    How to embed vimeo and youtube

    Ok... lots of folks still don't know how to do this, so I figured I'd post instructions here as well..

    Firstly, there are Vimeo and Youtube buttons that will generate the code for you and you just paste in the id of the video (not the whole url) between the tags.

    Anyways, an example of what the code would look like for vimeo (just remove the spaces)

    [ vimeo ] 7188087 [ / vimeo ]

    If you remove all the spaces it looks like this:

    NOTE: You are not pasting the entire url inbetween the tags. that is where most people are going wrong. just the id of the video (for vimeo it's a series of numbers. for youtube, it is a series of letters and numbers usually)

    The tags for youtube are [ yt ] enter_video_id_here [ / yt ]

    Again, just remove alll the spaces and it will work.

    Hope that helps. test it here if you need to.

    Jason, I noticed the other day that Exposureroom have embed tags for forums, with an example of dvxuser, how do these work? I couldn't figure this out at the time, but it would be great if this worked the same too.


      can the way you showed how to embed vimeo clips work with other websites or just this one

        I AGREE

        Does anyone see my video or just the I Agree thing? Everytime i try to post a video it doesnt show up it just says I Agree and nothing happens when I click that link.
