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)

Never heard of "The Onion" before.  This video made no sense to me so I actually looked up who was press secretary around March of 2008 (video date).  I got my answer re the authenticity of this video after looking at reviews for "The Onion".   ::)

Anyone lazy enough to think it's a good business idea probably lacks the requisite entrepreneurial drive to execute it?

Ive heard/read this question so many times. I don't understand what's so hard to answer it regardless of a person's beliefs, therefore I don't understand why it's a question to begin with.
