PostSubject: How to add youtube videos directly to post.   Mon Nov 03, 2008 8:15 pm

OK, I just thaught I would make a little tut on how to do this since I posted that Top Thrill Dragster Video.

I'll be using this video as an example.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1LIOpEC7s1I

OK, so let's say I want to put this video in my post. I would look over at the information panel on the side of the video and find "embed". You could hit the gear too if you want to customize it (I did for this tutorial, and made it green). When your done with your customizations, type this
Code:
[embed-flash(w,h)]
Now check and see what the width and heigh is of the video by looking in the embed box.

now with what you've typed out, replace the w with the actual width number, then for the h, do the same, except with the height.

OK, now the next part may be a little tricky for some beginners with code. To make it a lot easier, we are going to paste the entire embed box into our address bar, but don't press enter. Now find the words "embed src", and there should be a url after it with quotes around it. It will look like this for the video I'm using...

So as you can see, I highlighted everything inside the quotes, and make sure you don't accidentally highlight one of the quotations.

Now i'm going to copy and paste what was highlighted directly after the bracket of what we have typed so far. So for the video i'm going to post, I should have this typed so far...
Code:
[embed-flash(425,344)]http://www.youtube.com/v/1LIOpEC7s1I&hl=en&fs=1&rel=0&color1=0x234900&color2=0x4e9e00

Now, to top it all off, just add a
Code:
[/flash]
tag to the end, so you should result in something similar to this when your completely done:
Code:
[embed-flash(425,344)]http://www.youtube.com/v/1LIOpEC7s1I&hl=en&fs=1&rel=0&color1=0x234900&color2=0x4e9e00[/flash]

And when your done typing that out, it will hopefully result in the youtube video you chose.

Enjoy these tips (and the video {which is voices of liberty at the USA Plaza in Epcot} Wink ) cheers
PM me if you need help or if you can't understand anything, or incase the code doesn't show fully, that happens with some internet browsers.
