We've had a few members recently that have been having problems posting Youtube videos. Generally, on the Youtube video page, you need only click the "Share" button, then click on "Embed". Copy and paste that code directly into a post here and the video should display right in your post.

Now, if you're having issues with that, here is an alternative, or 2:

1 - On the Youtube video page, copy the URL at the top of the page, the actual address where you are viewing the video. For example, here is a URL:


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lMTrthePKU0

While creating a post here - click on this image ----> https://www.vbulletin.com/forum/images/editor/video.png

Past the actual address in that box, and the video should appear in your post when you post it.

2 - Alternatively, just copy the address into your post, and add the video tags around your URL, like such:

I want to reiterate and emphasize - the "recommended" way to post videos, posted in the example above, is as follows:

1 - On the Youtube video page, copy the URL at the top of the page, the actual address where you are viewing the video. For example, here is a URL:


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lMTrthePKU0

While creating a post here - click on this image ----> https://www.vbulletin.com/forum/images/editor/video.png

Past the actual address in that box, and the video should appear in your post when you post it.
