How to Add a YouTube Video to Seven Forums Post

You've all seen something like this on SevenForums, a YouTube video inside somebody's post:

...and some of you are wondering how to do it yourself.

It's simple, just read along...
1 - First of all, go to YouTube and find your video.
2 - Now look at the URL - the actual web address of the YouTube clip:
Name:  you2.png
Views: 754
Size:  46.1 KB
3 - The important bit is the code after - in this case, it's Bvu1DU_RZ9w.

Select just the Bvu1DU_RZ9w part with your mouse, right-click and copy it.

Tip   Tip
Sometimes, depending on the particular YouTube video, you may see something like, if so, ignore the &feature=related bit of the URL, and just copy the Bvu1DU_RZ9w.

4 - Now, if you want to have the video inside one of your posts, click on the YouTube button in the post editor.
5 - The forum software will automagically insert an opening [YOUTUBE] and a closing [/YOUTUBE] 'tag'.
Name:  you4.png
Views: 758
Size:  9.7 KB
6 - Next, simply paste the Bvu1DU_RZ9w code that we copied earlier in between the two tags, like so:


Name:  you5.png
Views: 745
Size:  11.0 KB
7 - Finish writing the rest of your post, and the result will be:
That's it!

Happy posting!
