Posting You Tube Videos

Post by Big Boy » Tue May 29, 2012 1:07 pm

Some people have been having difficulty posting You Tube videos on HH Forum. Below is a simple step by step guide:

Step 1 - Identify the video you want to post:
YouTube01.jpg
Step 2 - Highlight the URL in the Address Bar and press Ctrl C to copy:
YouTube02.jpg
Step 3 - Post on HH Forum. Open your posting dialogue box:
YouTube03.jpg
YouTube03.jpg (50.36 KiB) Viewed 9433 times
Step 4 - Move your cursor to the point you want to insert the video, and press Ctrl V to paste:
YouTube04.jpg
YouTube04.jpg (49.82 KiB) Viewed 9433 times
Step 5 - Highlight the You Tube URL you have just pasted, and click the youtube box:
YouTube05.jpg
Step 6 - Your URL should now look like this:
YouTube06.jpg
YouTube06.jpg (58.18 KiB) Viewed 9433 times
Finish writing whatever commentary you wish to accompany the post, and press submit. The video should be embedded.
NB: Not all You Tube videos will embed - if this happens, you can either sort it yourself by removing the You Tube extensions at either end of the URL to simply leave a link, or leave until a moderator comes along to fix it later :banghead: :banghead: :D

Whoops :oops: I didn't realise a similar guide had been posted 2 years ago.

Note: if you use any of the following:

youtu.be
https instead of http
&feature=player_embedded

Or anything other than simply youtube.com in your link embedded videos will not work.
