up. Any way I tried with no joy and thanks to the Mods they sorted it.
My Question is what did I do wrong or more like it how do I do it if I need to in the future.. Please keep it simple I am an idiot when it comes to computers I tend to fumble my way through but normally manage to get where I want.
Thanks in advance guys

The easiest method seems to be as follows

1) Find the youtube clip and copy the sequence after the =

eg https://www.youtube.c0m/watch?v=zNXuYlwI8N0

2) Select the youtube button, located at the far right of the buttons under the Subject box of a new topic, and the following appears

[youtube][/youtube]

3) Position your cursor between the closed bracket ] after the first youtube and the open bracket [ in front of /youtube

4) Paste the sequence you copied from youtube between the open and closed brackets et voila

Derek, A useful tip I use on forums is when I see a feature I want to copy/use etc, I use the quote button which shows you the underlying code and then you can imitate it for your application.

DONT hit post, but just use "back" on your browser.

BTW I see from the moderator Log it was Andy who edited your post - he is our you tube man!

LOL...mine and Andy's crossed in the ether and I hadn't even noticed the YT button. It might be less confusing if you delete mine mods....Andy's is far more appropriate I think.
