Help - how to embed video in a post

Posted: Sun Jun 03, 2012 2:34 pm
This is an updated tutorial, describing how to embed YouTube and Vimeo videos in a VK Logger Discussion Forum post... just like this one!

The YouTube method has been changed, as of today, so the syntax is the same as embedding Vimeo videos.

ie; All you need to do is cut & paste the video id only between the relevant [ YouTube ] or [ Vimeo ] tags.
Beware of other junk in a YouTube URL, often there is "&feature= blah blah - you just need the video id here

:idea: Please keep in mind that some users do not have access to high-speed internet, so it may be undesirable to embed any more than one or two videos on the same page.

Posted in 2012, but worthy of a refresher.

It's very easy to share Youtube videos here.
When creating a new post, simply click on the Youtube button, and then cut 'n paste the Video ID only between these tags, not the entire URL.
