HOWTO Put a YouTube Video Into your Post

Postby Kevin » Mon Feb 23, 2009 10:52 pm

First take note of the YouTube video ID of the video you are interested in:

Picture 12.png
Browser Address Bar
Picture 12.png (8.8 KiB) Viewed 610 times

The Video ID is the part of the url *after* the ?v=

So in this example, the ID is o0H879n9osE

Sample Post

Now once you have the ID in your post, just click the button at the top of the post window called "youtube". This will wrap the ID with the tags as seen below:

And now when you save your post (or preview it), you should see a YouTube video window that is ready to show the video with that ID!
