How do you post youtube videos? I think I knew at one time, but now it escapes me.

@snood,
Code:[YouTube][/youtube]

The problem is that you can't use mobile YouTube or shortened links for embedding videos. You have to use the links provided by a desktop browser.

I must still be doing something wrong. I right click on the video, click on "copy url code", paste that to the reply box, put [youtube] in front of it and [/youtube] in back of it. Nothing.

that's the shortened version of the url.

i guess it only works if you have the long version with "youtube.com" instead of "youtu.be" and the word "watch" in it...

So you didn't cut and paste it into the A2K 'reply' box, you typed it into the browser address bar?

@Region Philbis,
OK, it worked when I copied and pasted it into the chrome browser, then copied and pasted the long version into the reply box.Whew.

@snood,
Sorry that I mislead you; not having a smart phone, it didn't occur to me that posting it with a smart phone would be different.
