NEW YOUTUBE TAG, Jan. 14th, 2008 The new youtube tag is easier to use than the previous one (read the spoiler box below). Just put the video code between the tags. For example: to include this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CZcNWUzxpUo All you need is the CZcNWUzxpUo part. Code: [youtube]CZcNWUzxpUo[/youtube] Result: Enjoy! [titleld post by mthrnite] Many people haven't gotten the hang of the YOUTUBE tags for embedding video in their posts. Here's a quick explanation: Find a vid you like on www.youtube.com and copy what's in your browser's address bar, here I found one. Code: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WAEk9ZDJUI4&mode=related&search= Now, notice this part, between the v= and the mode= watch?v=WAEk9ZDJUI4&mode=related&search= That's the identifier for the vid. There isn't always a mode= part at the end, only if you got to the vid indirectly. The identifier lives in the "v" directory on YouTube, so, here comes the surgery... 1. Highlight and delete the watch? on the left side of the v 2. Highlight the = on the right side of the v and type a / to replace it. 3. Highlight and delete mode=blablabla if it's there at all, all the way to the end of the line. 4. Now all that's left to do is to surround it in the YOUTUBE tags. Here's a quick visual rundown: Code: This: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WAEk9ZDJUI4&mode=related&search= Becomes this: [YOUTUBE]http://www.youtube.com/v/WAEk9ZDJUI4&[/YOUTUBE] Make sure you Preview Post before you Submit Post, the YouTube vid should show up in your preview. If all is well, submit that thang and share your good taste with the world! If you've found an easier way to do this or have any questions, let me know here. I'm gonna sticky this topic for the time being.
