How to Embed Videos on ND

I'm a visual person, so I like pictures when I learn something new. wink In this tutorial, I will show how to embed a YouTube video using the YouTube button. You'll notice there's one for YouTube and one for Google Video (Edit: I'm not certain if the Google Video thing works ). I will use YouTube for this tutorial, but the idea is generally the same: take the code from the link, press the YouTube button, delete stuff in the middle of the BB code, and paste the YouTube code.
Let's get started.

    1. Locate the YouTube link you would like to share.
    In the example below I highlighted the code in yellow.
    This string of letters and numbers is the code you will need to embed the YouTube video in your post.

    1a. If the link has extra stuff in it, making it more difficult to highlight the code you need,
    try going to the video's web page.
    When the video's page loads: scroll down, find the Share button, and click it.
    This will open the Share dialog, which contains the link with the code at the end of the link.

    2. So once you have the code copied from the link, come on back to ND and click Post New Topic.
    When the post editor opens, click the YouTube button.
    You should see the YouTube tags appear in the text box.

    3. Delete the text between the tags: ###VIDEO_ID###

http://lh4.ggpht.com/_c318bQtaWOQ/TClHH5j__dI/AAAAAAAAAEw/wlZ-ftdQfl4/s288/video%20ID.jpg

    3a. Paste your code within the empty YouTube tags.
    If you have the right code, you should see this in the preview, or when you submit your post.

    ·Notice that if you paste the whole link within the YouTube tags, you'll see a white sqare in the preview.

http://lh5.ggpht.com/_c318bQtaWOQ/TClHHVoevxI/AAAAAAAAAEo/bUKB7LSneWI/s400/incorrect.jpg

You should be good to go as long as you didn't post the whole link, like in the example above.
Click Preview to preview your post, or Submit to submit it!
Hopefully this helps a little.

Note: Obviously, if the poster of the youtube video does not allow embedding, then this won't work. But you can always post a link!

Re: How to Embed Videos on ND

So disable the YouTube and Google Vid buttons, and delete my post.

Also, curious as to why Flasblock is a problem? The flash blockers I've used make it easy to either a) add websites to an exception list, or b) temporarily disable to see specific content. Or is this something used in conjunction with dial-up?

This is not personal! You did a Primo Job on The Graphics / Presentation.


Though it's gone now, recall Blue's thoughtful (original) post on the subject of embedding and why it was referred to as “Etiquette“ to consider simply linking.


“So disable the YouTube and Google Vid buttons“

If it was “my“ site, they would never have been there to began with;

(Recall N R had the Same ToolBar - WITHOUT ‘em - ‘til 2007-09-26
when MOnTalk added the fletchers by request).

Which is how the “debate” at N D started,
and which sparked Blue‘s Post /Thread.


“Also, curious as to why Flasblock is a problem?”

Flasblock isn‘t a problem, it‘s a Salvation from those buttfuglyplayerthings,
the previously referred to (another thread): bandwidth hogs.

The reason the FlashBlock pics have been used in this Thread and previous posts, is because of how ugly they are (but at least it‘s FastLoadUgly relative to HogLoadUgly).

Finally, this hasn’t been about posters embedding on their own threads, opposed to linking - Just a simple request for “courtesy” for those of others.

Re: How to Embed Videos on ND

No offense taken, although I now realize that my blunt response would make it seem so. Sorry!

Unfortunately, I came across NR after it had closed. I'm sure there's a thread there debating the usage of embedding, but I haven't seen it. I usually search NR for various esoteric nuggets that might helpful to my journey. Which is why it's great that ND is here. More nuggets for the journey. And I ain't talking McNuggets. tongue

Thanks for the clarification on Flashblock, etc.. Think I might have missed Blue's original post, so it's good that you brought that up as well.

I do appreciate the feedback, and next time I'll try to revise my response so it's not so heavy handed.

Carry on!smile

For help on other things, the BBCode editor does have a Help button. So if anyone is wondering about images and other things...  smile
