Problems adding YouTube Links to posts

925 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  Peter Redmer
Whenever I try to embed a YT video by using the supplied button, the link looks like this:

[ YT="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JYhmJAa5GZg"]Bonus![/YT ]

Yet to work properly, they're apparently supposed to be formatted like this:

[ YT="Bonus!"]JYhmJAa5GZg[/YT ]

(Both links deliberately broken with spaces to illustrate the point)

So what's the point of giving us a way to embed YT videos that is never actually going to work? :confused:

Yep, this has been brought up before as I recognize it's a bit confusing.

The way the plugin/menubar item works is that it looks for you to enter the YouTube video ID--the part at the end, as it includes the standard YouTube prefix already.
