Do you mean to embed a YouTube clip into the body of a message? [In reply to] Can't Post

No, I don't believe that is possible here. However you can link to the URL of the YouTube page by using {url}yourURLhere.com{/url} (just replace the { brackets with the [ brackets).

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

As I said, [In reply to] Can't Post

I don't think it's possible on TORN's message boads. But the URL link is displaying perfectly. :)

Actually, you can but.... [In reply to] Can't Post

you have to use Basic Editor. YouTube embed codes are in HTML and TORN's posting default is Markup. You can only change that using Basic Editor.

1. Go to YT and click on the "Share" icon. Choose "Embed" and copy the HTML embed text.

2. Come to TORN, open your posting box and switch to Basic Editor. Write your post and include your embed code.

3. At the top of the posting box there is a drop-down menu that says "Post Style". From that menu, choose either "HTML" or "HTML and Markup".

4. Submit and your post should show up with video embedded.

Important note: If you try to edit your post or go through the preview process, it will try to revert to the default (markup) and it will lose your embed code. So if you need to edit for any reason, you will have to go back through the process and re-insert your code.

Roads go ever ever on
Under cloud and under star
Yet feet that wandering have gone
Turn at last to home afar.
Eyes that fire and sword have seen
And horror in the halls of stone
Look at last on meadows green
And trees and hills they long have known.

You need the embed code, not the url. [In reply to] Can't Post

When you go to the YouTube page, below the video is "Share". When you click on that, it gives you the url and also some other options. You need to click on "embed" which will give you a pararaph of code, beginning and ending with <> brackets and including things like width and height parameters. That's the code you need to cut and paste. Using any version of the url by itself will only link, as you have been doing.

If you are using a mobile device, you might not be able to find the embed code. On my kindle, it only shows url or social media options.

I re-inserted the code for you. [In reply to] Can't Post

It seems to be working now. I got an error message about "unusual code" when I tried to open it the first time. I've never gotten that message before, so I don't know what went wrong. But when I re-copied from YT and inserted it, it worked. Go figure.

Yes, just noticed it worked fine, however [In reply to] Can't Post

the picture in the previous post is too large, dlnewhouse. If you resize the picture, and post it here as a reply, I will put it in to the thread.
