Accompanying the new forum launch, we have revised the YOUTUBE BBcode functionality. To make the use of this button easier for the casual user, we have altered its behavior to accept the short-form YouTube link provided when you press "Share" under any video.

For example, let's say you wanted to embed the "White Knuckles" Amsterdam video (here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l5jKMjLDpWw). On YouTube, you would press the Share button directly below the video:

Highlight the text, and copy it to your clipboard:

Then, simply paste the text between two YOUTUBE tags as follows, and it will embed the video as shown below:

Code: Select all

Is it cool if I Promote a band from South Africa on here In the Open discussion Forum by means of sharing a Youtube video?

Sure! Other bands might be better than the general discussion forum though.

So Youtube allows you to share a video starting at a specific time in the video, but the boards don't recognize the code when you do that (click the box next to the share url and it updates the url to start at the time). Is there a way to integrate this to the boards?

Just a heads up that I updated the YouTube embed code to accommodate the recent (?) change to https. Now you should be able to once again paste the short YouTube URL directly into the YouTube tags without needing to modify the code at all.

Let me know if y'all have any issues. :cheers
