  • Linking/Embedding Youtube

    How do you link or embed video to the Forum? Where it can be viewed here without opening a new window.

    Copying and pasting with the little filmstrip button does not work.

    Thanks.

    Like in this thread. Not a link. Actually right here and usable in the Forum.

    https://www.ridgidforum.com/forum/t42312-5/

    Used to be you could copy the browser bar of the video page, open a post, click the little filmstrip option, then paste it into the bar. Hit enter and it was there in the post. Not anymore. Or I could be missing something.

    Thanks.

      go to the youtube video you want. then go to the address bar at the top of your computer. copy and paste the address bar.

      if it wasn't for the forum, i would type 5 words a minute and never have figuerd out how to post a photo.

      for me the forum has been computer 101.

        That's what I've done. (Post 2) But doesn't seem to work. I'll try one right here. YouTube, copied the browser bar at the top, clicked the lil' filmstrip button in the post window and pasted it there where it says "Enter your video or URL clip". Here goes.

            your link took me to the jnw warthog roof drain video.

            so are you asking how to get the video to show up on your post?

              Yes. Just to recap.

              On that post, I typed the words. I had another window open with the YouTube JNW video up. I copied the url at the top of the YouTube page. Came back to the post window, clicked the filmstrip button, hit paste to load it into that box, then hit enter and post.

              That exact procedure used to show it like you have your video above. Now it just links it for some reason or obviously I'm missing something.
