How to embed YouTube video?

Recommended Posts

How do you embed a Youtube video in a post rather than placing the link to the video?

Just copy paste the URL in. The forum will interpret the code automatically and display the embed with key frame preview and title.

If you want the video to start at a specific timecode, play  the video, pause it at the desired start point and then click the 'Share' button underneath the video. If you select the check box underneath, it'll say 'Start video at x:xx' which should be the timecode you've paused it at. You'll know it has picked it up because the URL will be appended with t=XXX (x being the second count to that point in the video). 

You can't control the dimensions of the video coming into the forum using the method above. I'll have a play quickly and see if the forum accepts standard Bulletin Board convention to control the size of the video thumb but this may be what you need already. 

Hope this helps.

<style>.embed-container { position: relative; padding-bottom: 56.25%; height: 0; overflow: hidden; max-width: 100%; } .embed-container iframe, .embed-container object, .embed-container embed { position: absolute; top: 0; left: 0; width: 50%; height: 50%; }</style><div class='embed-container'><iframe src='https://www.youtube.com/embed/QILiHiTD3uc' frameborder='0' allowfullscreen></iframe></div>

Aah. Well, that didn't work. 😁

I think there are some limitations in terms of how Invision Community interprets third party embedded video or Dennis has configured the system to work in a particular way.
