Jen recently added a "youtube" bbcode to the board. If you know what a bbcode is, you know what to do. If you have no clue what a bbcode is, read on for how to embed youtube videos "the new way".

1) Copy youtube URL to your virtual clipboard ( right click the link and "copy link location" )
2) Bring yourself back here and figure out where you want to post the video
3) Paste the URL
Example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v63wUOqQQwU
Example: https://youtu.be/v63wUOqQQwU

4) Delete all of the video URL except for the video ID
This is the video ID: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v63wUOqQQwU
This is the video ID: https://youtu.be/v63wUOqQQwU

4a) This is the video ID after deleting the rest: v63wUOqQQwU

5) Put [youtube]v63wUOqQQwU[/youtube] tags on either end.

6) Profit

This method works everywhere on the board.


The following method does not work in all areas of the board and is not supported


1) Go to youtube
2) find video
3) go to video's page
4) click on "Share" (under video)
5) click "Embed"
Copy the code
Example:


6) Paste code here.

Can't think of all of them at the moment.

You'll know when you paste the embed code and hit "preview" and the embed code still shows as text.

Survival & Preparedness is one of the subforums where embedding isn't enabled.

cuz i tried ( here ) to do YouTube with some tag ... and only "embed" worked ...

Just want to be sure.

i didn't try to enable regular embed with [yt], [youtube] tags... just wanted to know if YouTube videos will be played that way .. and they didn't

at places where it's possible to play YouTube videos with some sort of youtube tag - the displayed video is generally smaller in size (4 by 3 or something like that) than if using "embed" method

There are at least 3 subforums here where video embedding is not enabled.

I tried everything in this post still doesn't work. I have posted videos before. This seems to go right along with having changed my browser over to Google Chrome.

The "blank page on preview" is common and occurs every time many of us embed a video here.

Clicking "Submit" may cause it to show up in your browser, and if it doesn't, reloading the page (maybe more than once) will do the trick.

The above only goes for subforums where video embedding is allowed.

IIRC this doesn't work from a phone. something about the embed code not showing up.
