New YouTube BBCode!!

Postby Tsunami3k » Tue Oct 04, 2011 7:32 pm

Me: I suggest that we add a YouTube BBCode.
Me2: I agree.
Me: Great!
Me2: I'm glad we're in agreement. I'll do it now.
Me: Actually, it's already done.
Me2: Do you have a screw loose? You're talking to yourself.
Me: Probably. Anyway...

Is this still working? I'm having a little bit of trouble with it, but it's been a while so it might be a syntactical error...
Is it just the url or is it the embed code?

Nyan Cat sez" not available for watching in your country."
Do you use a VPN? TM's video works.

How is this BBCode thingy an improvement over previous youtube embedding?
To watch Anime is life. All else is merely waiting.

I could have sworn that link #1 wasn't working when I first posted it!

I still can't get the YouTube embedding to work. I may have to add the same parameters like Techomuse did.

There's no need to submit a post to test it out. Just hit the "Preview" button each time you want to check out your changes and "Submit" once you have what you like.

YouTube BBCode links are a bit fickle as it needs a "?v=" in it and has to be "http" vs "https". For short links like yours, just follow the link and it changes to the longer version; just cut'n'paste that into your post here like so:

My iPhone is only copying the shorter link. I think I will have to switch to my laptop.
