All,

I am seeing a lot of links to youtube videos rather than having them embedded in the message. I fear that there is confusion on how to embed youtube videos. Hopefully this will clear the air.

Most often, youtube links appears in their entirety as http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h_OfmgQy ... B0C683670D, or something similar to this.

The only part we care about when embedding the video is the actual video ID, which appears after "/watch?v=" and before "&playnext=1 ..." in this case. The video ID for this link is "h_OfmgQyI5E". This is the only part of the link we care about in order to embed the video.

So, if you look at the link above, to embed the video you would post the following code:

Code:
[youtube]h_OfmgQyI5E[/youtube]


You can also click on the youtube link at the top, below the B and i. That will make the following code appear:

Code:
[youtube][/youtube]


Then, just paste the video ID between the youtube tags.

The result will look like this:




Also, if you manually type the code out, you can embed the videos from the Quick Reply box instead of the full editor.

Hope this helps clear up how to use this feature.
