How to add a video!
« on: September 03, 2007, 10:00:19 AM »
Option 1:
Adding video is now easier than ever.
Just find whatever video you want to add.. (from just about any site) and copy the URL. Paste it into your post and that's it!

For example: in the "<embed>" tag you should see a URL (http://www.whatever_the_link_is)
Copy and paste that into your post and the video will show.





Option 2: for YouTube, only if the above does not work.
1) Find or upload the video you want to add on youtube.
2) Look for the "Embed" tag. It should look something like the following.
Code: [Select]
<object width="425" height="353"><param name="movie" value="[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/v/3MoG5eFi2Tg[/youtube]"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/v/3MoG5eFi2Tg[/youtube]" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="353"></embed></object>
3) We do not need all of that junk here... in that tag, right after the URL/v/ you will see a series of letters and numbers. In the example above it's 3MoG5eFi2Tg. That's all you need.

4) When you make a new post here, you will see a YouTube icon above the text box. It looks like this.---> Click that icon and you should see a tag that looks like this. --->
Code: [Select]
[youtube=425,350][/youtube]Simply paste the series of letters and numbers between that tag.
So it should look like this.--->
Code: [Select]
[youtube=425,350]3MoG5eFi2Tg[/youtube]
That's it! Happy posting!
