In our ongoing effort to keep things simple on the Forum, I have added YouTube and Google Video tools for your posting pleasure. You can still add videos using the original method, but for YouTube and Google videos, there's a quick and easy method, too.
The Easy Way
Browse to the YouTube video you want to include in your post and grab the YouTube video id--the string of characters after the "v=" and before the "&" in the URL. In the following URL, the video id is: xM62KcCvwPQ
Code: Select all
Click the YouTube button on the tool bar in the Edit Post editor. Paste the copied video id between the two YouTube tags like this:
Poof! You have a YouTube video in your post. Click the Preview button to test it.
If you have any tips, comments, or issues, post away.
It's not a bug. It's a feature.
