Copy the youtube link/address where the video resides.  Click on the youtube icon at the top left above your post/reply window.  Paste the youtube link/address between the "[img][img]" that shows up in your post/reply window.

Rather than put img in the brackets, put youtube in the brackets like below....just use[ ] instead of the parenthesis.

(youtube)(/youtube)

or........

click on the little youtube button and paste your youtube url (without the s as mentioned above) between the brackets.

Well that's annoying.
It is time to refuse to tiptoe around people who claim respect, consideration, special treatment, on the grounds that they have a religious faith, as if having faith were a privilege endowing virtue, as if it were noble to believe in unsupported claims and ancient superstitions. - A.C. Grayling

I'm not seeing a youtube button only "img" then hyperlink/email/ftp.

Any ideas why not? I have posted youtube videos but only by googling and figuring out I needed [youtube] etc at front and back, clunky way of doing it.

We have changed the forum so that you can just paste the link into your post and it will automatically embed the video.
