Topic Wiki

If your video is not embedding, see if your link starts with "http:" - if it does, change it to "https:" 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?
Simply post the YouTube URL.
Alternately (actually, this may no longer work):
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 YouTube 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)

Quotes in a signature is annoying, as it comes across as an independent post.

What happens when a young black man walks into Crown Heights and tries to practice his Yiddish? This.



(It's a pretty popular video - it's gotten close to 2 million views in 3 months.)


Pretty miserable video (especially in comparison to videos of real polyglots). He should have tried reaching out to my son who is one of the major contributors to DuoLingo's Yiddish modules, he would have actually been able to get some good practice with someone who knows Yiddish very well (and unlike what was the Frenchman said in the early part of the video, my son has no problem speaking to people in Yiddish even if they are more fluent in other languages that he is fluent in).
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Best part is the end when they admit that it was produced by Hashen ;)

If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

This is the only other one I got. There was also the trailer, but it's hosted by his website, and a behind-the-scenes video, but it's hosted by Vimeo, and I don't know how to post that
