Help - how to embed video in a post

Post by ADMIN » Sun Jun 03, 2012 2:34 pm

This is an updated tutorial, describing how to embed YouTube and Vimeo videos in a VK Logger Discussion Forum post... just like this one!

The YouTube method has been changed, as of today, so the syntax is the same as embedding Vimeo videos.

ie; All you need to do is cut & paste the video id only between the relevant [ YouTube ] or [ Vimeo ] tags.
Beware of other junk in a YouTube URL, often there is "&feature= blah blah - you just need the video id here

:idea: Please keep in mind that some users do not have access to high-speed internet, so it may be undesirable to embed any more than one or two videos on the same page.
