How do you post YouTube videos on PS?
« on: November 29, 2013, 01:45:39 AM »
Help me, guys and gals:

Must be old age but I've forgotten how to post YT thumbnails.  I know you're supposed to click on the YT box up there and in between the brackets you're supposed to post the YT link?  I did that and couldn't get it.

Your assistance is much appreciated!

Don't worry I don't know either so I will keep an eye for this thread.

[ /youtube ]

No spaces. Make sure the URL is http:// NOT https://

The YouTube Button when you're posting inserts the code, the link address goes between them.

Thanks, j menz, for the instructions.  I just went to take a look at a video I posted today and the link began with https.  Why is that?  I always thought it would be http:

OK, I'm going to try and post my video here with the thumbnail showing:

I think if you're logged in (even by default as in with cookies or whatever) it's https.  https is an encrypted connection, and google (who owns YT)  is using it more and more since the NSA revelations. If you're in the States or some other places it even uses it for your google searches now.

J_menz is like a hero for us less knowledgeable folk.
