How to embed a YouTube video on UKMIX

 

Postby Virgostar » Mon Jun 22, 2015 4:16 am

Because there's been some confusion regarding embedding Youtube videos on UKMIX, here's a little tutorial to bring everyone up to speed.

NOTE: This function isn't forum wide, so it won't work everywhere (it doesn't work in here, I've tested it!). Also, you're only allowed to embed one video per post, so keep that in mind.

1. Click on the YouTube button in the codes list above the posting window (it's next to "Font colour"), OR you can type it instead. How you do it doesn't really matter.

2. Insert your link inside the Youtube buttons e.g. https://youtu.be/mX61hqrEtnw (You can do the first 2 steps the other way around; again, it doesn't really matter.)

3. Remove everything but the last part of the link from inside the buttons e.g. mX61hqrEtnw

4. Continue with the rest of your post if you need to, or just hit Submit.

5. Et voíla! Your post should look something like mrlemonade's here.

I hope that my little tutorial has helped! If it hasn't, then feel free to ask a question.

It was the only topic I could think of at the time.

Shellzey, you don't need to delete any parts of the url, just paste the yt link between the yt brackets and the rest is done itself!

Yes, but when Kuba tried to put the full link in between the YT brackets e.g. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gp-lWgUDcKk, the video wasn't coming up, so I edited his post accordingly to just use the "Gp-lWgUDcKk" part or whatever part was left, if you get my drift. Maybe I didn't explain it well enough in the OP.

Just curious. Why can't we embed videos in the Artist Chart Analysis thread? I can only assume because you want it I the single thread and this is purely to discuss like it's said?

It's like the Formation era and I thought of embedding the official videos for the era. And just continue to edit the initial post to embed new official videos for the era.

Because we made the decision that we didn't need videos in CA - it's usually a section in which words and numbers are King.

I don't get why the games section had this function denied.

Yeah, I think this would be a useful feature.

I guess it's to avoid overkill, but having the chance to post two videos for soundclash type survivors would be great.

You... can't!
Use the basic "URL" function to link to the IG post.

Yes, if you want to post something not from YouTube you need to post links.
