    Add BB Code Instructions for Videos

    Could the instructions for placing you tube and other videos in post be added to the page below? I have tried various tags I found for VBulletin Board forums, but they do not work when I use preview.

    For Youtube all I do is copy the url and paste it in the message...nothing else.

    Thanks. Many sites use the [youtube]value[/youtube] tag. But with no instructions it is unclear. Some sites use value for those other than youtube. I had a video from cnbc I wanted to post, but when I used the url or embeded code it just displayed text.

    That's happened to me on YouTube before, but only when the url is https:// instead of http://. Not sure why. Once I remove the 's', it works fine.

    It does, but for some reason the forum software doesn't like to link to an https youtube vid. No idea why.
