you tube vids on forum

Recommended Posts

I have recently tried to add a few videos from you tube to share but all that posted was the link and not a video window like so many others do. Now I have done this in the past successfully but obviously I am not doing it correctly now -

click share on you tube and it gives me a link, copy link and post on forum, right?

where am I screwing up?

Don't try to do the embed stuff. Just copy/paste the URL of the YouTube video. Copy/Paste link from one of the videos in your channel.

If memory serves, I used to use the toggle off button on the tool bar, paste, then turn back on. but I don't see that option anymore.

Thank you admin but as you can see from post #3 that is exactly what I did. Copy from within you tube and one was the IE url.

I have not tried to make them a link. copy, then paste on the forum right where you would normally type a message.

Ill try again - Youtube>share>copy URL>paste here:

Here is the IE URL>copy>paste here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tzbdACbFjG4

well that did not work.

again, thanks for the help. Wonder if this new forum is not as IE friendly as it first seemed? Admin, may I ask what browser you are using since you had no problems adding my video?

ok, let me try firefox on this thread

Ha Ha! works. So now we know, IE still doesnt play nice with the forum - better, but not all the way.

Admin, The on/off toggle that the old forum had (between avatar and eraser), is it still around on this new forum?

Remind me what on/off you are referring to.

In the reply tool bar, i believe it was top most left, between your avatar and the little eraser. It was a little toggle switch that would deactivate the tool bar (i guess). It was the only way I was able to use quotes, post links, and videos - and still use IE.

I m sorry, I don't seem to have "source" in the reply tool bar.  17 buttons from bold to size, no source.

When you copy and paste the URL you need to delete the "s" on the https:// part.

Why is that?  what is the "s" for?.. does it not work for everyone that way?

Is there a way to make the video smaller on the forums? They come out huge...
