How to use the YouTube tags

Postby LN Strike Eagle on Wed 06 Jun 2012, 6:41 pm

Thought I'd post this up as a few people seem to be struggling with the links etc. It's simple to use, all you need to do is paste the direct URL between the [youtube] tags.

The direct link looks like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_wpmuzSBuV0

Not the related link URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_wpmuzSBuV0&feature=related

Not the abbreviated link either: http://youtu.be/_wpmuzSBuV0



Same applies for vimeo, just use the [vimeo] tags.

Just wanted to add to this that it just took me a while to embed a youtube video and after some Googling I found that it didn't work because the link was "https", once the "s" was removed ("http") it worked fine.
