    I'm sorry if this aggravates anyone, but I have been fixing peoples embedded YouTube videos a little too often lately.

    Here it is, step by step, folks!

    1. Head over to YouTube and find the video you want.
    2. Copy the highlited portion of the URL. (See Picture)
    [​IMG]
    3. Start posting a reply, just like you normally would.
    4. Click the little YouTube button. (See Picture)
    [​IMG]
    5. This will put the YouTube tags up for you.
    6. Paste what you copied in between them. (See Picture)
    [​IMG]
    7. Click "Preview Post" to make sure it works. If it doesn't, repeat previous steps.
    8. Click "Submit Reply"

    I hope this helps, guys!

    May I add, before you submit post, hit the "Preview Post" first just to make sure you got it right. :up:

    Like CNN, Dailymotion, Yahoo, AOL, and any other major sites that support flash videos. Pretty much have the forum be HTML friendly.

    Its easy dude. Just open your eyes and follow the instructions while drinking a cup of coffee. Coffee is a brain simulator:)

    I know it's not exactly the right place to ask, but I can't see a How To description anywhere and it's kind of appropriate, how does one post pictures (taken from the net) into a post please, I've mastered the video / you tube (i.e. this thread) but not sure about pictures, as I say sorry for question being not directly dealt with in this thread. Also I'm old and not very tech savy.
