How to Embed YouTube Videos

To embed a youtube video, you will have to have the URL for the specific video. You will cut out the code that follows the equals sign in the URL, and then paste that code into your post between youtube tags.

Example:

URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J0NPr5uTUno

I have bolded that code in the URL. Copy and paste this code into youtube tags.

You take "J0NPr5uTUno" and put it between [youtube][/youtube*] (Minus the *)

It will look like this without the asterik.

[youtube]J0NPr5uTUno[/youtube*]

The end result will be your video embedded into a post.



If you have any other questions or anything to add, feel free to PM me or post it here in this thread.

Yay, finally someone made a sticky about this. I feel like everybody kept asking how to do it.

"Corazon de un Leon"

To whomever keeps deleting my sig, the size is 408x220 the rules state it must be smaller than 420x220, thus i am not breaking the rules.

A lot of people knew how to embed at one point, but then the way to do it changed and threw a lot of people off.

Great idea for a thread hit. Might even add how to post a picture.

I for one found it so frustrating trying to embed a video that I just gave up after a while

Is there a way to post pictures without having to save them to photobucket or something similar?

Sort of like a copy and paste or somethin?

Do you mean like pictures from the internet or from your computer?

From your computer - go to the advanced post section and pick the attachments button. From there upload your photo and close the attachments window.

Hope it helps, did the best explanation i could.

Not from your own HDD no, but if you find a picture on a website that you'd like to use in here, just right click it, copy the pictures address and then click the "insert image" button in you post... Insert link and that's it

If I'd like the logo from google.com here this is how it works:

google.com/images/logos/ps_logo2.png

This is the address of the picture, then you click the Insert Image button and insert that link:

[IMG]http://www.google.com/images/logos/ps_logo2.png[/IMG*]

Should look like this, only without the star. Removing the star from the above line looks like this:

I think it would be cool if a admin could change the default resolution of the youtube embed code to something bigger,
so that it would make watching the video directly in mmaf page a confortable experience instead of forcing us to open the youtube link in a new page.
