Still Can't Embed a Youtube Video

Tried different ways of imbedding in 'What are you listening to?' in Biker Hangout but nuthin works.

Is it because the HTML is off down in the lower left on this screen? I can't find how to turn it on either.

Thanks, Mark H.

Thanks for the recommendation but that doesn't seem to do it either.

Also do not put the ' ' at the end of the link.

That was to show what it should look like without actually embedding the vid

Can someone please help? Still unable to embed.

Should my HTML code be turned on? I can't figure out how to do that either.

Thanks, MH

Blow by blow instructions. I`m not trying to treat you like an idiot, I`m not sure how PC Savvy you are, so I`ve layed it out in easy terms.

1. Ignore the youtube "embed" feature
2. Pick the youtube video you want, highlight and copy the url from the address bar at the top of the page. In this case it is "http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zxSENC1jCsY"
3. When you post here, click on the triumphrat url icon, which is the one that looks like a world globe
4. Right click and paste the url into it.
5. Voila! as they say in Germany


6. As an edit, I have just noticed that all you need to do is literally copy and paste the URL into your post and it will automatically embed. No need to use the URL icon.

Got it!

Yep, copying the address bar works.

Wonder why a regular embed doesn't work here?

Thanks for all your help, Mark H.

The site is set up to automatically embed youtube videos, because they are so popular. So, while it makes it easier to embed the videos, it also fecks up the "embed" link from the youtube site.
