I told you right after. :geek:

Use the whole YouTube video URL, and it needs the sub-domain in front of "youtube.com" like "www." or "uk." etc.

Like so..
Code:
[YouTube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GRvugJ_lR8M[/YouTube]

Might as well test our built-in MP3 player while we're at it. This one does use the full URL of the MP3 file, since it's just pointing to the audio source.


Code:
Sharyn Maceren - Can You Wait
[MP3]http://www.sharyn.net/mneme/audio/SM-CYW-80clip.mp3[/MP3]

Not just you. I only had VHS copies, and the only version I could find was this "joke reel" version, probably because this is the one we liked to watch ourselves.

Hooray for digital and the 21st century. I get all my stuff on optical disc now. Which reminds me.. I need to go copy my old PhotoCD's onto DVD-R for long term storage, and probably also convert them into TIFF files. I don't think PhotoCD is going to be around much longer. Hopefully Photoshop CS3 can still handle it.

One of the coolest videos of all time!
Maybe partly because it's my favorite song of all time, but also this was one of the first freestyle videos I ever saw.

And Osby, you get an award for cool random video!

Update to YouTube BBCode:

We can now just use the entire YouTube URL. Lazy, ftw!

Old way:
Code:
[YouTube]123456789[/YouTube]


New way:
Code:
[YouTube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=123456789[/YouTube]


The original problem was that the "www." part could be random, depending what country localized version of YouTube you were visiting. That randomness caused a pattern matching issue until I realized that I could also pull that in as a variable and then just toss it out. The only thing to watch for now is that the URL must have that "www." part, which can also be "uk." or "jp." or any number of other country codes.

Good: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=123456789
Ungood: http://youtube.com/watch?v=123456789

I've gone through old posts on the forum to update the codes where I could. If you see something left broken, please let me know (or just fix it if it's your own post!).

Post YouTube video!
New NEW way!

YouTube has now standardized their shortlink URL, i.e. http://youtu.be/dCKkmHpgSbM, and they offer it up for easy copy-paste when you hit their "Share" button. Since this is always 100% clean and reliable, I've set up a new BBCode here on the forum that uses this, instead of the sometimes-random link URL from the browser bar. So..

  1. Watch the video you'd like to post on YouTube.
  2. Hit the "Share" button.
  3. Copy the youtu.be link displayed.
  4. Paste that link in here, select the entire thing.
  5. Use the YouTube button to automatically surround it with YouTube tags (or add them yourself).

Code:
[YouTube]http://youtu.be/dCKkmHpgSbM[/YouTube]
