How to post a video on forum?

Post by JohnDeere318 » Tue Aug 30, 2016 11:34 pm

:hi:

First off, I was about to put this on the General Questions or Technical Support sections, but thought Off-Topic was the best choice.

How do I post a video without having to post the link, like this: www.youtube.com

How do I make it in the forum instead of having to click the link? I hope you guys get what I am trying to say.

Thanks :smileynew:

You can not upload videos directly into the forum. The only way to show a video directly in a post is by doing the following:

- upload the video on youtube
- in the forum go to the full editor for editing posts, which is available by clicking on the "Full Editor & Preview" button at the bottom of the "quick Reply" section
- in the full editor click on the "youtube" button at the top right, next to the "spoiler" button; this will give you two "youtube" tags at the current cursor position
- put the ID of the video you got from youtube between the two "youtube" tags

So for example if the link to the video looks like the following:

Code: Select all

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AB_C123D5
your "youtube" tag would have to look like this:

Code: Select all

[youtube]AB_C123D5[/youtube]
I would still post the full link to the video as well so that people can go to youtube directly in case they want to leave comments etc.
