YouTube tags standardized

Post by Phil_G » 09 Jul 2018, 23:40

Okay, the forum now uses the 'standard' method of embedding YouTube videos, where just the
video identifier (the gobbledygook string of letters & numbers) is placed between [YouTube] tags.
The old method of copying the entire 'embed' code is no longer necessary. Heres an example.
This is how you'd enter it into a post using the YouTube button and pasting the video identifier:

and this is what you'd see:




This is where you'd find the video identifier, in the address bar of your browser:

Personally, I prefer Vimeo - there doesn't seem to be as much picture degradation as there is on YouTube. At least, there didn't seem to be last time I did one, which is quite a time ago now...

I've gone through the whole forum and changed every video entry to the new format.
Hopefully this will make it much easier to post videos in future, as its now the same method as most other
forums. I'll do Vimeo when I get a mo.

Hi Gary, what happened was I changed the format, thinking that all the existing posts would still work - but in fact the new format broke every previous YouTube link - so then I felt guilty that I'd broken Rons forum :D So its only right to fix it asap (quick before anyone notices :D )
Hows the Noah's Ark plan forming?
