How do I embed a youtube video in post

Postby Bubblegummonsters on 08/25/2011, 12:56 am

Hi All,

I am sure this has been answered before, I have tried to search the forums for an answer.

I can't seem to embed a youtube video in post. BBCode is as follows

[img] is ON
[flash] is OFF
[url] is ON
Smilies are ON

This is how it comes out when I use the youtube tab in post

[youtube]<object width="640" height="390"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/HdpbodkX-dU?version=3&amp;hl=en_GB&amp;rel=0"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/HdpbodkX-dU?version=3&amp;hl=en_GB&amp;rel=0" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="640" height="390" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object>[/youtube]

or even if I try this

[youtube]http://youtu.be/HdpbodkX-dU[/youtube]

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

No that wasn't it, of course we tried the www. All was explained in the above post by Dustin reffering us to the other topic. Its actually the bit of code following, for example http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=INSERT YOUTUBE CODE HERE

For the benefit of anyone else having the same problem I would check out the topic highlighted by Dustin.

Thanks for the reply.
