Embedding YouTube Videos

Post by WYKara » Mon Jan 21, 2019 9:48 am

Our IT folks helped us out with this issue regarding embedding YouTube Videos

If someone pastes a YouTube URL (or lots of other possible video service URLs) it should convert the URL automatically into the HTML required to embed the video in the topic.

Anyone can edit their own posts to fix these errors if they want. They would have to add https://www.youtube.com/watch?v= in front of the URL if it is missing, and remove the [bbcode] and [/bbcode]. There is a similar issue with [vimeo] BBCodes. Our IT did not disable this so the Media Embed extension currently will ignore Vimeo URLs.
