Cool Quick tip about Youtube links...

Hey, folks. For those of you who weren't aware, you can embed youtube clips directly into your posts instead of just providing the link.

Note, however, that whatever you embed will still have to comply with the TOU/rules of the road.

To do this you only need the youtube ID of the vid. When you look at a youtube link a typical URL is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t7ujYl1fzhY

To get the clip ID, strip off all of the URL except the trailing "random" characters. In other words, what follows the "v=" part is the actual clip ID. In the above example it is "t7ujYl1fzhY"

To embed the video, use youtube bookends around the clip ID.

Examine this to see what you need to do:
PHP Code:
[youtube]insertCLIPidHERE[/youtube
[
youtube]t7ujYl1fzhY[/youtube

Doing that with the ID in this sample (second in the example above) yields:



I also centered that one because it sets the video out a bit from the text. I hope you enjoy this feature, it works really well -- at least if not done to excess.

If you're struggling with it a bit, I encourage you to use the test forum until you're comfortable with this; after all, that's what it's there for. :thumbsup:

Take care and, as always, enjoy the ride.
Greg

This method no longer works.

Is there another way to embed youtube vids?

Seems to work perfectly, perhaps too much time in the pub for you???

All I got when I tried to post those vids a few days ago was a link, the embedding didn't work, wonder why?


Thanks for fixing the post BTW.

It seems to work for me fine. Maybe you missed one of the steps to make it work. Just make sure you don't use the whole URL, only the trailing "random" characters. The one you posted here and deleted the other day was done properly BTW
