freitasm: For those who STILL DON'T UNDERSTAND BBCODE:
You enter only the video code (the bit after v= on YouTube URL) inside the BBCODE tags. Nothing less, nothing more. No full URL, only the bits after v=.
If the URL is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l5ZdLz6EFig&tag=dsjd&playlist=645djfjf then you only enter l5ZdLz6EFig betweent the [bbcode] tags.
Some geeks need to geek up a bit.
networkn: Is it not just less frustrating and more seamless to detect youtube urls and format them automatically ?
Yeah another forum I use does this really well, they detect the link and embed a player straight from it, no need for user code.
The instructions above for the BBCode never show the / or \ characters, which I often get the wrong way around for the end/close statement. It's the / character by the way...
