    How to Embed a Video from Youtube

    Just so you guys know you can embed a video into the text field of a thread... This way users can view the video without having to leave SI. This is especially nice when viewing from a phone. Its very easy to do....

    I'm using a post of yaya's that I edited to embed as an example below. See the youtube url? Its surrounded by ... This is BB code so the site knows its a video.

    You can also do this by surrounding an image url with [img] [/img]




    There is also a shortcut to do this... At the top toolbar where you enter your text, there is a quote symbol, video symbol and a picture symbol. Click the vid or pic symbol and enter the url and it does the rest for you.

    Bottom right of the first post you want to quote click the icon on the bottom right. its a quote symbol with a + sign next to it. Then go to the second post you want to quote and click reply with quote. The reply box opens and you'll see both posts... To do more than two, just keep clicking the multi quote button and when you get to the final post you want to quote click reply with quote.

    Thanks for the info. This is pretty universal on any forum site if I am correct.
