How do you add Youtube videos to your posts? 2015
« on: April 11, 2015, 04:49:15 AM »
I have noticed that since the forum layout has been updated, it has made many videos/links now invalid :-(

The old way of inserting videos into posts seemed easy, you just added the youtube video's share link, highlighted it then clicked on the Youtube icon and that made the link 'forum friendly' - it inserted itself into the post, a bit like a photo, only you could press 'play' and watch it without having to leave the forum page.

That option is no longer there now :-(

Does anyone know if there is a new way of inserting videos into posts? or are we only able to add web/url links now?

Thanks
Rachel x

Thanks Tony

I have posted just the links in a previous post, they work fine, just look a little boring. What used to happen before, was the video itself was embedded into the forum post. That's what I'm wanting to know how to do now.  Maybe it's not possible anymore :-(

It's not a big deal, just a little annoying not being able to watch a video someone has posted without leaving the page - Having multiple pages open on a PC/Laptop is no problem but on smaller devices such as tablets and mobiles, having multiple pages open makes things slow to load.. ah well :-)

Hello dear Rachel,
It is possible to do this.
However, while I was trying to install tis option on our forum
It crashed and our website was unavailable for some hours untill we fixed it.
I have reported the script as vulnerable and I'm waiting to get a new fixed version.

See you soon,

Dimitris
