View Full Version : Youtube Embedding?

05-20-2011, 12:45 PM
Did something change in posting Youtube vids?
I used to just post the link from the "share" section of the video & it would embed in a post here. However, I noticed in on Rappahannock trip post my youtube links come out as hyperlinks not embedded video.
I tried the "share" link, the page link from the Nav bar, embed code, & my own html juju.
Any ideas? :38:

Thanks folks!

I'm not sure... I just posted a vid from Shug and it was embeded... I just used the "insert link" and it worked...

What's the link...?

Ok, your link is wrong... click on your hyperlink and then post that address.

You want to post this... YouTube - ‪Rapp 5 2011 0017‬‏ (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CJ_5GJWWa6Q&feature=youtu.be)

Not this... http://youtu.be/CJ_5GJWWa6Q

I had the same problem they must of changed it a bit :6: .

I found that if you click... Share....then click the blue ...show options ... to the right of the link box and then select... Long link ...option , the new link works. Well for me anyway :)

Hope that makes sense.

I just go to the video's page, highlight the address and copy and past. Works just fine.

Okie doke I'll play with this when I get home.
The facist Government blocks youtube here at work.

Thanks for the input folks

I'm thinking that you were copying the link from your account and not the link that you watch it on... if that makes sense.

Indeed it does, I'll explore that option too.

I went through this headache already, here is the fix,

Go to share

and to the left of the box with the link click on "show options"

Select "long link"

Highlight, copy and paste and your good to go

Yep it's the long link that does it.

So anyone else stumbling across this pulling their hair out:
On your video select share, then click the "Long Link" box. Copy & paste the URL to your post.

E.G. do not use this link "http://youtu.be/WTmCbaDH4yE"

Use this link "http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WTmCbaDH4yE"

It won't show proper in the preview but will in the actual post.

Thanks for your assistance folks!

Thought I would try it here.

It took a couple of tries, but I got it.:35::dblthumb:
