Embedding a Youtube video?
« on: September 12, 2012, 12:19:59 AM »
Ok so this is a terribly noobish question, I admit, but... how do I embed a Youtube video into  a message?

It's done automatically when you post a youtube link, unless the video owner forbits embedding, in which case it will state that next to the link. :-)

Oh heh... can you believe that's pretty much the one thing I didn't try? Thank you!

just make sure to use the "long link" and not the "youtu.be" one...when you click "share", under the url that appears, click "options" and select "long link"

If there is some particular reason why you don't want one to embed, ... I often like to just leave them as a straight link in IC posts ... use the [noembed ] [ /noembed] tags (without the spaces)

sorry for the noob followup, but I'm feeling a bit foolish, I can get youtube links to embed, but I'm having a 'senior moment' in trying to get the player to show.  I posted in the music thread and the link is clickable but I cant remember how to make the video show.
Gah! nevermind this lol *kicks self, walks away muttering at himself*

I have a question about embedding videos...

Lately, when I post the link (the long link), it doesn't embed the video for me. It just shows me the link instead of posting the video. I know some videos don't embed on their own (depending on the video settings), but lately no video will embed for me. I checked all my settings and I don't have anything changed.

I'm trying to embed this one (which I have before and it worked):

Code: [Select]
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cr-SqRWImmI
But all I see is the link when I preview or post it. It's not embedding.

You can't use https for embeds, just take the s out and it will embed.
