Default How To Embed A Youtube Video

This is my previous guide:

http://www.ub40.co.uk/forum/1502817-post41.html

it might have been a bit hard to understand, so here's an improved version:

1. Find the link of the desired video, like so:



2. We just want the code after the '=' sign. Like this:


3.Once you have located this code, the next step is to copy this code, to do this you must highlight it, then right click and click copy:



4.The next step is to click the youtube button that is amongst the buttons above the text box


Clicking it should bring this up:


5.Now, the next step is to right click in between the youtube tags, and paste the code. Like this:



Doing that should bring this up:


The last thing to do is to type whatever else you want to type in your post, then post it!
I hope this is easier for some of you

What do you mean the white link page?
You just have a big white box?

Kate....from the youtube link after you copy it, go to the BB. If you do the "Post Quick Reply" button you won't see the option for the facebook button. If you go advanced, or you post a new thread you'll see the little button on the top right hand side. That's what you click then paste the facebook stuff.....keep trying, if I can do it anyone can......
Cheers again Anant!!!!
