Embedding YouTube video in YaBB forum by forum Admin.



It took a while for me to learn how to do this.

When you are typing in your message you need to click on the tiny "Insert media" icon.  This creates a couple of tags like so:
Code:
[media][/media] 


Between these two tags you need to enter the YouTube url for the video you want, in this case there were two YouTube versions. The one with the /v/ worked. Like so:
Code:
[media]http://www.youtube.com/v/L6vUeNf2wqU[/media] 


I  am now going to see if this works on an iPAD. Yes it does.

If you want to embed YouTube videos in your own website follow the instructions below the video as it appears on the YouTube site, following the links marked Follow and Embed. Copy the url from the 'old' code text to go here. Make sure you have http:// in front of the www of youtube.com.  I've written up a web page about how to solve the problem of getting YouTube image to work on an iPAD.  It worked for me but I suspect there are other difficulties also as many people report problems with getting embedded YouTube working for iPAD.

Best regards, Eric
