Embedding a video

I am passing on instructions on embedding a video, as I learned the hard way !!!!

1....Open a new response form

2....Look along the icons at the top and click on the film strip that looks like a ladder

3....Box opens with YouTube, Daily Motion and Google.... click to select

4....Find the clip you want to share...highlight the url on right hand side of page

5....Press control and C together

6....Go back to the forum response form and in the box click , press control + V together

7....Press ok and send....Dont panic if you press preview and it comes up as code... when you send
.... it comes up as your clip

8....Go back to where you found your clip on youtube etc and click to remove highlighting

.........................JOB DONE .................................

Second method, if you want the link to display directly the URL :

Code: :

Third method, this forum owns a functionality called 'Magic Links', that will convert automatically an URL into a clickable link, without needing to insert a BBCode tag nor http://. For an example, by typing
www.forumotion.comin your message, it will be automatically converted into a link :
