Question How do I Post a YouTube Video here at The Bard's "World Famous!" Coliseumô ???

Okay, this is my first attempt at adding BBCode to the forum, so it's a tad crude at the moment. I had to do it while the Bard was asleep because he would stress out at the thought of someone foolin' with the workin' parts

Anyhow, this is just a first pass, to get it running (and see if I can do it...). I will be making some refinements in the near future, such as a button on the edit page (posting page) so you don't have to type the code in, and so forth...
Here is how you post a video from YouTube. It's really very simple.

The tags are [ youtube ] and [ /youtube ] (no spaces in there, though)

You need only the part of the youtube address that is in red below:

http://youtu.be/WIGSC1MXjCI

So, all you need to do to post the above video is to post this (with no spaces, I got them so you can see the code)

[ youtube ] WIGSC1MXjCI [ /youtube ]

The result should give you this:




Enjoy!

Hmmm, I tried posting a video from youtube and it didn't work. I tried several different ways and nothing. I followed your directions and inserted your red letter quote and that worked fine. I noticed your original example left out the ".com" and a slash or sumpin', and I'm wonderin' if therein lies the problem....?

I figured it out. Just use the part of the URL after "http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=" and you're golden!

Gonna try again to make sure it really works. Pretty easy once you get the hang of it!

Yeah, if you copy the whole URL you see in your address bar it will look different than the one YouTube gives you if you click "Share" on the video.

The part of the address that this has you use is unique to the video, but common to both.

I'm still learning my way through this stuff....
