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

#1 Post by 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

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?

Hi all .trying to upload some you tube vids but struggling to get them to load correctly .
Followed Arpies instructions above no joy with or with out the "s" even copy and pasted a you tube link from another post from this week alongside mine which works fine and looks identical .

Could one of the you tube Gurus on here have a look and see if they can get this link to work?


Thanks for your assistance

G'day Brendon, I have found my videos don't seem to be showing since the forum upgrade, at least on my end - not sure why. If someone has an answer, let us all know and I can fix it for my next trip report, if I catch something worth a video!
