Linking To YouTube Videos
« on: December 05, 2013, 13:27:40 PM »
In a previous forum when I linked to a YouTube video it came up in the post with the opening scene, and peeps clicked on it to watch.
When I try the same here, it just shows the url or embed code. Is that summat I am doing wrong, or a forum setting??

 :thanx:
Cheers,

I used to use clichés all the time, these days I avoid them like the plague. Now a cliché to me is like a red rag to a bull.

Click on the youtube icon and insert the link in between? NB some youtube vids are now HTTPS: so might not work.
