I could not find a tip on how to add a video to a thread. Can someone point me in the right direction?

Copy and paste the YouTube URL into the reply box.

Take your cursor and highlight the link

Click the "YouTube" box at the top of the reply box. This will put a line of code on both ends of the URL and it will appear in the post when you hit the "OK" button.

Default RE: How do i embed a youtube video

I am having issues embedding YouTube videos to my posts as well.  I have tried everything suggested above, and none of it seems to work for me sadly.  The odd thing is that, when I do embed a video to a post, it DOES show up when I click "edit" and looks like the videos do above, but just looks like a line of text when I'm viewing the thread regularly.  I'd GREATLY appreciate any help regarding this matter so that I may become much more active on this forum.  Thanks so much!

Can you link me to one of your posts with a video in it?

The button that I had to hit is labeled 'source' if i recall-
I never found an actual Youtube button.
So I cut and pasted the link to the reply, then hit the 'source' button, and submitted-that seemed to work for me.
as you can see the test clip I added above.
