    Embedding a video player in your post/thread ~ Part 1 of 4

    Sign in to disable this ad
    your url should be of the form

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nBGQ1xVroqk or similar (maybe no www, maybe https, maybe vimeo, some other variants which are less common, these will not cause errors)

    I'm using the Frank Zappa 1988 Barcelona show as my demonstration link

    wrap the [video][/video] tags around your link [video]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nBGQ1xVroqk[/video]

    giving you

    Embedding a video player in your post/thread ~ Part 2 of 4

    If you get the garbage version of the player

    http://<a href="http://www.youtube.c... - YouTube</a>

    it most likely looks like this in the tagsets

    [video][url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nBGQ1xVroqk]Frank Zappa - Barcelona 1988 (Full Show) - YouTube[/url][/video]

    You will need to edit the tags to remove a spurious [url][/url] tagset that has been inserted by the vBulletin incorrectly or deliberately (it depends on how you entered your link in the first place)

    when editing in the wysiwyg editor, select the link and then click on the unlink icon in the toolbar (world with a red cross in the lower right corner) this will remove the [url] tagset

    if you can still not fix it, go to the advanced editor, click on the swap editor icon (top left icon) and then manually edit to remove the [url][/url] tags from within the soundcloud tags.

    you can use the advanced editor to drop a video linked player into your post/signature - it is the filmstrip icon in the toolbar, making sure you avoid the problems that arise with a random or spurious [url][/url] tagset present
