Posting Videos (updated)

Unfortunately YouTube seems to no longer work as easily as it used to with my Message Board's "flash" video posting feature since they changed to a new type of coding a few years back, so to embed videos from YouTube we must do it manually by clicking Share (Compartir) on the YouTube website to get a code that looks like this:

https://youtu.be/h0dnUTaRT5k

Then using the code for the video in bold text above insert it into the working code that looks like the code below. You'll have to remove the space after the first bracket and before the last bracket to make it work.

[ flash width=560 height=315]http://www.youtube.com/v/h0dnUTaRT5k?fs=1&hl=en_US[/flash ]

If your video is on a different service other than YouTube the process might not work. If your flash movie (with the extension .swf) is on a different server besides YouTube (yours or someone else's) and you know the URL of the file then you may be able to use the "Custom flash video" option and size it to your liking.
