    Inserting a YouTube Video

    I apologize if this has been asked before, but I used the search button and scanned through this sub-forum and didn't find an answer.

    How do you insert a YouTube video where the video is viewable within the post? Currently, I just copy and paste the address bar from YouTube, but it just shows up as a link.

    Thanks in advance for your assistance.

    Basically, you take the URL of the video and surround it with the VIDEO tags (inside of brackets). Just like you turn on/off bold with the open-B and close-B tags, you insert a video with the open-video and close-video tags.

    Or you can click on the Insert Video icon on the icon bar above your post. It's the icon immediately to the right of the Insert Image icon, to the left of the Quote-Text icon.

    This one ...

    Click on <reply with quote> on any post you see special bold/italics/whatever in that post. Look through the resulting code that displays and you'll see a variety of tags surrounding the text in question.

    Specifically, consider BOLD and what it does. You've got to tell the computer to turn ON the bolding, then have the words come along, then tell the computer to turn OFF the bolding. Like this: [ B ] the words to bold, here [ /B ]. But it's actually done without those spaces between the brackets. Those things inside the brackets are called tags. There are lots of them in the BB language.

    Here's a link from a search in the FAQ section that describes tags: click.

    That is a very good holster, BTW, but the guy in the video, well......


    Unless that's you, Calvito, in which case he is suave, smooth and debonair


    *Edit 2 - Ha! Just saw your other post on this tool

    Calvito:

    Try this. Ensure your <settings> have the "enhanced" formatting controls turned on.

    <settings>
    <general settings>
    <miscellaneous options>: standard editor - extra formatting controls.

    Be sure to save the changes.


    It's been forever since I had this setting set, that I can't recall what it was like prior to that. Perhaps that's what controls things. Technically, adding a video, bolding, italics or anything else is "editing" your text. So, perhaps "extra" editing controls will get it right.

    Hot diggity! Thanks for the help everyone! It worked on my laptop. Does this mean I can't post videos like this from my phone? No big deal if not.

    And, Stoveman, you almost made me choke on my Mac & Cheese.

    Should be no problem as long as you don't use the mobile link. I used my iPad for my previous post.
