How to embed youTube in 2020
« on: January 10, 2020, 06:53:35 PM »
Upgrading the site to https has broken the old youTube plugin so I have installed a different one. It works nearly the same except for the following:
You need to specify a display width otherwise it will show up native which is like 1200px or wider.

To embed youTube do the following:


1) Click on the first icon in the highlighted area shown in the image below. This will produce the following code:
(youtube)(/youtube)
it'll be in hard brackets but I've changed it to show what the test is.

2) Paste the unique identifier of the video. For example, ***https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQw4w9WgXcQ is a popular video. dQw4w9WgXcQ is the unique identifier. So, our code would be:
(youtube)dQw4w9WgXcQ(/youtube)

3) Last, you need to specify the width of display. I recommend 640.
(youtube width=640)dQw4w9WgXcQ(/youtube)

Here's what that would look like as an embed:


PS If you rick roll I will instaban you for 5 minutes.

If you select the far right icon in the image below, you can display all the videos in a users channel. Example:



The new icons:
