How do I embed a Youtube video?

Post by greenspark » Jan 23, 2012 5:44 pm

I want to embed a youtube video in a posting.

I tried the link by clicking the youtube button and inserting the YouTube link

[youtube]http://youtu.be/PpPCR4lBFTQ[/youtube]

In preview mode this just shows as the text.

I read all the help postings on phpBB, but none seem to work.

What's the secret?

How to do youtube embed

Post by creativeadapter1990 » Dec 26, 2012 1:10 pm

Because I couldn't find a thread that very clearly explained it:

1: put in [youtube][/youtube] by clicking on where it says youtube on the top bar.
2: Take youtube url, say http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=47lwPE_xGik
3: Delete the = sign and everything left of it
4: In this case now you should have 47lwPE_xGik another video will have a different one
5: take the end id of the youtube video and put it between the code tags like this but with the square brackets:
{youtube}47lwPE_xGik{/youtube}

by using [youtube][/youtube] instead of {youtube}{/youtube} you get

To send someone a SPECIFIC SPOT in a youtube, add a suffix that shows the minute and seconds of that spot.

If the specific spot on the youtube was at the 2 minute and 34 second spot, the suffix would add to the end of the normal address is #t=2m34
