Update! It now appears that the media tag that these instructions recommend can't be depended upon to work. The code needs Adobe Flash to perform and that is its weak spot.

If you post a YouTube video on the forum and would like for it to display within your post, please let me know and I can make it work. Click on the "Notify" button in that post to tell me.


A YouTube video can be posted on the forum so viewers can see it right there. It doesn't have to be just a link.

Go to the YouTube video you want and copy the http address.
On the "New Topic" or "Full Reply" screen, put your cursor in the message post box where you want the video to appear.
Click on the Media Icon button as shown below.
Choose "You Tube Video"
Paste the YouTube http address in the box and click the OK button to submit it.
The video should appear where you inserted it after you submit the message. If you have trouble, click "Contact" at the top of this page.
Embedded video may not show in the "Preview" mode, depending on your device.

Some users may not see the embedded video because of software non-compatibility on their device. So also post the You Tube link in your message so everyone can see the video (like this example):


Embedded Video:

Copy the You Tube http address

Click the movie media button and choose You Tube Video

Copy and paste either the full http address or just the Youtube code name for your video
