How to embed video in your post

1
ok all, tried to make this as easy as possible...

you may notice the "youtube" button above the posting text box. intended usage is as follows:

Code: Select all

[youtube]<youtu.be url>[/youtube]


example:

Code: Select all

[youtube]http://youtu.be/dNk-Tu1xNsU[/youtube]


and NOT:

Code: Select all

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n18-0DCMuOQ&feature=g-vrec&context=G257b393RVAAAAAAAAAA[/youtube]


enjoy.

right. the "video" and "cine" tags still work for other sites, would just prefer to use "youtube" for, you know, youtube going forward. so i guess maybe i need to re-post the instructions for using those tags...?

also to note: the dimensions aren't necessary. if you leave them out, the video will be scaled to the default dimensions drae posted. you only need to put them if you want a different size.

if anyone can come up with a list of other hosts from which we post video with any degree of frequency (vimeo?), list them in this topic. if we use one enough, it can have its own button ala youtube.
