    check this out: https://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showthread.php/199304-How-To-Make-a-YouTube-BB-Code

    In the scrollable text box where it says "code" - copy all of that.
    Then in the two places where there's "http://www.youtube.com/v/{param}" - replace the {param} with the youtube URL movie code.
    The youtube URL movie code is the part that's highlighted in red in the very last sentence.

    Do we like BB code? Is it any easier than HTML? Is there some real good reason why BB code is virtually never found on any other forums?

    I am glad you posted this question and John replied because I have tried it a few times and failed and got it to work one time. Thanks again for the info.

    as far as why "we" like it/the forums use it --- not a clue. maybe some of the more senior members or one of the CCOM folks could chime in.


    As far as trying to post different codes for videos, I've tried it before with zero success. The above code is the only one I've been able to post videos with.

    A little easier to read version is below (if it's confusing please tell me so I can make changes)
    I also added this to the "How to Format your Posts thread" in case this thread gets buried.




    ==========YOUTUBE VIDEOS==========

    To post a Youtube video,
    copy the following Code:
    <object width="425" height="350"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/{param}"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/{param}" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="425" height="350"></embed></object>

    And in the two places where it says "http://www.youtube.com/v/{param}", replace the {param} with the 11 digit video ID.

    The 11 digit video ID is found in the Youtube video's URL: the 11 character string comes immediately after the v= in the URL.

    The video ID is highlighted in red in the example below:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EViyBHOx8fE





    Please note: if your Youtube video is part of a playlist, there will be additional characters after the video ID.
    You do not need to copy these additional characters into the code.
    You only need the 11 digit video ID.

    In the example below; the additional characters you do not need are highlighted in teal and crossed out.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EViyBHOx8fE&list=UUz5aSfjolqVeNwhiX2EnKPg&feature=plcp



    The resulting, embedded video should look like this:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EViyBHOx8fE

    How do I post a youtube "shorts" video so that it appears on our forum looking and playing just like a regular youtuve video? I want it to play on our thread like regular youtube videos, instead of having to use a link taking multiple steps to leave the thread and go to youtube. Why is it different, and how do I work around it?

    Here's me posting a youtube shorts video.
    https://youtube.com/shorts/nmigCTy1CTk?feature=share

    Here's me posting a regular youtube video in the same manner.
    I click on the "share" button on the youtube page under the video screen.
    That brings up a pop up window and I click on "copy"
    Then I paste in here in my post.

    Take out "shorts/" (Don't forget the / ) and you're good to go.

    Don't look ↑

    Frank, are you saying to take off your shorts when posting videos on the forum?

    I'll gladly bomb you Tuesday for an Opus today.
