How to embed YouTube videos in a message


Thanks to our Chris we have a new button :) YouTube videos can now be embedded into a message.

So instead of having to click the link to a YouTube video, it can be watched inside the message box which is much easier than navigating off the page.
However videos cannot be embedded by using the "embed code"

select a video from YouTube which you wish to post on the forum. Highlight the "url" and right click, copy;

Paste the url code into the message box on a new line;

Highlight the pasted "url" and click the "YouTube" Icon, Your link should now have [youtube] at the beginning and end of your URL link

And that's it!

Hit the preview button, The player should now be embedded into your post   

Then hit the post button.
