To add a You tube video to your game announcement, first find the video you want on YouTube.com and grab the last part of the URL e.g JjDTpWFl2kA

Now add this bit onto the end of;

www.youtube.com/watch?v=

To form;

www.youtube.com/watch?v= JjDTpWFl2kA

I’ve added a space to stop these from linking to the video. There’s no need for Object or embed tags.

lol, It’s taken me about 15 attempts to get a version that’ll display but not be interpreted as a link to the video.

Just one more test ;)

@riq You should add a comment below the tags field to tell people only to paste the url into the post (when they create one).

That’s awesome. But what if I would want to give only a link to the Youtube page, without the automatic embedding?

Press the share button on youtube and copy the link in directly, no need for <a href=…
