Howto: Post Youtube Videos In Your Messages
Feb 14th, 2011 at 3:39pm
 
You can post embedded / inline videos to your messages using the "media" tag.

A YouTube link like this:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tC0bJvezU2c

Can be made to work inline with the addition of the "media" tags at the start and end of the link. Just make it look like this:

Code:
[media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tC0bJvezU2c[/media] 



And it will come out like this in your message:



You should also include the link in your text so that users can also click on that for more YouTube features.

You really only need the "watch?" and the "v=" part of the YouTube URL to make this work (and include the video ID which is a bunch of random looking characters).

If you hit the "Preview" button while creating your message you can always check to see how it all worked out.

Enjoy!
