KH Headquarters is pleased to release our newest forum feature: The ability to embed Google and YouTube videos into your posts.
Here are instructions on how to embed Google and YouTube videos into your posts at KnittingHelp.com. Within the posting editor you will notice two new icons (see attachment), one for YouTube and one for Google. Clicking them will insert in the necessary BBCODE.
Next, you will need to reference the video by editing the BBCODE. There are many ways to do this:
Simple Method: You will need to get he unique ID code for the video. This can usually be found at the end of the URL. For YouTube it is after the watch?v= and for Google it is after docid=. Simply copy and paste that code between the video tag... //youtu.be/M6ZjMWLqJvM [GOOGLE]3302493280465168044[/GOOGLE] Another Simple Method: This just involves copy and pasting the full URL to the video between the tags: //youtu.be/http://youtube.com/watch?v=M6ZjMWLqJvM [GOOGLE]http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=3302493280465168044[/GOOGLE] Title Method: And finally, if you want to include a title that will appear at the top of the embedded player you can use a format like this: [youtube="http://youtube.com/watch?v=M6ZjMWLqJvM"]The Last Knit[/youtube] OR [youtube="M6ZjMWLqJvM"]The Last Knit[/youtube]
Enjoy the new feature and feel free to use this thread as a testing ground for your new powers!
