    YouTube and Facebook Video Embed in Forums

    I have noticed not very many use some of the extremely handy custom BBCodes we have here on Diablo: IncGamers.

    Of course, people who helps out in forums or in DiabloWiki generally use the Wiki BBCodes, but primarily the VERY handy YouTube code is perhaps a mystery how it works.

    Basically, you can embed YouTube and Facebook videos directly in the forums quite easily!


    How To Use Video Embed Codes
    If you ever used bold or link codes, this should be fairly easy to grasp. Basically, you just add the video ID within [YOUTUBE] tags.

    The only issue is: You're not supposed to add the whole URL!

    Example:
    • [YOUTUBE]gBtoSVwrK6k[/YOUTUBE]

    Will look like this:



    Unlike link code, you only use the actual video ID. The video ID is the string of code you're shown after "http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=". in this case, this is the ID:


    If the string is very long, the ID is the little string before the ampersand "&".

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gBtoSVwrK6k&feature=player_embedded



    The Facebook videos work in the same way. Just use the Video ID, and add it in Facebook code tags:

    • [FACEBOOKVIDEO]1274003604326[/FACEBOOKVIDEO]

    Will look like this:

    [facebookvideo]1274003604326[/facebookvideo]

    I have a question.
    I find there is a Link icon on my FB wall. I click it and paste my YouTube video URL in the box and click share. The video will be embeded on my wall.
    What's the difference between these two methods?

    I am not sure what you are asking about...

    It sounds as if you are asking a question about how things work on Facebook. That's not what this thread is about. This is how you embed videos in threads on the forum!
