Hi there,

does anyone know how to share youtube links, where not only the link appears but also the video itself... so you can watch it immediately on the forums. Saw some users manage to do that, but I can't Smile

Any helps appreciated,
Kaan

Look up in the upper right at FAQs and click it.
Scroll down to "Can I use HTML in my posts"

Adding a Youtube Video
The Magic Café now offers the ability to add youtube videos to your posts. This applies to any forum and the PM system.

In order to post a youtube video you will need the video's ID number. In the example below, xxxxxxxxxxxxxx would be your video ID encased with the youtube BBcodes.

Example:

(you tube)xxxxxxxxxxxx(/you tube) but with square brackets [ ] and no space in the word YouTube

The xxxxxxxxx is the last part of the share address. Example ----

Search YouTube for "Michael Vincent reveals his favourite books" then click the "Share" link. You would only use the letters at the end starting with the "v" And ending with the "U"
So type (youtube) the code, then (/youtube) again using square brackets [ ] and no spaces. Once you enter, it will look like this -
