Embedding of youtube videos

Post by Dirtyburty » Sun Feb 01, 2015 12:10 pm

Is it possible to embed a youtube video on this forum?

On other forums I use it is possible to include a vid as part of the post rather than having to click on a link.

Its done similar to how an image is posted but using [youtube] [/youtube] tags instead of img tags.

I'm not overly I.T. savvy so just wondering if its something I'm doing wrong or whether this forum just hasn't got the facility to do it.

Any help appreciated

Embedding youtube videos takes up a lot of bandwidth. So this option is often disconnected.

Yup, unfortunately I run several websites including this forum and the hosting isn't cheap as I don't include ads or ask for donations to pay for it.

The best option for the moment is to link to it. Saves bandwidth and the forum dying because too many videos are on here. Although I am partial to a good bit of you tube banter :)
