How do you embed youtube here?
I've tried everything I can think of with no success.

Try copying the web address at the top of the page and pasting it.

That's what I do.

Sometimes you aren't allowed to embed youtbe, but what you need to do is really simple.

Copy the address, (control C) or just highlight the address, then click this tab in the 2nd row, 2nd from the right above, and just below thebold tab.
Looks like this. 

Once you click it, it will look like this, with the cursor flashing in the middle http://
Make sure the cursor is in the middle and flashing, then hold down your control key and hit the V key, and hit preview to make sure it posted.
If all is good, it should appear as the video in youtube.

To view this the way it was written, hit quote and examine it closely.

Okay, thanks. I did get the feeling that newbies weren't allowed. I tried
Code: [Select]
[youtube] url [/youtube]  I tried just pasting in the url. Then I tried the embed code. That works on most forums but not all.

EDIT:

Okay, I got it.  the youtube url goes between the url tags 
Code: [Select]
[url]youtube url[/url]

If you have any more problems, just quote a youtube pasted thread by another member and study it closely.
Or just past the link to it and someone will fix it for ya. :smile:
