UPLOADING VIDEO to your post so it shows 'as a video'

Postby arpie » Sat Jan 18, 2014 9:01 am

Hi guys

A lot of folk find it difficult to upload their youtube video to show as a video (instead as a link.)

This is how I do it ......

A few of tips on uploading your video to your page ....

1) Go to your YOUTUBE Video Page & then click on the video you want to upload. Highlight & Copy the url -it should look a bit like this (without a lot of extra detail on the end):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LGv7HDmvPT4

2) Then, go to your Post & click on 'Youtube' - instead of the '/' the CURSOR will be there between the 2 x 'youtube' bits - make sure it stays there
[youtube]/[/youtube]

3) Paste your URL in the middle - it should look like this:
[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LGv7HDmvPT4[/youtube]

4) THEN ..... the magic happens when you delete the 's' that is on the end of 'https'

5) Hit Preview to see that it HAS uploaded properly and then

6)Submit!



cheers

Roberta

My pleasure, guys - I know how frustrated I was when I couldn't get them to embed properly myself :?: ...... trial & error came up with 'my' method :wink: Good to see it works & easy to follow! :lek:

LOL Good one, Troopy, thanks - they keep changing the specs, tho - I don't think they like people embedding them into forums!!

Does the 'count' go up when you watch it on KFDU? I don't know!

So not sure how much longer this thread will be relevant!! :roll:

Just tried this method but would not work for me this time. It worked last time I tried it?
