Talk with one of the admins or the owner to have your videos embedded into the site.

This is a good question. I thought I'd answered it somewhere, but I guess I hadn't. You can embed youtube videos in any post. When in a thread after you click on the "quick reply" button. Click on the "full editor" button.

Then copy and paste the youtube link into the post. Next, highlight the link and click the "youtube" button which is at the top right of the post buttons. Basically you just need to have [youtube]*[/youtube] but replace the * with the youtube link.

The only annoying thing about how it works on the site is that if you have a complicated youtube link like this:

Code: Select all

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vBpdS5d1i1k&list=UU6PqXHLxGaML24QT8Ijewpw&index=1&feature=plcp


It wont work if you embed it with the long code like that. You'd have to cut out everything after and including the & in the link. So like for the above link delete everything highlighted in red:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vBpdS5d1i1k&list=UU6PqXHLxGaML24QT8Ijewpw&index=1&feature=plcp


So turn the above link into this, then highlight the link below and click the "youtube" button at the top right in the posting buttons.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vBpdS5d1i1k



So for example the youtube video would like this in the post while you are posting.

Code: Select all

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vBpdS5d1i1k[/youtube]


Once you make your post it will appear like this:

The community video section is the only place where one of the admins has to move your video there, because its a locked forum. Any other section of the site is free for people to post videos.
