This Code:
Code: Select all
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c5ZLllCUGD8[/youtube]

Will produce this video


So just click the youtube button above the textbox when posting, copy and paste the URL for a video from YouTube and paste it between the tags you got when you clicked the youtube button.

Why would anybody want to lock this thread. Youtube on VCP is an awesome thing. People should come here and say thanks. Its been a long time coming, really. :mrgreen:

Great idea.

I have (have to admit) clicked on Youtube links to watch people's reels and WIPs for feedback and haven't returned, thanks to Youtube's "suggested viewing" panel. Always keeps me there for hours. Adding this means I can view whilst remaining in the formus. Also, helps me when giving feedback as I can type my feedback whilst watching the clip.

Can we use custom players/sizes when we are embedding?
Does that work with this code?

No, we set the player size so it would fit nicely in the posts.

Just a quick tip for people trying to link youtube videos.

You must use the full url:
Code: Select all
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c5ZLllCUGD8[/youtube]


Works:



----
NOT the shortened version:
Code: Select all
[youtube]http://youtu.be/c5ZLllCUGD8[/youtube]


Doesn't work:
[youtube]http://youtu.be/c5ZLllCUGD8[/youtube]

---

Also, make sure you include www.
