Default How to embed youtube videos in post and watch on phone

Here's a step by step guide on how to insert Videos in AF.

You should see the Icon on the Right Hand Side when you're creating new posts, or when you're replying posts in the advanced mode.




All Youtube videos have their own link, for example

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xGW5b1_5bss



YouTube Video
ERROR: If you can see this, then YouTube is down or you don't have Flash installed.

The common mistake made is, to paste the whole URL between the



As such, Many might end up doing as below (Trust me.. i did that my 1st time).



The CORRECT code to use, is to just leave the string of letters behind

In this case, xGW5b1_5bss

The Correct Forum Code should read




You might also wish to use the "PREVIEW POST" button to make sure the video is appearing as you would like, before hitting the save button

To Use the Google Video, You click on the Icon

Similiar to Youtube, you have to dissect the URL to show it in your posts.

For example,

http://video.google.com/videoplay?do...02697200402065

The URL Itself simply means

video.google.com <--- Server URL
/videoplay? <-- Action of the document
docid= <--- "Name of Doc is"

-6921702697200402065 <--- Name of doc/video itself

As such, your link should read



Again, please Preview Post before Submit

This will minimize the "wrong posts" and multiple attempt, and help keep threads short, neat and tidy

Cheers!!

The above can still work if you disable the "Automatically parse link in text" before you click "Submit Reply"

Also can click on "Share" in youtube to a shorter URL
to get the string (in bold) to insert

[YOUTUBE]string[ /YOUTUBE]

examples

=============================

Full link shown in address bar
'http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iz2cuhglbQ0&feature=related

Shorter link when click on "Share"
'http://youtu.be/iz2cuhglbQ0

Correct format when posting in a thread
[YOUTUBE]iz2cuhglbQ0[ /YOUTUBE]

=============================

Full link shown in address bar
'http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FWXjo8UPK3I&feature=share

Shorter link when click on "Share"
'http://youtu.be/FWXjo8UPK3I

Correct format when posting in a thread
[YOUTUBE]FWXjo8UPK3I[ /YOUTUBE]

=============================

maybe this is easier for most to get the string right

Thumbs up How to watch Embed Youtube on Phone.

This is to show you how to watch video that has been embed in a thread with no links using phone(most phone) as I notice that there are some forum-er that does not how it works so I hope this could help you out.


It is very simple , you just have to click on the "Youtube Video" on top of a video and it will bring you to the Youtube application which will load the video. The image below will give you an idea on where to click.




P.S: Hope you dont mind i use your vid , kheldor
Cheers
