How to post a YouTube video

I was able to reverse engineer youtube videos published by Yardbirds and Sue I think it was and inundate everyone with videos of old rockers and other annoying things. I'm pretty proud of myself so I thought I would give a step by step for anyone else who would like to try. My apologies in advance for letting the genie out of the bottle.

1) I find it works best from a browser instead of the app. So go to YouTube on your browser.
https://m.youtube.com
2) Search for the video you want and copy the url. That will give you something like this which will be a link but won't show up in the window.
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=MzdvQOXxRD4
3) to embed the video in your message you need a couple more steps. First insert the YouTube code from the top of the frame.
[youtube][/youtube]
4) this tells the board that a video is coming. You need to post your url in the middle. That will give you this:
[youtube]https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=MzdvQOXxRD4[/youtube]
5) But that alone won't work because Youtube trims it's url so you have to clean it up. Instead of the m.youtube.com it needs www so replace the m.youtube.com with www.youtube.com.
[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MzdvQOXxRD4[/youtube]
You'll notice that that still doesn't work. That's because you also need to take the s off of https: so it's just http: because the s stands for secure and stops it from being embedded.
6) the result is


Have fun

Re: How to post a YouTube video

Ok I'm bumping this up because no one seems to have read it and are still posting videos wrong.

I believe you need to remove the "s" from https to read http

Re: How to post a YouTube video

That's point 5
I guess I didn't write it out very clearly.

Your post needs to look like this
[youtube] http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xd6799jjngg[/youtube]

I had to put a space after the first [youtube] to keep it from posting. But that's what the part between the two [youtube]s should look like.
