Posting YouTube video's on this Forum

Ryex:
Just use Youtube Tags: [youtube]9u0EL_u4nvw[/youtube]



--- Quote from: Old way ---Despite the fact that there is no YouTube button it is still possible to embed YouTube videos in your posts.

using the Flash BBCode you can embed the YouTube player object like you would in an html page but you only need the link to the player. This link is NOT the same as the link to the video but it does share the same video ID in the URL.

to get the link to the player open the embed option on the video page
(click to show/hide) (click to show/hide)
Then copy the HTML embed code
(click to show/hide)
The code will look something like this.
(click to show/hide)
--- Code: ---<object width="420" height="315"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/bgthOv9IQ-E?version=3&amp;hl=en_US"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/bgthOv9IQ-E?version=3&amp;hl=en_US" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="420" height="315" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object>
--- End code ---

but the only important part is the URL inside the code
(click to show/hide)
--- Code: ---value="http://www.youtube.com/v/bgthOv9IQ-E?version=3&amp;hl=en_US"
--- End code ---

now simply put that URL inside some flash BBCode
(click to show/hide)
--- Code: ---[flash=420,315]http://www.youtube.com/v/bgthOv9IQ-E?version=3&amp;hl=en_US[/flash]
--- End code ---

and you have a YouTube video embedded in your post
(click to show/hide)http://www.youtube.com/v/bgthOv9IQ-E?version=3&amp;hl=en_US
you can change the width and height of the embedded video by changing the numbers in the flash BBCode [flash=420,315] means the embedded video will be 420 pixels wide by 315 pixels tall

Now that you know how to embed YouTube videos in your posts I expect you NOT to abuse it. Treat them like images and under the forum rules spoiler them.

Enjoy.

Useful post. :)

Another way to do it, is this:
1. Take a normal YouTube link from the address bar:

--- Code: ---http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g6I8Fc3kw60&feature=relmfu
--- End code ---
2.
Remove this from it:

--- Code: ---watch?v=
--- End code ---
3.
Replace with:

--- Code: ---v/
--- End code ---
Giving you a result like this;

--- Code: ---http://www.youtube.com/v/g6I8Fc3kw60&feature=relmfu
--- End code ---
4.
Once all of that is done, you have your video(of course, you must use flash tags. see Ryex's post):

Minecraft Mod Videos + Tutorial on posting Youtube Videos =] (I did an Internet search at the time and took many attempts to get a bbcode that would work...)

Blizzard:
I guess I should add some youtube tags. ._. But Branden's way seems quick and easy enough.

EDIT: So liek, I added the Youtube tags.
