Exclamation *NEW* Embed YouTube Videos!

Added a new feature to the forum, you can now embed YouTube videos into posts / threads.

It's really simple to do as well

To do it, simply:

Visit: http://www.youtube.com and find a video that you would like to share with the community.

Then, look at the URL of your video:

Code:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=by8oyJztzwo
In the URL above you'll notice after "youtube.com" it goes "watch?v=by8oyJztzwo". Copy the string of random characters after "v=" as shown in bold. Also in the image below.



Wrap the youtube bbcode around that string of characters and it will post your selected video in the post!

Code:
{youtube}CODE HERE{/youtube}
Replace { and } with [ and ]

It will show like so:

[youtube]by8oyJztzwo[/youtube]

If you have any questions, feel free to post.

Enjoy!

That kid is good. Someone you know Mark?

Well I have just completed my first PDF E-Course, which is 10 embedded lessons from the Router Workshop Video Series. This is a must have PDF that you can get some very good pointers on how to use the router. Get your FREE copy here!

You need to wrap your code #'s with []. Again, use the square brackets [] and not the {} as shown by Mark...

By " EMBED" videos... do you mean that each time someone clicks on a thread that video will start loading ? I am on a slow dialup and that would make me have to avoid a thread like that... having a " LINK" to the video would be much better for people like me...

The video won't load until you click "Play"

Still on dial-up? Wow, I figured service providers didn't even offer that anymore

Mark,
Don't underestimate the resistance of some people to spend money. Can you spell
" C H E A P " ? LOL
Just 25 years ago when we moved out here a PRIVATE line was not available... we shared a line with some stranger... who happened to have a teenage daughter... bummer...
I only pay $10 a month for the ISP and have only owned a cell phone for three months....
Fiber optic has gotten to the town three miles from here... but I don't have cable TV either so bunching it with that is not possible either... when I need something fast I take my laptop to the library WIFI... thank goodness for that service...
