    you start with this, youtube with open and closing brackets then you need the text that identifies the video witch for the one below is, ztoSUhbNntQ then you close with this, /youtube again with open and closing brackets and no spaces. The text that identifies the video are the characters after the equals sign in the youtube url when you put all three of these together with the opening and closing brackets and no spaces you get the video below I will PM you the text but it may not show up it may just display the video

    But if a person presses your explanation "reply with Quote", they will see what you typed. I saw it anyway and thought about explaining it by substituting {} for [] until I realized the easier way.
    I have had periodic paralysis all my life. I lost my ability to walk in 2011 beginning with a spinal block, which was used for a hip fracture caused by periodic paralysis.

    You can also just use the "insert video" icon under the "Quick Reply" or "Go Advanced" option for your original message or reply...



    Simply insert the URL for the video into the pop-up window that this shows. It is the little green icon that looks like a short strip of film.

    you can do it in text mode only also, and it work like this: from the youtube link, copy the "v" param and paste it between youtube tags.
    For example this is the original link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P71ex1OybJY and this P71ex1OybJY is the part I was talking about

    step 1:

    Check your forum Settings:

    Miscellaneous Options

    Message Editor Interface:
    • Enhanced Interface - Full WYSIWYG Editing
    • Basic Editor - A simple text box
    • Standard Editor - Extra formatting controls


    You need to be sure that you have checked Enhanced settings, not one of the other two.
