How do you embed a YouTube video so the player/screen shot shows up in the post. My brother does it all the time on his blog.

I think I have seen it (You Tube screens) on Sniffer posts. I followed the You Tube instructions and I get text only and no player.

Any help would be appreciated

I have wondered how to do this as well. Just experimenting; I copied the first link that you posted, pasted it in a reply, highlighted it with the mouse, then clicked on "insert media"(looks like this) http://www.fishsniffer.com/forumsyabb2008/Templates/Forum/default/media.gif

I don't know if that's the way to do it, but something showed up :)

Thanks Prowler

It apparently shows up when you post it and not in the preview. I tried that button but only in preview


Thanks

Interesting....when I hit the play buttom the video doesn't play smoothly. The play bar is faster than the downloading bar.

Do you find the same thing, or is it my computer. I have cable

This is the ulr link, lets see what that does?

I tried it again and it played fine

When your download speed is slower than the play speed, you get jerky interrupted video. But after you let it play to the end for the first time, the whole video is stored as a temporary file by your browser. So the next time you play the video, it streams from your hard drive rather than over your internet connection. The video will continue to play fast until the file is eventually cleared or overwritten.

Thanks Doc

Actually I tried to embed a few vidoes on another thread and did what I did above but it came up not there, just a blank

Are they reviewed before they posted?

What am I doing wrong. I'll try it below

It appears that your video is in Adobe Flash format. I don't think the forum software supports that.

It looks like it is working on my computer. Weird.

Are you copying the url at the top of the page when you are watching the video on youtube and then pasting it. Maybe you still have the last video copied or something. That is interesting.
