How To Embed a YouTube Link In A Forum Message

[ Edited ]

How do you successfully add a YouTube link in a Forum post?  I have tried copying the embed code from a Youtube clip and paste into a forum response.  When I click Preview, the video shows up just as it is in Youtube.  But when I am about to post the message to the Wireless forum, the embed/html code is stripped out with an "invalid html" alert.

 

Anyone know the exact steps to take for adding a Youtube clip into a forum response?

Just testing this feature out with AT&T's new 4G commercial.

Hi Dcookie,

From YouTube:
Find the specific video you want
Click "Share" then "Embed"
Copy the HTML embed code it gives you.

On the Community:
Make a new post
Click the "HTML" edit tab in the text editor
Paste the HTML code

Awesome post, Pam. I didn't know we could Embed a YouTube video within a post until today. Just tested it out and it worked. I plan on using this feature to help others on the forum in the future. Smiley Happy

4G/LTE is still not widely built-out yet, if I understand correctly?  Mostly large cities right now?

I really hadn't noticed what phone he was using. Smiley Wink  AT&T continues to build out their 4G network everyday. To check on a location in your area to see whether 4G is available or not, you can use this link to view AT&T's 4G  coverage maps: http://www.att.com/network/
