How to best embed youtube in posts
« on: September 30, 2011, 01:49:53 PM »
 ok so I've worked out how to get vids from you tube to show up.

goto the video you want to embed on you tube
 
 copy the address from the addresss bar
 
 e.g http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E8fSk1Zboqg&feature=autoplay&list=PL3BBA1185546B94C7&lf=results_video&playnext=4
 
 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E8fSk1Zboqg (the rest after this is just shit)
 
 now slightly modify this address to http://www.youtube.com/v/E8fSk1Zboqg
 
 now push the flash insert button and insert your modified You tube address into the brackets.
 
 change the size, i suggest 480 by 360

END RESULT:
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/E8fSk1Zboqg" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/E8fSk1Zboqg</a>
 
 I know this is no solution for the average joe to use but I thought I'd post the info anyways
 
 cheers
