Here's how you embed YouTube videos in your posts.

  • Go to YouTube and copy the URL of the clip you want to embed from your browser's address bar. Here's some examples:
    Code:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xEhaVhta7sI
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H6S57powgxA
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oOzqIsksmdI
  • On the "Full editor" posting page (not quick reply), click on the youtube2 button on the bottom right of the BBCode buttons that are above the box where you type your message.
  • Paste the URL between the tags and delete everything except the clip identifier, which is the series of eleven numbers, letters and symbols after "?v=".
  • So, to embed the above three clips, you should have:
    Code:
    [youtube2]xEhaVhta7sI[/youtube2]
    [youtube2]H6S57powgxA[/youtube2]
    [youtube2]oOzqIsksmdI[/youtube2]
  • And that's it, when you click submit the video will be embedded in your post.

Edit: I've seen a few posts that have slightly different URLs for youtube videos. There seem to be a few things added after the clip identifier. So, to clarify, the clip identifier is always after "v=" and is eleven characters, so anything after those eleven characters should also be deleted. Also, seen a few shortened URLs, but the same thing applies: they'll always have that set of eleven numbers, letters and sometimes underscore, just find them and stick them between the youtube2 tags. You can always preview your post before submitting it to see if what you've done works.

Edit2: If you've used a URL shortener then the clip identifier should be after the last / in your URL.

No worries, been meaning to do something like this for a while. I need to fix the iPlayer tags so they work, then I'll do a little tutorial on that as well. The trouble is, all these sites periodically change their embed codes, so I have to go back and change the HTML that generates the BBCode. :|
