Youtube and the forum

Post by JAFO »

I thought I couldn't embed youtube videos because I was using my mobile phone, but now I can't do it through my PC either (Edge browser). What do I need to do?

My link shows an invisible square with an arrow. Someone said that's the issue, but I can't see how to remove it.

eg this link, the last one I posted, with a couple of spaces added after the www.
Ok. It worked. I had to delete the last few characters in the link. The &t=14s

Thanks @NationOfLaws

I tagged you in a post where this was explained. It’s not immediately obvious how to do it.

This is how it works and should look like.



If you quote this post and then look at the quoted section you'll see how the youtube link is embedded in 'square brackets' and must be from youtube.com

@Bahnstormer_vRS

Got it now. I had to delete the &t=14s from my link, which I presume is a time stamp of some sort.
Thanks.
