How To Embed a YouTube Link In A Forum Message
Edited by RicoLX on Sep 18, 2011 at 12:54:37 PM

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?

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

I cannot embed videos either. Is it a perk for a specific user class?

Yes, you must be a Community Leader in addition to some other status to have embedded options unlocked on your account.
