How to embed YouTube video in post

Postby Peter Balfour » Sat May 15, 2010 8:23 am

OK, I have added a modification to our forum to allow embedding YouTube video directly in a post (see my Mosport practice post below). To embed video cut and paste the video URL from YouTube like below:

Code: Select all
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6OCNx8iuMrY


Then remove all the code left of the "v=" like so:

Code: Select all
6OCNx8iuMrY


Then higlight the code and click the "youtube" button on the top right of your input screen and then it should look like this:

Code: Select all
[youtube]6OCNx8iuMrY[/youtube]


Press submit and that's it...enjoy!

To resize your avatar you just need to make sure that it is no larger than the avatar limits:

Maximum dimensions; width: 121 pixels, height: 121 pixels, file size: 122.07 KiB.


The images need to be pretty small, just use some graphics program that allows you to resize and images. Once you have it just upload it in your user control panel and you should be good. It will tell you right away if you have exceeded the limits. Make sure the image is in a JPG format as well.
