Thumbs up How to embed YouTube Videos

I found it very confusing to embed videos from Youtube onto the forum, Hopefully this should help any of you who are stuck.

I used to think you had to use the whole embed code YouTube provided for your video, but that doesn't work.

Step 1: Go to the video you want to embed on your forum post,


Step 2: Go to the address bar then copy the text after the = ,



Step 3: Then you go to your post's text box (on Advanced mode) And click on the Youtube Tag button (With the youtube logo on it),


Then Paste the text you copied from the address bar earlier inside the two YouTube tags,


Then click post and there is your video embedded in your post!



Here is a 'proper' example:


I hope this helps

Thanks
I was trying to work out what the youtube tags needed between them (after the youtube embedding code failed) and this made it a lot easier

Thanks! Very useful I wish I'd seen this earlier because I went around bugging other members and asking how to do it
