Wanna add a YouTube video to your post?
« on: June 08, 2011, 11:58:51 AM »
Thanks to TAC Mod Critter you can.

All you have to do is find the video on youtube you want to embed.  After its loaded right click and choose "copy video URL".  Then come back to TAC and while in the reply or new topic screen click the youtube BBC button.  You should get BBC code with youtube in the brackets.  Click between the two tags and do a Ctrl+V.  that will give you code that looks like this.  

[ youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Am2zeOqYVDc&feature=player_detailpage[ / youtube]

Disregard the spaces in my BBC code example.  Without the spaces it would have just embeded the video again.

I'm not sure why, but the YouTube code has trouble with the https in the url.  If you remove the s and make it http://<url> it'll work fine.
