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)

This is kind of amazing. Where's @ExGingi on where his allegiance lies?

Yup, same thoughts exactly. I guess when you're around there for so long, you just join the way they do it.

You actually have doubt?

There's only one correct way, and that's the way it was done at the children rallies in front of the Rebbe.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

You are mixing apples and oranges. Singing a niggun incorrectly at a farbrengen vs singing the correct tune but matching it up differently to the words.

Besides, this one specifically originated at children's rallies (or possibly camps or release time).

I'm shocked that Yoni sings it the way he does in the video. I would never imagine him to be such a traitor.

I meant to post earlier, I'm afraid I'm starting to join the dark side

this is the point in the farbrengen at which I would throw potato salad at your face.

ETA: just tagging @Freddie to let him know his fine contributions of throwing things, be they hot coffee or cold potato salad, are never forgotten.

Lol, probably has to do with your Location.
