    Embedding videos

    Seven years on the forum and I've never embedded a video. I have no clue how to do it. On the desktop I see the YouTube and Vimeo buttons. What next?

    There's a couple of ways to do it, but I think the easiest and most effective way is to use "Insert Video"
    insertvideo.JPG

    When you press it a dialog will pop-up and ask for the URL of the video you want to insert, copy the URL of the video you want to insert and paste it into the dialog box
    insertvideodialog.JPG

    Click on "OK" and the video will be inserted into your post (not my video, just something I randomly pulled out of the youtube thread)


    The YouTube and Vimeo buttons will also work, but they're more cumbersome, and the videos that are inserted are smaller in size.

    too much info i think

    you need to select only the video iD, # after V=

    in this case VvKjpGP6P5Y

    i just type the code my self (remove spaces from example below)



    [ youtube ] VvKjpGP6P5Y [ / youtube]

    will look like
    shit happens, wear a helmet.

    I think it's because the URL you posted was to the mobile version of that video (notice how the address starts with "m."). Otherwise it looks like you did everything correctly.

    Here's the same thing using the desktop (non-mobile) URL:


    Which is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VvKjp...5Y&app=desktop

    Notice that the video is bigger than the example that Gary posted using the [youtube][/youtube] tags? That's why I prefer the method I posted.

    Very cool. My next question was how to use it on the app but it looks like manually typing would do the trick. The only time I'm on a desktop is at work.

    In the past, and today, I've Googled the difference between a web address and a URL and find the answers so vague when I'm sure it's so simple for someone who can type a thought clearly.

    In this example of manually typing the code, we aren't using the entire URL, correct?
