The embed code given on the video page isn't the right one.

The proper code is:

[youtube ]the number & letter combo at the end of the video link[ /youtube] -------- (without the spaces in the [] though)


-----


For example, the way to show this video ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VlMEGBsw6j8 ) is:



CODE
[youtube]VlMEGBsw6j8[/youtube]

Can anyone tell me what I have to do to post the video?

[ youtube ] [ /youtube ]

take the spaces out from around the word

for example, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dMH0bHeiRNg

insert everything in the youtube link that comes after v= in between the brackets in the code and it should work

I'll show you an example for how to do a youtube video, but IDK any other websites. happy.gif

If the video you wanted to post was this one : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T62ksehioSA
You take everything after /watch?v= and copy it, then post it in the code. So the codes for embedding that video would be
CODE
[youtube]T62ksehioSA[/youtube]

It would appear like this :

Hope that makes sense! happy.gif flowers.gif

CODE
[youtube]pastecodehere[/youtube]


The "code" being what is after the = part of the youtube link. For example, the code for this link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8olcB4nseH8 would be the 8olcB4nseH8 part.

So it would look like this:
CODE
[youtube]8olcB4nseH8[/youtube]


And turn into this:

I think it's [ YouTube ] then the link, then [ /YouTube ] minus the spaces but I could be completely wrong.
