YouTube embedding


Recommended Posts

Ok, I added a BBCode to the forums to allow direct YouTube embedding. For the protection of the site, I made it so you only include the 11-character Video ID and not the entire URL (so links can't be highjacked).


To add YouTube videos, just use the "Insert Special Item" drop down or Quick Access dialogue box. In both, you will see an option to Insert:YouTube. Once you do that, all you put in the field is the 11-character video ID.


So for the following video, all I put in the text box was: YtxnssPO_ec


which gives you this:



The only concern is if we start spamming threads with a bunch of videos, so please keep the video embedding limited to one per post.
