How do you embed a YouTube video?
 
I've seen people embed videos in posts. How do you do that magic?

When you view the video on YouTube, select Share, copy the code from Embed option, and paste it into your message here.

Ahh!!! for some reason, the video doesn;t work when I preview the post. So, I thought it wasn't working

Thank you

I've always had problems embedding videos. I figured it out at one point; another snopester had to walk me through modifying the code so that it would display properly. I was able to do it a couple of times and then it stopped working. When I copy and paste the embed code, I get nothing displayed in my post. There was an "old code" and a "new code" at one point, but neither ever worked for me.

Embedded videos sometimes don't seem to load immediately after you post them, but eventually they start working.

Good to know. It's been a few years since I tried to do it.

VHS has always been tricky.

I've discovered that for me it only seems to work if a click the "switch editor modes" button in the upper right before pasting the code. Otherwise the board tried to turn portions of the code into smiles and things which completely screwed it up.

It worked pretty well just now. I just pasted the embed code like snopes said.
