How to embed videos from Youtube


Recommended Posts

To embed videos from YouTube:

1: Look at the URL (the address at the top of your browser) of the video you want to post. For example:


2: Copy the Video ID which is the code after v=

In the above case it's 9w5CjCfh-2A

3: Do the next bit all on one line. 'Wrap' that code in YouTube tags by typing picture2y.jpg

4: Then type in the code 9w5CjCfh-2A

5: Then close the tag by typing picture1x.jpg

6: The fruits of your labour should result in something like this:

" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="350">

Actually, that's all bollocks now; all you have to do is copy the WHOLE Youtube adress and click on the MEDIA button (the furthest on the right of all the options, and looks like three Polaroid prints on top of each other), and paste it in there in its entirety.

Now just press ok and you're done.
