How to use the forum's YOUTUBE tag correctly

Post by Pedro-NF » 20 Jun 2013, 07:50

This is the correct format for the forum's YouTube tag:

[YOUTUBETAG]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VIDEOID[/YOUTUBETAG]

You need to strip the URL off everything else or the tag won't show the video window on your post.

Below are two common cases with the parts that need to be excluded in red:

[YOUTUBETAG]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9hfbMYo9xU4&feature=feedrec_grec_index[/YOUTUBETAG]

[YOUTUBETAG]http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=ZApBgNQgKPU[/YOUTUBETAG]

That wasn't so hard to figure out, was it?

Also, DO NOT use video URL's from the youtu.be domain. Open them in your browser and they will redirect to the youtube.com address - that's the one you should use.
