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)

Get this month's Zman and you'll see.

Oh, I thought you were referring to @Zalc 's first sentence.

I don't know about his second, he was probably talking about the original North Korea documnetary by Steve Wilde.

I made a mistake, I was referring to the article about the 2008 financial crisis, and "those who saw it coming"

I was. It looks like a post in the middle of nowhere. Perhaps he meant to post it in another thread?

Then it's not the main article. But what does it have to do with this thread?

True

Not much, though I guess it does have to do with a "funny / interesting " video, in some sense.

Now I got it. The most recent vid is of the article 12 skills in 12 months. I didn't watch it, and at face value it looked like it was only about chess. My apologies.

Np.
The "12 skills" article may not have been directly written from that video, but the "2008" article...

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

I might get backlash for this, but I'm ready. I wasn't sure where to post this but guess it fits in the strange category. My problem is not with what everyone decides to do with their lives, but rather with being a public image and gathering so much support from the frum community.

He previously made a video with a girl in bikini that was over the limit and unnecessary (I was completely fine when he was high-fiving people and dancing in the streets). The video was deleted from YouTube after getting more dislikes than likes and many negative comments, but it is still up on Facebook where the comments are mostly positive (sad that only pressure can work).
