Adding the Video Player from YouTube to your post

Post by Mike Carey » Mon Jan 09, 2012 10:01 am

It isn't very intuitive to add the YouTube player to a forum post. I was fortunate that another member posted how to do it.

First, on the YouTube page for the video there is a link to "share". Click on that and copy the code.

Second, on our forum post form on the far right is a code box that says "youtube". Click on it and this appears in your post:

[youtube][/youtube]

Now, take the share code you copied, in this example it's:

http://youtu.be/p-Qhx-RjnLs" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Remove all the code except what comes after the "/":

p-Qhx-RjnLs

This code is placed in-between the [youtube][/youtube] brackets:
(with no spacing between the brackets though)
[youtube] p-Qhx-RjnLs [/youtube]

And Ta Da!

Then after it starts to play, you can click on the vid and it'll open into the YouTube page, and you can then click on the icon to make it a full screen vid.

New software, it probably works different now instead of what worked in 2012. Maybe Aaron or Mike can revisit this.
