    I'm not sure what brought about the change, but the way to post a video on Business Advice Forum using the [YOUTUBE] tags has changed. Previously you had to place the embed code inside the [YOUTUBE] tags, but now all you need to include is the video ID.

    By way of example I will use this video kindly created by one of our members - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MTUxFYod3HI

    To show the video in a post you would place "MTUxFYod3HI" inside the [YOUTUBE] tags by clicking the [​IMG] button above your post. Hence the input would look like this;

    HTML:
    [YOUTUBE]MTUxFYod3HI[/YOUTUBE]
    [YOUTUBE]MTUxFYod3HI[/YOUTUBE]

    Hopefully this helps, thanks!

    A minimal but effective feature Fergal. Thank you for the addition.

    Regards,
    John.

    Thanks John, however it wasn't actually an addition I made. It must have changed because of something YouTube did. The normal way of embedding videos stopped working and it took me a little time to figure out why. :)

    Yes. It's Youtube's fault since they made some changes on their embedding features since they added the "Embed by iFrames" a few weeks ago.
