Is it possible to embed youtube links.

I thought we'd be able to post youtube links as embedded windows. But i cant tell if its allowed or not?

Im trying to cooperate with the Iranian and Pima teams, but without centralized communication its hard.

I dont think the embedded windows cost anything on your side, right?

To embed YouTube videos, please use the following method:

Press the Flash button on the message body toolbar to create [flash=][/flash] tags.

Next, copy the entire URL from the YouTube video you wish to embed, for example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a2inEjl6ju8

Now, modify the URL to replace "watch?v=" with "v/" so it looks like: https://www.youtube.com/v/a2inEjl6ju8

Now, paste this URL in the flash tags.

Last step is to add pixel dimensions to the opening flash tag so it looks like: [flash=420,315]

The whole thing will look like:

Code: Select all

[flash=420,315]https://www.youtube.com/v/a2inEjl6ju8[/flash]
You should then have an embedded YouTube video.
Thanks,
