How to embed YouTube videos in posts

Postby BBO » 19. Sep. 2015, 10:42

Youtube doesn't want it to be to easy to grab /embed their vids in other websites so they make fun with the adresses.
They want people to watch it on youtube not on our site directly.

But it is possible to add it into posts:

In your posting click on "Youtube" (in the upper right in post edit mode)
Then you get:
[Youtube][/Youtube]

Go to youtube and check for the video url.
In case you see something like this in your browser adressbar on top of the youtube page
Code: Select all
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MDrTlbLLlYA&feature=youtu.be


Copy the code and put it into the: [Youtube]Video url in Here [/Youtube]

Now the important part.
Take the url and change the https to just http
and remove everything at the end (starting with the "&...":
Code: Select all
&feature=youtu.be


Then you have a link like this:
Code: Select all
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MDrTlbLLlYA


And you can embed the video and it plays directly in your posting:
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MDrTlbLLlYA[/youtube]

Too bad that this does only work when you have flash installed.
