Youtube videos

#1 Post by Your Funny Uncle » Thu 04 Dec 2008, 2:40 pm

On another phpbb based forum that I post on they provide the ability to include a youtube video in a post by surrounding the url in tags. Tha way to do it seems to be outlined in this article.

Do you think you could add it here, Steffen?

Thanks for the hint Rob! Should work now! You only have to copy the video code between the Being boring codes!

Flamboyant example:

Code: Select all

That's the problem. You need to paste the actual YouTube code which you'll find at the end of the URL right after "=". Your code would be "_ENL6WUxAK0" - try that instead of the entire URL. It should work.
