View Full Version : How do I embed a video from youtube?

04-01-2010, 10:10 AM
I have 2 vids in this thread:


I would love to embed them. I tried the embed code:

<object width="480" height="385"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/whG1gFXsdts&hl=en_US&fs=1&rel=0"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/whG1gFXsdts&hl=en_US&fs=1&rel=0" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="480" height="385"></embed></object>

As you can see, that is not correct. Help! :confused:

I figure after being part of PT for 3 years, I should learn how to do this! :p

In what forum besides this one were you trying to embed a video? We have that turned off in The Dog House, for example.

That is Dog General. I don't know how to embed a video.

See how nicely Laura did hers in this thread? I want to learn how to do that!

Paul will turn that feature on for Dog General, it's not you, it's the vBulletin settings.

We do want people to be able to embed videos, however, the ability to embed html is still not recommended for many forums. The next version - Version 4, of the software allows it better. We will look into whether upgrading is going to be safe for Pet Talk, and make a decision once we have done more research, okay? For now, just linking is best.
