How to Embed Youtube Videos
« on: July 18, 2013, 03:59:47 PM »
Hi Everyone,

PI2C asked how to embed Youtube videos. This is the procedure:

When creating a new post, you will see a button with the icon .... Click it. Once clicked you will see in your post the following:

Code: [Select]
[flash=200,200][/flash]
You can change the 200,200 values above to increase/decrease the size of your video to suit your needs.

Now copy the video URL you want to post. You should have something like:

Code: [Select]
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5e6m0VbgSGc
You will need to slightly edit the URL to work. This is how you do it:

Paste the URL between:

Code: [Select]
[flash=200,200]
and

Code: [Select]
[/flash]
Now replace “watch?v=” in the URL with “v/’ and your final string should look like this:

Code: [Select]
[flash=200,200]http://www.youtube.com/v/5e6m0VbgSGc[/flash]
Which will give you a result like this:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/5e6m0VbgSGc" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/5e6m0VbgSGc</a>

Increasing the:

Code: [Select]
[flash=200,200]
to

Code: [Select]
[flash=400,400]
Will give you this:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/5e6m0VbgSGc" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/5e6m0VbgSGc</a>

Now play my Youtube submission and thank me later for enlightening you...  :D

The old embed codes work, but many new Youtube videos now use <iframe> and the old flash embed code is not available.
