How To Embed Youtube Videos - The Tutorial
Okay ladies and gents, here it is, the definitive tutorial on how to embed Youtube videos in your posts on Foundation 3D.

I'll use one of my own videos to demonstrate.

First of all, your average Youtube video URL looks like this:


There are variations on this theme, of course, but no matter what it looks like, the part you need is what comes after the ?v=. In this case, that would be 2QNSYK4-VJ4.

Step 1: Copy that code.

Step 2: Paste it into your message.

Step 3: High-light that text.

Step 4: Click the Youtube button on the icon bar at the top of the text editing window (you must be in advanced editing mode to see it).

(click for larger image)

Finish the post then have a look at it.

If you wish to do it manually, the tags are (youtube) (/youtube) with square brackets [ ], put the code inbetween, like this:


again, use square brackets.
