Topic Wiki

If your video is not embedding, see if your link starts with "https" - if it does, change it to "http" and it will work.

If a video isn't embedded you should assume it may be inappropriate for some people.

How do I embed a Youtube video?
Click the "youtube" button on the second row on the furthermost left side.
You will now have the words: [youtube][/youtube] in your editor.
Now, copy and paste the youtube video id (youtube.com/watch?v=oHg5SJYRHA0&x=y) in between the middle brackets in order for it to look like this:
    [youtube]oHg5SJYRHA0[/youtube]
and leave out this part of the link: "http://www.youtube.com/watch?v="

Or you can paste the you tube link, highlight it, and then click on the "YouTube" button. this will encase the link in the youtube tags,
Now just click "post" and you're done!



How can I search if a video has been posted here before?
This is not foolproof, but it's a good start.
Search for the youtube ID (youtube.com/watch?v=oHg5SJYRHA0)

ROFL, hard to follow his Yiddish/Yinglish, but well worth it.

May I suggest that besides for embedding videos we also post the Youtube link for the benefit of mobile users?

Which mobiles can watch Youtube videos but can't browse DDF in the full or curve themes?

Embedded Youtube clips don't show up in the Curve theme. Youtube linked can be opened and viewed on Blackberries (and possibly other phones).

If only there was a Curve mod that would parse the [ youtube] tag as a link.

Well in Curve you can always quote and copy/paste the youtube video ID though, no?

Yes, but that's pretty tedious on a BB.

Without a doubt, but at least it's feasible.

LOL!!!

B"H I've already caught a foul ball at a game before (even got it autographed after the game) and crossed that off my bucket list.  Won't have to drop a kid to try and get one :D
