YouTube video embedding instructions

Postby Jay » Thu Nov 11, 2010 9:09 am

To embed a YouTube video in your post, follow the instructions below:

—QUICK INSTRUCTIONS—
Copy the "v" value from the querystring of the URL and past it between the "youtube" BBCode tags.

—DETAILED INSTRUCTIONS—
1) Find the URL of the video in the address bar of your browser. It will look something like this:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C6FUKcCP7dA
or this:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C6FUKcCP ... re=channel
(Ignore the "Embed" button on the YouTube page which will give you extraneous code.)

2) Copy the value of the "v" parameter in the querystring of the URL (the querystring is everything after the question mark). The value will only contain alphanumeric characters. The value from the sample URL above is highlighted in red below:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C6FUKcCP7dA&feature=channel
Note that the "v" value is everything after "v=" and before any subsequent ampersands (&).

3) Click the "youtube" button above the textarea of your post. It will insert BBCode that looks like this:
[.youtube][/youtube.].

4) Paste the "v" value between the two tags like this:
[.youtube]C6FUKcCP7dA[/youtube.]

After clicking "Preview" or "Submit", you should see the video embedded in your post.
