Could someone kindly walk me through the process of posting Youtube videos on this forum?
Either that or point me toward a post that explains it?

Very simple.

Go to the video on youtube. In the address bar you'll see the URL for the video. It'll look something like this:

Code:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PlLbBPCPLCs&context=C4c6e10bADvjVQa1PpcFMvchgKBxGU5gcyFmd3Gb9Z-SddwOavGwE=

All you need is the url plus the text after "watch?v=", so that would condense to this:

Code:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PlLbBPCPLCs

This is the standard URL format youtube uses.

Now when you're posting, there is a button for video above the message box. It looks like a small strip of film. Click that and paste the condensed youtube link (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PlLbBPCPLCs) into the box, then click "ok". It'll recognize it as a youtube link and put a "youtube" tag around it. This will embed the video in to the post, like this:



Simple, no?

Thank you so much, Pipegeek. That is actually a lot simpler than I thought.

No worries. If you do it once, you'll see that you can do this manually going forward by copying the URL into the text box, then just putting the youtube tags around the link. The forum software does the heavy lifting for you. cheers
