Embedding youtube

Per Dam's instructions:

Yes you can embed via youtube, you just have to copy the ending part of the video link, read here:

Since there are many ways to share a youtube link, it's hard to use just one set of BBCode that would handle all cases. I think the simplest way is to copy the youtube video ID and paste it inside [youtube][/youtube] tags

Example:
First, go to the address bar, you will see something that looks like this

Code: Select all
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QTB9u2AuzCA



Copy everything after the ?v=
Select the part in red, right click + copy, or Ctrl + C (for Mac, cmd + C).

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QTB9u2AuzCA

This is your video ID. In this case, it is QTB9u2AuzCA

When you're making a post, click on the youtube tag then paste the video ID inside these tags.
Paste by right click + paste, or Ctrl + V (for Mac, cmd + V)

You will have this:

Code: Select all
[youtube]QTB9u2AuzCA[/youtube]



And this is the result:
