    How to post Youtube Videos without screwing up the thread.

    You know when you stick up a youtube link and it then breaks the page like below?



    Well there is a very simple solution to this. The issue if the S in the url



    If you remove the S as highlighted by the arrow above you do not screw the page up.



    The above was posted from the same url with the S removed like this...

    But the weird thing is that no writing below the video displays

    This is what is written above.



    And the title of the youtube does not display (the bit in the blue box).

    Damn, so easy. Thanks.

    may I suggest changing the title of this thread because I thought it was a question not a solution.

    If one of the mods want to do that then sure. However, the lack of a question mark on the end of the sentence should be a clue to most.... Perhaps put the word "SOLVED" onto the end?

    Youtube never used to insert the S before though perhaps?
    Looking at the YT posted a few years ago all the urls go...

    uk.youtube.com/1534176145614261246/steamingmunters

    or something like that.

    This poster has explained the above repeatedly to K. Hairy Backaruda who basically told me to shove it up my ass!

    It still isn't a difficult process.
    I believe the problems arrive when posters attempt to insert vids from the hosting side instead of simply installing the url in the proper TD tab - making the mechanics more complex than it needs to be.

    Though Sid's brief instructional sticky might be helpful, one doesn't need to be concerned with the added or subtracted "s" in the url, as it's already provided for in the TD upload process.

    http [only] dub-dub-dub dot youtube dot com/watch?v= video code

    It's a simple task.
    Same as posting images on a thread - regardless of how you transfer the pic/image to the forum - it's not rocket science. Some create the difficulty much more than it needs to be.

    I've learned to do the right click and use either copy or cut, then go to the site on the forum and right click again and click paste...works for me.

    A little bump as there is a raft of people fucking up threads with this at the moment. Got to keep things neat and tidy after all...

    Is there a reason why some of the sub-forums don't display you tube videos just the link?
    OR
    is it just my lack of posting acumen?

    They display fine in the "preview post", but when I click "submit reply" it just shows the link..

    ok possum shaggers

    youtube videos - stop posting the <embed> links - just post the http from your browser URL box at the top - if it has https then delete the s
    I have the flashblock plugin so I choose if flash elements load - also I do not allow my browser to automatically load youtube by not allowing with the requestpolicy plugin

    this is a youtube link correctly posted



    this is a youtube link where some moron has chosen to post the embed link

    as it is my computer and my browser and I have decided I do not like youtube and all the other websites that automatically serve me rubbish to dump their sh1t onto my computer - this is what I see
