    How to embed media:

    We no longer want to use the [yt*][/*yt] tags for embeding media. These are still used so you are able to view older posts from cod247 that used these. The default way should now be by:


    then selecting the red arrow..and pasting the entire link into the field in the overlay that pops up.

    To embed pics then select the blue arrow and paste entire link into field.

    When on desktop you can drag & drop pic from a desktop folder onto the post.

    Now members with more than 20 posts can embed media into your personal album:
    click on media tab and then "Add media":

    select "create an album" this is now your personal album and then will allow you to decide on the privacy of the album.

    An overlay will popup where you enter Album title & description. You can also can then select if its only visible to you, people you follow, members only, everyone including guests(non-logged in) or choose the users you only want to view the album.

    now you can select who else can add media to this album with the same choices as above. If you don't want anyone else to add media to this album then select owner only.

    if embedding pics select the red arrow and paste the entire link. If embedding videos then select the blue arrow and paste the entire link such as YT vids. This will embed the video under your profile which then can also be viewed from your profile page.

    *note you wil be required to add 2 tags for each media....2 variations of the game/pic being embedded. Search engines target these tags for better search results.

    This allows you to group all your best vids into your own custom albums. embedding vids aren't uploaded but are linked vids so any views to them will also add to your view count from where you embedded them such as Youtube.

    Then once embedded all your media can be viewed from your profile page

    and then once you embed your favorite media/clips/pics into your custom albums you can easily embed them while making a post/thread by clicking on:

    a small window will pop up at the bottom of the editor:
    showing all your media and then choose which ones to embed into message.

    If you have ANY questions don't hesitate to ask. No question about the functions of the new forum is too dumb. As it will take time to understand and navigate.

    When you post a YouTube video on a message, all you have to do is copy & paste this link:


    That works for some [or most of] these media embeds...

    Yes Carlos is correct just pasting the media link will auto embed as well....no need to muddy this thread with personal vid's as example's. There are specific areas for your personal vids.

    Also when adding clips to the media tab it will show up randomly in the media widget on the forum list page.

    Yes, I know, but I was just trying to show them how auto-embedding works. And how it looks when pasted. Eh. :confused:
