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!

To change the size at which a video is displayed, use the following as your opening bracket: [youtube width=100 height=100], replacing 100 with the desired dimensional measurements (in pixels). (There's probably something to note about maintaining the aspect ratio or the lack of a need to maintain the aspect ratio... As the computer I'm currently at filters out embedded YouTube videos, I can't do any testing.)


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)

I vote against it.

A like button implies that one agrees or likes the notion mentioned. A dislike button allows a poster to voice dislike without actually delineating which point or why they dislike it. Unlike a like, which often doesn't need an independent explanation, a dislike is missing the main substance - the reason for the disapproval. If someone dislikes a post, it is better for them to articulate that opinion through a written post, in which they give reason for their sentiment.

That said, a dislike button will only infuse negativity while stifling honest conversation, while a like button is a handy tool to voice approval without having to reiterate the OP's idea.

Agree?

Having just a like button is like living in a police state :D

It's a humorous parallel, but it's not really comparable. Anyone can voice dissent openly. You just have to manually do it, instead of having a little shortcut that encourages one to not explain themselves.
Is there a clever way to solicit likes without sounding like a classless wannabee?
