YouTube links not embedding properly

(1/2) > >>

tpir04:
I have tried to embed YouTube videos using the [youtube] feature (the one in the message box, below the "Bold font" button, and I get this: #invalid YouTube link#. Does anyone know why? Appreciate your help on this. Thanks!

htmlcc92:
What are you putting between the tags? Between the opening youtube tag and the closing (/youtube), the only thing that should be there is the video ID, the "v=" part of the URL. So for example, if I want to embed https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6AXtsIi8_yc&list=PL1dmMR3keU2CIPfkfzVCcfA9cAqiKblpw&index=2&t=2s, the post would look like:


[youtube-open-bracket]6AXtsIi8_yc[/youtube-close-bracket]


Using the YouTube button below the bold font button.

I tried it, and it works. Thank you, htmlcc92!

htmlcc92:
You're welcome! I know I've always had issues trying to remember what to put in the brackets, I forget quite often!

The other thing that works is changing the https to just http. So in htmlcc92's example, this would also work:

//www.youtube.com/watch?v=6AXtsIi8_yc
(Except of course replace yt with youtube.)
