[url=www.gearslutz.com/board/misc.php?do=bbcode]http://www.gearslutz.com/board/misc.php?do=bbcode[/url]

The above link will teach you how it is done, using bbcodes, at the GS forum, a nice forum about gear, recording, music, etc.

The video explanation is almost at the bottom of the list.


Place the video ID in between the tags.

Write:

[youtube]value[/youtube]

Remember: Do not leave any spaces. thumb

PS-Link not working (EDIT) working now

An easier way while posting is to click "Enter a media tag" on the toolbar and then enter the YouTube url. Not the embed code, just the regular URL.

THIS ... is what you are trying to do right? Post a youtube video?

Okay, you can press the "Quote" button at the bottom of my post to see how I did it.
But here's how you do it!
1. Right click on the youtube video, then you'll get something like this ...
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lqsvVocZtD8&feature=player_embedded

then put
[video:youtube] x [/video]
the x is the youtube video (http thingy)

You can see that I used spaces between the, http (and) the [/video] but don't, NO SPACES (I did, so you can see the order it goes in!

This is really hard to explain, but if you press the "Quote" button, you will see how I did it!

Hope this helps!
