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.

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

Now jump back to your message and simply paste the URL in.

Step 3: Add the tags around it

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

Here's how it should look:

Code: [Select]
[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9IixoclQKmU[/youtube]
Note the forward slash on the closing tag.

Which will return this in your post:



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