I want to share with everyone a tip I was told today on embeding a youtube video within your post. I have always just copied the URL and pasted the link for people to follow, but I have seen Jason (VanGoes) post them so that they display and play within the post itself, this is how he explained it to me:

There are a couple of ways to embed a YouTube Vid.
In the button bar above when creating a post, there are options to 'Bold' the text etc... one of the icons looks like a film strip (or a ladder with green squares for those who are too young to know what movie reel film looks like ) and you can use this to bring up a windoid to put the link.

Personally, I just type it...
Copy the URL of the YouTube vid...
Next, in the post you want the vid... Type... [youtube]
Now, paste the URL... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IqSmBfHBmKE
Finally, type... [/youtube]

Hope this helps,

It sounds simple when it is explained, I just never thought to look for the 'insert a video' icon! Embarassed

I am sure that others will appreciate the explanation!, thanks Jason! ff

So for those interested this is how it will display, here is a video I made of members vans mid last year. It needs to be updated, there is alot more of us now!

And here is one from the Victorian State Titles late last year
