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.

Can I add on to this?

Is there a way to make the YT videos smaller? Having them so huge isn't the visual look I like for my posts, lol.

test

still doesnt seem to work for me lol. im posting links like the above OTL

Do you hit enter after copying the URL? 

If you do, you should see a preview of the video in your post. If you just add a space to keep typing, it doesn't work.:

Space: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FYqfHaAkplw 

No space:

Sigh..  I keep failing to embed a video.. can someone guide me? I already hit 'enter 'after I have paste the video URL . I insert the url into <> tag, isn't it correct?

That is indeed not correct. There are no tags needed. Just copy the URL and hit enter :)
