How do you post a youtube video? I've searched through the basic reply area and the advanced reply area....I can't seem to find out how.

I think you copy and paste a link to a Youtube clip & it embeds it.

I highlighted the word test, clicked on the Insert Link button, pasted the Youtube link, and posted...it embedded the clip automatically for me.

1. Go to a website with a video you want to post, example: youtube
2. Copy the URL of that video from the browser address bar, example:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1BdpL_EATyc&feature=g-all-a&context=G2665ff7FAAAAAAAAE AA

3. Paste the above URL into a text editor such as Notepad.( Delete the red part (the first & symbol and everything to the right of it).

You now have this:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1BdpL_EATyc

4. In notepad type the video html tags. As a youtube video type it like this:
[.video=youtube;][/video.]

5. Copy the blue portion and paste it after the semi-colon in the first brackets, and copy the entire green/blue URL and paste it in between the two sets of brackets.

You will now have this:

[.video=youtube;1BdpL_EATyc]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1BdpL_EATyc[/video]

Don't use any colours for the final result. Those are just put in here for emphasis

Here is one I have just posted elsewhere, using this method, but it doesn't seem to play on this particular site.

There has to be and easier way add a video than this....every other forum has a video tab to click and you just paste it in....and it works...none of this nonsense..

No you're not! Maybe just a wee amount of A.D.D.!

I suffer from it... one time I walked around my apartment looking for my car keys about 20 minutes, then realized they were in my left hand! LMAO!

OK. I'll have to keep up to date. I have been using my outlined method since XP. Never even tried the copy link option. Thanks for the heads up Core!
I have deleted my previous post - I hate out of date material - lol

This video is really for Windows 8 - for first impression only. Don't comment or take it seriously!.

A little curious, however, that the method worked on three other forums where I post, including our own Windows 8 site, but not here?

Yep, it should just be a case of pasting in the youtube link and all of the conversion is done automatically :).

That particular bbcode is likely disabled. W8forums use a different software (XF) than W7forums which uses vBulletin, so some security concerns may affect one but not the other, meaning Ian may use slightly different configurations...
