TIP: How to embed YouTube videos
« on: December 18, 2007, 12:53:12 PM »
Rather than just posting a link to a video on YouTube, it's quick and easy to embed the video right here, so people can watch without leaving magicforum!

Step 1: Copy the video URL link

On YouTube, click Share below the video player then click the Options drop-down arrow. Tick the Long link box and then copy the resulting link from the box above (Right Click -> Copy on a Windows PC).

Step 2: Paste the video URL into your post on magicforum

Now jump back to your message and simply paste the URL in (Right Click -> Paste on a Windows PC).

Step 3: Add the tags around it

Here's the important part: To indicate a video embed, you just need to add tags before and after the URL.

Here's how it should look:

Code: [Select]
[YouTube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9IixoclQKmU[/YouTube]
Which will return this in your post:



Et voilà - your URL is embedded as a watch-able video in your message!

YouTube embeds on magicforum are now bigger and in widescreen!

You don't need to do anything differently, all videos posted on the site between [YouTube] tags will now automatically be displayed using the updated embed code.

Test:

You can now also embed Vimeo videos directly in your posts on magicforum!

The code should simply look like this:

Code: [Select]
[Vimeo]http://vimeo.com/21118111[/Vimeo]You can use the "Vimeo" button in the Edit Post toolbar to quickly add the tags around your link.
