How to embed a Youtube video on the forum

Postby royjess » Sat Jul 29, 2017 9:07 am

You may notice that as I've been replacing my photobucket pics, I've also been embedding my you tube video.

Here is how I'm doing it.

Copy the full web address from the tool bar (not the shorten link code that is given when you first upload the video) and paste. If you post you will just see the youtube link and will need to click on the link to view the video,

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oqvKL9EQtqg

However if you make all the following changes to the address bar video link, you will then be able to embed your video's

You will have a flash tab in your reply post, you can either scroll over the youtube address and then click on the flash tab, or you can click on the flash tab first and then paste the youtube address in-between, I've also added space's in the flash bracket to stop the youtube video from embedding, you won't need to do this. I've also posted the example twice with each example, the first one highlighting what needs to be deleted, and the second with what has been added in it's place

[flash =]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oqvKL9EQtqg[/ flash]

Next delete the word and question mark watch?

[flash =]https://www.youtube.com/watch?=v=oqvKL9EQtqg[/ flash]

[flash =]https://www.youtube.com/v=oqvKL9EQtqg[/ flash]

Replace the = with a /

[flash =]https://www.youtube.com/v=oqvKL9EQtqg[/ flash]

[flash =]https://www.youtube.com/v/oqvKL9EQtqg[/ flash]

Add the following in the flash bracket after the = 425,350 (or another figure to change the size of the embed)

[flash =425,350]https://www.youtube.com/v/oqvKL9EQtqg[/ flash]

and post

Hi Penny, if you try again and don't edit it, I'll take a look at what you are posting and can advise where you are going wrong

I honestly dont think the issue is with me. Are my settings different, perhaps because Im new. This is what Im trying to ask. Its not the code Im using, as this is what happens when I quote someone elses post

I don’t think your settings should be any different. I’ll check

Hi Penny,

I've just checked, and there is a problem with your permissions. I'll try to get it sorted out over the next day or two. However, I notice that Youtube no longer support flash embedded videos :angry-banghead:

I’ve found the problem. It seems that flash is disabled by default for all forums. (Doesnt apply to moderators tho)
I’ve enabled it here and in the Routemaster section.

Sorry Mark, I never realise that it was only the mods that can use the flash.

I think its kind of you to disable it on the certain sections to allow Penny to embed his videos.

No worries Casper. I hadn’t realised either. It no problem to switch it on where it’s wanted.
