Youtube Videos

Pixy, I hear you cry, how do I post Youtube videos on my mee.nu blog?

Nothing could be easier, because mee.nu has a special [youtube] tag! 

Let's say the video you want is at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eWEjvCRPrCo

Just put this in your post:

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eWEjvCRPrCo]

and the result will be this:



You can also use a shorter form where you just specify the video ID, in this case eWEjvCRPrCo.  So

[youtube=eWEjvCRPrCo]

again produces:

1 Why am I only getting the coding back out, and not a video?  Am I stupid?

2 Hi henryjo.  Don't mark the youtube tag in colour; I do that in the documentation because it prevents the system from processing it - which is exactly what you don't want.

6 There.  Hmm.  You didn't turn off BBCode on that post, did you?

Don't colour the text the way I do in my examples, though - I do that so that the examples won't work so that you can read them.  If you colour the text it won't work for you either - probably not what you want!
