Dum-dum question
« on: December 10, 2018, 10:34:50 am »
What is the proper way to embed video on this site?  If I copy an embed code from youtube, I get an iframe like so..

<iframe width="712" height="534" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/3UUWkr4FUlo" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe>

This doesn't embed anything in a post.  The markup just appears as is.  Are there some additional tags that need to be added to support inserting the iframe?

@randim
     Go to your Video and copy the URL address link up in the address bar of your browser.
           
Insert the url address link, not the embed code, between the hyperlink,
                  [url] address link [url]
it is the 2nd button above the row of the displayed smileys....

If you have further questions please let me know.

I use tapatalk or if posting on Susans site I keep control by linking to a free Imgur.com account. when I block the image from Imgur it is no longer available to be seen

In practice, you don't even need the url tags:
 


You can see what I put by quoting this post.  By the way, you can't see the video when you preview it but you can after posting it.
