How do I post youtube content?

Postby phpbb » Wed Dec 22, 2010 10:31 am

The long awaited secret will now be revealed:

When you are posting to the site, you can add a link to allow youtube videos to be embedded into the site. The basic theory is as follows:

1> Find Youtube you want to add. The URL will look like this:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kffacxfA7G4

Sometimes the URLs are not so pretty:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kffacxfA ... w5KpACPsEc

But they all share one thing in common, and that is somewhere in the URL is : v=kffacxfA7G4

The only information needed to post video is are the digits after the "v=" (and before the & if it exists).

So, we need the "kffacxfA7G4"

2> Now that you have the video id, click on the button at the far right on the toolbar labeled "youtube":

This will appear
Code: Select all
[youtube][/youtube]


place the Id inside the tags:
Code: Select all
[youtube]kffacxfA7G4[/youtube]


and it will work. placing anything other than the ID within the youtube tags will NOT Work! No URLs, no nothing, just the ID.

PS - the youtube tags needed to be embedded within the code tags so that it didn't cause the site to create the content. If i did not do this, an empty youtube video would have been embedded.

PPS - feel free to test it in this thread.
