    Embedding youtube video

    I've looked online to see how and I still can't get it to work. Can anyone explain it to me.

    When I go to youtube here is the embed code they give me:

    When you go to YouTube to watch a video, the address bar will look like this:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aTBFS7OjTGo

    In the reply box on our site, just put [youtube= and then the code at the top, in this case aTBFS7OjTGo, with another bracket. Then, obviously the [/youtube]

    Er, wait. The code, aTBFS7OjTGo, goes in between [youtube] and [ / youtube], without the spaces, obviously.

    It works for me.

    Quote this post to see the string. The code in the middle is the numbers and letters AFTER the = in the youtube URL and BEFORE the &

    Guys, stop using the [youtube] tag already.
    Quote Quoting Donald Glover
    I was actually just reading about Matt Damon and he’s like, ‘There’s a culture of outrage.’ I’m like, ‘Well, they have a reason to be outraged.’ I think it’s a lot of dudes just being scared. They’re like, ‘What if I did something and I didn’t realize it?’ I’m like, ‘Deal with it.’

    Yep. Use the [video] tag. Much better.
