You can embed a YouTube video via the [FLASH] code within the message options in a post. If you mouse over the "flash" button it shows you the variables that you must enter (width, height, video URL). The video URL you enter must be the URL within the YouTube embed code, i.e. http://www.youtube.com/v/4q4wPvQhTck ( not the URL of the YouTube video that shows in the address bar which would be formatted more like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4q4wPvQhTck )

So, your code in the post would look like this:

Code: Select all

[flash=425,344]http://www.youtube.com/v/4q4wPvQhTck[/flash]


And here's what it looks like in action...

I will tell you how to do this step by step. first on youtube use the SHARE button to get the video code.

This is what it will look like = http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RlxQXXlW6fo

so this form is wrong as it is you must delete the watch and the = and include a forward slash inbetween /:)

like this http://www.youtube.com/v/RlxQXXlW6fo

now the link is ready to go into the flash command.

[flash=]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RlxQXXlW6fo[/flash]

now all you need to do is put the size of the flash video in the after the = sign and like 425, 344

[EXAMPLEflash=460,340]http://www.youtube.com/v/RlxQXXlW6fo[/flash]

then you have it.

Yep. It works that way on all the LDSFF forums. Whenever I forget, I go to a post that has an embedded video (the humor thread has a lot of them), click "quote" then use that as a pattern to refresh my memory - especially when this thread has been buried by time.

UPDATE: How to embed a video as of today. With Baby Steps

The code on Youtube has changed slightly. They have omitted http: from the link in the code, so you now have to manually type in http: into the link. Here's how it works--

1. At the youtube page, below your video, are some options: About, Share, Add to...
2. Click the "Share" link
3. Three more options will appear: Share this video, Embed, email..
4. Click "embed"
5. The highlighted code will appear.
6. Unhighlight the code and highlight only the portion of the code in quotations AFTER src=
7. You will notice the portion is the link to the video, which nearly matches the link in the address bar at the top (except that http: is missing from the link. Why, I don't know.)
8. Copy (control+c) the portion, which will look like //www.youtube.com/embed/Ew_HqNSv1eU
9. Replace the word embed with the letter v
10. It now looks like this //www.youtube.com/v/Ew_HqNSv1eU
11. Notice that the http: is missing? Add it in: http://www.youtube.com/v/Ew_HqNSv1eU
12. Now, in your reply box here on LDSFF, click on the Flash Button. The following code appears in your reply box: [flash=][/flash]
13. Paste (control+v) the new url code between the Flash codes like this: [flash=]http://www.youtube.com/v/Ew_HqNSv1eU[/flash]
14. The last step is to type in the size of the video into the first flash code bracket [flash=]. If you look at your Youtube video, you'll see some size options like 420x315, etc. I like using 480x360 so input the size like this: [flash=480,360] Noticed there is a comma between the two numbers in the flash code and not an x.
15. Your code is complete and will embed a video in your reply:



Yay!! :ymparty: Now you try! :ymcowboy:

What about embeding Vimeo videos? Since it's flash, shouldn't it be working?

UPDATED 2015-05-27 - deleting the original post since there is now an easier/better way in place for embedding YouTube videos. This also makes the videos better on mobile devices.

Now you can just click the "youtube" button. How to use: If this is the video you want to post: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zE7PKRjrid4" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; - just copy the video ID at the end of the video URL ( zE7PKRjrid4 ). Put that in-between the two YouTube code tags, like so:

Code: Select all

[youtube]zE7PKRjrid4[/youtube]
And here's what it looks like in action...
All my opinions are tentative pending further data...

Ok here's our friend Bono from U2 pulling up 3 free spirited LDS girls I know at a recent u2 gig in Phx, May 2015.

Enjoy:

Why do those young girls want to listen to old man music? And report the girl with the sleeveless top to her bishop for being immodest.

Easier is better. But you know how change is for some old folks. I like it, Brian. :D

The only thing I say is problematic is the ability for other posters to reduce the size of a repeated video. Some posters copy the previous post and therefore posts the same video that can be repeated several times on the same page. So that I do not have to repeat a video, I either delete the link altogether or downsize the video, using flash options so that it barely shows up. Maybe it doesn't matter, but some videos perhaps shouldn't be repeated, what one person sees as funny and cute, another may see as offensive. Not all videos are top-notch nice ones. I guess the best option at this point is to remember to delete the video link in our posts to others so that repetition is minimal.

Just a thought.

The time line still stands for drastic cooling and incredible shifts in Earth’s climate system as the grand solar minimum commences from 2018-2023.
Episode #27 with Inventor Lee Wheelbarger is about getting mentally prepared for a pioneering lifestyle and a look at Electrical phenomenon around the planet that is surging to be noticeable by all.
When the New Madrid fault line awakens again as its doing now, the gas and oil pipes will be severed and fuels will be unavailable. If this happens during winter 10s of millions of households will be without a fuel source to heat their homes, not to mention the ripple effects and spinoffs into the economy.
Moving agriculture to indoor led growing facilities as the outdoor climate will become too unstable and too hostile. It’s all about rotary drum grow systems, the correct wave lengths of light to grow plants and the machinery / hardware involved to replace lost crops from the fields.
Countries have been annexing land for a decade knowing this Grand Solar Minimum was coming, but the Obama administration did nothing to prepare. We also delve into the certainty of scientists that show massive shifts in global cloud patterns due to increased cosmic rays and subsequent effects on our weather with more clouds.
