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 thought I was an encyclopedia when I was 9, this kid just shot "Non Newtonian Solid" out of his belt :o

Amazing! Any reason this wouldn't work in NYC? Of course massive funding necessary for advertising.

It could (it's scheduled for October 2014 - http://www.theshabbosproject.org/ ) but I believe in South Africa there are many non-orthodox jews that are traditionally minded wheres in the US they are more assimilated with less connection to Judaism.

I have no doubt there are thousands of unaffiliateds in NYC who would latch on to something like this.

I agree but I don't think we could replicate the 50% that South Africa had.

Amazing.
 So that's what the internet is for!

Nice that this doesn't seem to be at all zionistic or anything else, just Jewish.
