    YouTube Video Post How To on LPF

    I finally am able to post video here on the LPF and I thought others would find this useful. So if you ever want to post youtube videos here is what has worked for me.

    Okay this is goofy but here is how you get a video on the forum.

    1. Make a post with no video and actually post it , with no video!
    2. Find your video on youtube and click share then embed and the embed code will appear.
    3. Copy the entire iframe code that comes up after you click embed on youtube (not the old code, the newer iframe code appears to be the default, the older code will not work).
    4. Go back to edit your original post and paste the iframe code right into the body of the post as if you were pasting normal text. No need to add any other code.
    5. Save the edit and the video should show up.

    Note, the video only works when you edit a post that was already posted. It will not work any other from what I have tried.

    This is Kid Andersen playing the ThroBak '55/'56-SB P90 set with the middle positions tone out of phase.

    Note, I edited the above post immediately to add the iframe video code so you won't see an edit time but I did have to add the iframe code as an edit after I posted initially without the video code.

    Update. This method did not work in the Jamzone just now.

    I must admit, I kinda lost you after "Make a post with no video..."

    I know it sounds stupid but post the text you want for the video first without the code. then once that is posted add the youtube video code by editing the post.

    What is even stranger is it sometimes works the first time if you add the code from the start and not as an edit. But it always seems to work if you add the iframe code as an edit.

    I'll try posting this cool clip of Allen Hinds playing a Throbak SLE-101 Plus set at the Baked Potato and see if it takes without an edit.

    Okay so that time it worked by just adding the iframe code in the initial post, no edit! Try it both ways.

    Remember you are copying and pasting the youtube iframe code after clicking share and embed for the video on youtube. You are not copying the URL web address. Just the iframe code is pasted directly on the the text body of the post.

    I know the mods have lots of issues to grapple with as they upgrade the forum, but it looks like it's not that difficult to add the code to vBulletin to allow users to embed YouTube clips via a single URL:

    TB. Here goes.

    Go to the youtube page.

    Hit the share button - that'll give you 3 options, share -embed - email.

    Hit the Embed button, it'll then give you something that starts like this ....

    The site uses a "vintage" version of vBulletin, and YouTube has tons of "features "built into it to both provide security, monetize and track their videos. So the algorithms they use to embed them are constantly changing. This 2006 version of vBulletin was not designed to handle those recent algorithms which is why it is such an effort to embed them. Even if they are embedded and working properly today, there is no guarantee they will be viewable tomorrow... its just the way Google rolls...

    POST #12

    Can one of the Mods/Admin have a look into what's going on here? I tried to respond a question last night, and when I submitted my post half the text was missing, and I'd lost the edit facility. When I clicked on the status button, the system thought I was Xpensive Wino. Now I've got Tadrian's signature at the bottom of my post. It's all very confusing.

    To add to the confusion, I, tdarian (Tadrian mentioned above) can edit post #12. I could see where that could lead to words being put in other's mouths which around here would be more than a little interesting!

    This is weird Tom. I've asked Cogs to have a look at it, seems to be a bit of a glitch. Thanks for your help.

    Other peoples words in my mouth?!!! Perish the thought, I get in enough trouble with my own..

    Yeah, I would say try it first without editing. It seems to be working for me on the first try most times now.

    I don't know what's up w/that. It must be a permissions setting on the admin level.
    As a moderator I have the ability to edit any post, so what I see doesn't really help anything

    1. Right-click on YouTube video as it plays. A menu appears.

    2. Select "Copy Embed Code" from the menu.

    3. Go to your open post on the LPF.

    4. Right-click. A menu appears.

    5. Select "Paste".

    6. Click "Post" to send your video to LPF.




    Then wonder why nobody told you that Jr. Watson fronts Judas Priest in his spare time...
