I feel silly, how to I embed a YouTube video?

#1 Postby robert » Fri May 18, 2012 3:33 pm

I know I run this forum but I can't even figure out how to imbed a YouTube video like so many of you do.

Rather than a link like this:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UEKDozT0 ... re=related - I want to to show up as an image you can watch on the forum.

Can someone give me simple steps like:

Step 1.

Step 2.

Step 3.

Thanks!

The link should be a short link, like this - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c81b74mJ2RQ

In the link you posted, remove the & symbol and everything after it, so it's like this - http://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&v=zFXczzxWwRU

[youtube] http://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&v=zFXczzxWwRU [/youtube] (no spaces)

How do I naturally get it to that point?

Or do I have to edit the URL every time I want to embed a video?

On the youtube page, there is a "share" link under the video. Click that, then underneath click on options and choose "long link". That's the link you need to use on the forum.

Ahhhh, gotcha!

I thought it might have something to do with the share link. I always just copied the URL, but now I do recall this step.

It had been years since I tried to embed a YouTube video and I know this forum lost that function for a while, but I'm glad to now know.

Thanks sosso!

Thanks for this thread, everybody. Every forum format seems to be different and I gave up trying to memorize them all. Now that I know how to work this one, I'll post more You Tube stuff.
