Updated 2013: How to Post a YouTube Video on this Forum
Update reflects the current need to use the 'YouTube' button.

Video used for this update was filmed and posted by 'jeffreyb' at the 2013 Hip Trip:
http://youtu.be/IxUFDAhtfXg

Steps: In your forum post:
  • Click the YouTube button above the posting box.
  • In YouTube open the video to be posted.
  • Click on the 'Share' button beneath the video.
  • Copy the code and paste it between the YouTube links.
  • Your post will look like this  []http://youtu.be/IxUFDAhtfXg[]. I used [] at both ends in order to show how the link will look when posted.
  • Delete the []http://youtu.be/[].
  • You should now only see 'IxUFDAhtfXg'  between the links for the YouTube icon.
  • 'Preview' your post and the video should show and play.

My thanks to boonibarb for laying the ground work for this update HERE.
