[SOLVED] How do I embed a youtube video in a post


Guest yuan19900

Question

Guest yuan19900

 I would like to know how to embed a youtube video in a post. I copied the code provided in youtube then in the post use the "<>" tool to paste the code.

Example: When I try here.... so you can see the issue I'm getting (below)

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/R9So0UDGFsw" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

 

What am I doing wrong? Much appreciated for your help.

That's correct. Naver only allows embedding with the full URL but since the URL to the video is different than the URL to the page the video is shown on, there's a problem there. The solution is to enter the Naver code but since allowing coding on the forum is a legitimate safety concern (easy for hackers), the option to enter code is not allowed. 

I'll see if I can find a different way of posting Naver video's, but that's going to take some time since it will require breaking down their code and than writing a manual for it so users here are able to easily do it themselves (or at least by following steps) :) 

 

Thank you :)

Well, this is an entirely new post and it still doesn't work.
I clicked on the link, the YT page opened, I copied the link from YT,
pasted it here as an entirely new line, hit Enter without any space right after the link and the preview didn't show up,
which is as good an indication that it's not embedded. I even tried it with another new line.

It's a pity this new site doesn't have the old show code option.
It would be easier to just edit from there and embed the video.
Incidentally, what does the <> button do? All it says is 'code'.

Seriously, why don't we have a Insert Video under the Insert other media option?
It would spare the newbies having to ask around how to embed a video.

I've not had any problems embedding videos before by doing exactly what you've been advising those who've asked here,
but for some reason or other, it hasn't worked at all for the last week.
Any idea what's wrong?

Dunno. Let's see if it works for me:

 

 

 

 

All I did was go to the video, recopy the link and add it again to this message, then hit enter. Could you try again? See if it works for you too?
