I've figured out how to post pics but was clueless as to how to post a Youtube Video. I searched for "how do you post a video?" but came up with nothing except videos that everyone else seems to easily know how to post! Crimony!
Will the embedded video show up in preview? I tried a number of different combinations but nada. Just point me in the right direction and I'll figure it out.
The trick to posting a YouTube video on this forum is that you have to use the old embed code that starts with "<object..." You get the old code by clicking on the box below the embed code.
There are two styles of embed codes that are available for YouTube videos. The new embed code begins with "<iframe..." and supports both Flash and HTML5 video. The older style of embed code begins with "<object..." and only support Flash playback.
Some services only support the older "<object..." embeds. If you do encounter a site that rejects your "<iframe..." embed code, the recommended course of action is that you use the older "<object..." code for the time being.
To generate an "<object..." embed code, you can take the following steps:
Click on the Embed button under the video.
Select the Use old embed code checkbox.
Once you’ve selected this checkbox, copy the code in the Embed field.
Paste the embed code into the the third-party site.
The embedded video will show up in the preview post if done correctly.
Hope that helps!
thanks Tim! That did the trick.
I thought I'd bump this thread since the information is out-of-date and unhelpful. You can no longer find the old embed code on Youtube. So here it is:
