The official how to post a YouTube video thread

#1
Ok, we've gone over this a million times but some people cannot grasp the concept.

This thread will be a place for how-to tutorials and a place to practice.

There is more than one way to do it so please share.

Step two: Find a video you want to post. When you do, look to the right of the video and find the embed code. It is located directly underneath the URL code.

Looks like this:

<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/vPYZ3AfCzYU&hl=en&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/vPYZ3AfCzYU&hl=en&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>

Step 3:

Left click on the embed code, it should highlight. Go to the top of your screen and click "edit". On the drop down menu, click "copy".

Step 4: At EOG, hit post reply and go back to edit and click "paste".

The embed code should then be pasted in the thread like this:

<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/vPYZ3AfCzYU&hl=en&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/vPYZ3AfCzYU&hl=en&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>

Step 5: Now here is the tricky part. You need to click edit your post and then erase the embed code. After it is erased, paste it again:

<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/vPYZ3AfCzYU&hl=en&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/vPYZ3AfCzYU&hl=en&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>

lost on step 5....sorry
All you do is hit the you tube button to bring up the brackets. Then take the code after the = sign in the youtube url (at the end) and put it in between the brackets.
