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 "", but when you click on it, the full address will appear, e.g. "" )

The important bit is the Video ID, which is the text after the v= bit i.e.

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
