Rather than just showing the link?

All you have to do is copy the http link to the video you want go to the link button on the forums and paste your link in the pop-up and click ok. Done.

Many thanks for that info.


Hmm... still just shows the link rather than embedding the video in the post...

Are you planning on using YouTube videos?

If that doesn't work, try typing in media and /media in brackets like this [] [] and in between the link you pasted in the forums.

OK, this is what I get when I add media /media in []s:

[url="https://youtu.be/NU9-F442Pw4"]https://youtu.be/NU9-F442Pw4[/url]

The 'url' tags are automatically added - the address I put in was just https://youtu.be/NU9-F442Pw4

When you paste your video, it needs to have "watch" inside your link.

If I try adding watch?= I just get:
https://youtu.be/watch?=NU9-F442Pw4

or if I also modify youtu.be to youtube.com
https://youtube.com/watch?=NU9-F442Pw4

I'm stumped! But thanks anyway.
