Youtube inserts

Post by admin » Thu Dec 29, 2011 7:12 pm

I have now added youtube as an embedded BBC Code. If you look above the post that you are creating, you will see the familiar B i u Quote, ect. and then below that line is youtube.

If you have a youtube account, you can embed your own video without a lot of hassle. The main part you are concerned with is the ID of the video and not all that "stuff" that comes with the embedded.

Using my own youtube account, I can show a demo.

If you share a video usually youtube will have a button that says SHARE. Click on that and you will see below YOUR video something like : http://youtu.be/lGRjLfij2q0

Or

if you click on embed, then you might see some code like this:
<iframe width="420" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/lGRjLfij2q0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

You DO NOT need all this stuff. There is only one thing that you need and that is highlighted in RED
lGRjLfij2q0 This is YOUR video ID

now, click on the youtube BBC Code at top and you will see this : "[youtube][/youtube]"

Now, put your lGRjLfij2q0 between the "[youtube][/youtube]" (Look at what I have underlined)

and it should turn out like this:

I suggest just trying and see. The "youtube" button that you see above this sentence on the left took a while for me to figure out how to add it.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SzY44cOS7yw here is a pasted link easy to do !
All you do is goto the You tube Video you want to copy on the explorer bar copy the address and than paste it into the message like I just did takes a few seconds to do ! No Problems !
To put the actual video on the page that is another issue ! That would be based on your program Corel !
