    Posting YouTube Videos

    Many of post YouTube Video clips. The clips appear on the screen in your posts, not the website reference. How do you do that? I have posted a couple YouTube videos, but I copy the web address and paste that into my post so all that is there is a link, not the ready to view video.

    Thanks for you help.

    In the url of the video, there will be near the end a string value. Look for "v=kjD_iEr" as an example. Copy the string after the = sign, and paste it between the youtube tags: [ youtube]kjD_iEr[ /youtube]

    Remove the leading spaces I used within the youtube tags.

    Ex:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ipxPn7rgJ_Q

    In the url above, you would copy and paste "ipxPn7rgJ_Q" between the youtube tags, without the quotes.

    an even easier way than that to me is to use Youtube's "Embed" feature.

    Up under each video on Youtube there is a Share button. Click on Share and then click on Embed and then copy the stuff highlighted in blue and come back here and paste it in the subject of the message.

    *this DOES NOT work any longer* Pasting the embed code between the youtube tags works also.
