How to embed Youtube videos

I noticed some users were having trouble with embedding YouTube videos so I decided to do a quick tutorial.

Keypicking does not use the embed code from YouTube, we use YouTube tags that are at the right side of your text options.

For example, lets try to embed this Chat classic: "http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CQFEY9RIRJA&feature=related"

What you need is only the "http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CQFEY9RIRJA" part. If your link has the "&feature=related" or other stuff you will need to delete it. You WILL need the "http://" part or it will not work. This is the usual culprit that causes the rage.

Now press the youtube button and it will put these into the text box "[youtube][/youtube]" Put your link in between them and you should get your video to embed.

[.youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CQFEY9RIRJA[/youtube] (I added a period in the first tag so that it would not work so you can see what it should look like. Do not add it to yours ;))

And a successfully embedded video.

Excellent Riy. Between you and Aedalas, we've now got a nice quick & simple write up for posting vids or pictures.

Should make it easier for everyone. And, it benefits us ALL when people are able to share their work!

Also, anyone who uses plugins that force HTTPS (such as HTTPS Everywhere), when you copy an HTTPS link, it will not work with the "[youtube][/youtube]" tags. Just remove the s and you will be fine.

Example:

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CQFEY9RIRJA[/youtube]
