How exactly do I do this? I clicked on the video embedding icon, but it asked for too many questions, about formats, size, etc. Do I just copy the youtube video address and paste it into the link/url section, and forget about filling out the rest?

Jake's Mom

Jake, 10yr old golden retriever (fractured his front right leg on 9/1, bone biopsy revealed osteosarcoma on 9/10, amputation on 9/17) and his family Marguerite, Jacques and Wolfie, 5yr old german shepherd and the newest addition to the family, Nala, a 7mth old Bengal mix kittie. Jake lost his battle on 11/9/2009, almost 8 weeks after his surgery. We will never forget our sweet golden angel… http://jakesjou.....ipawds.com ….. CANCER SUCKS!

UPDATE: These forums now support oEmbeds, which makes embedding YouTube videos (or Vimeo, etc.) simple!

  1. Copy the URL of the video's view page from your browser. (Or, get youtu.be "Share" URL)
  2. Paste the URL on a line by itself in your post editor.
  3. Save your post.

That's it! The video will automatically embed in your forum post. Follow the old directions below for embedding Flash movies from other sharing sites.

[begin original reply]

Great timing… I had just un-pinned this old topic about embedding media in forum posts earlier today! Way Confused

There are two ways to easily embed movies here in the Forums:

Use Video URL:

  1. Visit the video display page.
  2. Copy URL of video
  3. In your post/reply, click the Insert / Edit Embeded Media button (small filmstrip)
  4. Paste video URL into File/URL field
  5. Dimension fields should auto-populate and video should preview
  6. Ignore advanced settings, or be daring and see what happens
  7. Click Insert

Use Embed Code:

  1. Visit the video display page.
  2. Copy entire object embed code
  3. In your post/reply, click the HTML mode button ("HTML")
  4. Paste code where you want video to appear
  5. Click Update

In both cases, a yellow box will appear as a placeholder where the video will display upon sacving post reply. These same methods work for embedding video playlists as well as individual movies.

NOTE: These steps are based on and have been proven using YouTube videos. They should work for any site that provides embed code for shared videos.

Thanks for the info. Turns out it was really easy to do! I just added the videos to my last post!

I had read that previously and it works for the forum posts.  But it didn't work for my blog post?  Sorry to be such trouble.  I can't afford the Supporter, and am trying to just embed (I cut and past the embed text from youtube) it into my blog.  But nothing shows.  Oh well, they show over on the forum.  🙂

Now I have Miles, rottie mix amputee from a shelter and traveled 1500 miles to find his way here through the Rescue Railroad thanks to tripawds.com.  miles.tripawds.com

That's because these instructions are for embedding videos here in the forums, as the title says. Winker

Adding videos to Tripawds Blogs requires activation of the Viper's Video Tags plugin, and the Plugins menu is enabled for Tripawds Supporter blogs – along with other enhanced features – upon upgrade. For complete details, see these posts about embedding videos in blog posts, and all about Tripawds Supporters. Members without a blog, or those who choose not to upgrade, can always share their videos here in the forums.  

I hope this clears things up, sorry for any confusion. Thanks for asking!

@raka Interesting video you chose to test. Start a new topic if you have any questions about canine amoutation or to share your three legged dog's story. FYI: Your future posts will continue to require moderation until you register.

I am noticing that all of these posts were from more than a year ago. Maybe that's why none of the techniques worked for my forum post? I tried both the "share" and the "embed" options explained in the first few posts of this thread.

 

Any advice? Thanks in advance.

K, an 8 year old chocolate lab, was diagnosed with osteosarcoma of the radius and ulna on 12/23/11. She had stereotactic radiation to kill the bone tumors, and 3 rounds of carboplatin. On 3/16/12, lung mets were found. We tried several different kinds of chemotherapy to slow the lung mets but none worked. Finally, mets appeared at other sites, including her spine. She earned her angel wings on July 15, 2012. K changed my life, and I'll never forget her. Our/my journey is chronicled at romp-roll-rockies.blogspot.com.

Sorry about the frustration.

Now you can just paste the "share" URL in the box below the video, directly into your post, like this:

Jerry is correct. See the second post above we updated quite a while ago:

UPDATE: These forums now support oEmbeds, which makes embedding YouTube videos simple!

  1. Copy the URL of the video's view page from your browser. (Or, get youtu.be "Share" URL)
  2. Paste the URL on a line by itself in your post editor.
  3. Save your post.

To clarify: Simply copy the video's view page URL (or the Share URL) and paste it on a line by itself to automatically embed the movie.

Correct, you cannot add an iframe to forum posts, and no other code is necessary.

Simply paste the video URL or share link from Youtube or Vimeo into your post and the video will auto-embed.
