We're pleased to announce that you can now add YouTube videos to forum posts.
To do this, click the film strip icon just above the post body. This will popup a small window. Paste the YouTube link into the box and click the Insert button.
Note: The link must be to youtube.com, not the shorter youtu.be style link.
Here is the end result:

Graham BirdTo do this, click the film strip icon just above the post body.
Is that the green photo icon? The Insert Image box? I don't see another green film strip icon
Best wishes Chris

its not there now it was to the right of the image icon...twas good while it lasted lol
in chrome i've lost all the icons including the coloured bits
Has the video icon been removed?
It works perfectly well using the Green Photo icon box. Go to the YouTube Video, right click on it and "copy the Video URL", then paste it into the URL Tab of the Green Photo Icon box. I'm not sure if that worked before but it does now.
It's good to get into the habit of checking Preview to make sure it's worked before posting and that goes for photos and videos
Treat is as a photo, but use the URL Tab in the Insert Image box. It's become much more simple, and if Graham did that then it's great Graham.
Yeah i know that Chris i was just wondering why the icon had been removed it would have been so much easier for people
doggieYeah i know that Chris i was just wondering why the icon had been removed it would have been so much easier for people
It seems unnecessary to have 2 icons that both do the same job
Shane wouldn't have had to ask how to upload a video lol
maybe the icon could do with renaming from "insert image" to "insert media"
Testing the width...
My wildlife sounds and images at http://www.jerryh.net
Testing the width... result.
So the system manages to reduce the width of the embedded video to 500px - good!
However, when this same video was posted to a blog, it stayed at the standard (for YouTube) 580px, and so some of it is hidden. No so good.
Sorry - 560, not 580px.
Hello Useful post Will it work with FLiKR URLS or BBC (Bulletin Board Code) ???
