For this ^^^ the code would be oTELRr0jn90 in-between = and & copy and paste code and then voila.

TRY!

If your talking about sharing to Facebook then it works for me... (don't think you are though are you?)

this is just a test as im avin the same problem, after hiting the you tube tab im pasting a you tube video link inside, if this doesent work im back to square one


What you have to do is:

In your post click "Youtube". [ youtube ][ /youtube ]
In Youtube click share underneath the video. You only want the code so ignore the "http : //www.youtube.com/watch?v=" part but copy and past the code after the = sign and insert between the "youtube" brackets on your post.

First off, in the full post editor click on the youtube box at the top and you will see this appear
[ youtube][/youtube]

Now, open a second tab and go to the youtube vid you want and click on the share button under the vid and you will see a URL...
for example...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3LicNQpUh0o

now...

copy everything from this url after the v= in the URL (here highlighted in brown)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3LicNQpUh0o

now paste between the [ youtube]here[ /youtube]

And when you preview you will see the vid appear like so

[ youtube]3LicNQpUh0o[/youtube]

For images Right-click the image and click 'copy image location'

Then click the img tab up the top when you post and paste in-between.

I've seen over the past few days a few people have said they can not embed a video, so I made a little demo for ya....
