How to post Youtube videos
« on: October 05, 2016, 06:19:32 PM »
To post a youtube video, open a post (hit the reply button).



Then hit the youtube button up on the tool bar. It's circled in red.



You should see that some text has appeared in your post. These are the youtube tags. Tags are surrounded by brackets "[" (open bracket) and "]" (close bracket)

Paste the url (web address) of the video that you want to post in between the two tags.

Now, remove the s from the https. It's circled in red.



Hit post and you're done!

Last, but not least, you can't post a youtube playlist, a set of youtube videos. Each video has to be posted individually.

In conclusion, I can leave you with no better advice than that given after every sermon by Msgr Vincent Giammarino, who was pastor of St Michael’s Church in Atlantic City in the 1950s:

    “My dear good people: Do what you have to do, When you’re supposed to do it, The best way you can do it,   For the Love of God. Amen.”

Yay, Lynne! Got it.
To board the struggle bus: no whining, board with a smile, a fake one will be found out and put off at next stop, no maps, no directions, going only one way, one destination. Follow all rules and you will arrive. Drop off at pearly gate. Bring nothing.

As a slight addendum:
I don't think you can use shortened YouTube URLs.  They must look similar to this:
http://www[dot]youtube[dot]com/watch?v=Noh0GQiSHNk&

and NOT like this:
http://youtu[dot]be/Noh0GQiSHNk

Also, you don't actually need the YouTube tags to post the video.  You can just post the URL itself.  :)
