How to post YouTube Videos

Do not assume that posting YouTube Videos is the same as posting pictures and documents.

1)Open the video you wish to post in your web broswer.
2)Locate the field underneath the "About this video" box, find the text "Embed (this video)"
3)Highlight the text in the field and copy/paste* it to your post.

If text in field says "Embedding disabled by request", link it:
1)Highlight the URL
2)Click the icon with a globe and chain link
3)Copy/paste the URL into the dialogue box that appears
4)Click OK, in the highlighted area enter the text that will become the link.

*Mac; Copy: ctrl+click, copy/command(apple key)+c
Paste: ctrl+click, paste/command(apple key)+v

Windows; Copy: right click, copy/ctrl+c
Paste: right click, paste/ctrl+v

Testing a YouTube video link:

<object width="480" height="385"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/ICQnGcjisgw&amp;hl=en_US&amp;fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/ICQnGcjisgw&amp;hl=en_US&amp;fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="480" height="385"></embed></object>

I must be doing something wrong as this is all I get.

Simon had to suppress the use of embedded HTML code quite some time ago to protect AlfaBB and AlfaBb members from vicious scripting attacks. There are two ways to refer to YouTube videos in a post:

1. Include the URI that points to the video, in your case: http://www.youtube.com/v/ICQnGcjisgw
2. If you append the URI with this code: &feature=player_embedded (no space between the URI and the appended code), the result will look like this:

-Ruedi
'63 2600 Touring Spider (AR 191437, the car that started the 2000/2600 International Register, reassembly in progress)
ex-'65 2600 SZ (AR 856043, now a restomod in Austria)
Maintainer of a private 2600 SZ register (not the one in the Netherlands).

Let's try this again...


Well, to get the above result, I simply copied from the address from the top and pasted to my reply. No appending necessary.

Thanks,
