« on: March 01, 2012, 08:53:47 PM »
Hi I was wondering how to post a you tube video in a post, for example I have this code yet it does not seem to work, just comes up as a code.

Thankyou

The vast majority of users such as myself use the Aeva media mod.

And if you don't want the whole AEVA media, you can just use the "AEVA-lite" video embedder.  It certainly makes the job easier.

doug68, I hope you won't mind if I move this to SMF 2.0 support.  It seems a better fit there.
