How to insert a YouTube video into the forum

First you have to have a YouTube video or a video that you would like to share with the forum.  Once you found your video you will see that YouTube will give you an embedding code.  This html code is use when creating a web page.  We don’t need all the code just a specific part of the code to make it work in the forum. I have highlighted it in red.

Here is an example of a YouTube code:

<object width=”425″ height=”344″><param name=”movie” value=”″></param><param name=”allowFullScreen” value=”true”></param><embed src=”″ type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” allowfullscreen=”true” width=”425″ height=”344″></embed></object>

If you look at the code you will see an….. Then a bunch of letters, upper and lower case – this is the code you need in red.

Inserting a YouTube video into the forum

Login to the mbd2 forum and go to the topic you would like to post the video in.  Create a new topic. Type your introduction text and on a new line type the following code.

[tube]cBcoN_yKow8[/tube] (don’t use my code, use your code)

The forum will handle everything else.  You just need to make sure you copy the YouTube code exactly as show, just the text, and no links.

That it!
