Embedding Videos in your Posts

PostPosted by Hoovie » Tue Dec 10, 2013 11:56 am

Want to put a video stream into a post? well, dead simple at the RAV4 Drivers Club :s_yes

For YouTube Videos, get the video stream information - this will be in the address bar in your web browser when you click it (if you don't click it, it will typically just say "www.youtube.com/watch", but when you click on it, the full address will appear, e.g. "http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ei86lbXUFiM" )

The important bit is the Video ID, which is the text after the v= bit i.e. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ei86lbXUFiM

Copy that code into your post and select it, so it looks like this: Ei86lbXUFiM

Then click on the "youtube" button, which is on the menu button strip above the posting window on the right and you will see the following: [youtube ]Ei86lbXUFiM[/youtube] and that's it!

and when you Preview or Post your message, you will see the video embedded :good:



Very easy to do and will take a 10th of the time to do then it did to read this post :s_wink
Enjoy!
