    just like the subject says.


    a few tests:

    <object width="480" height="385"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/AX0rnK14lJM?fs=1&hl=en_US"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/AX0rnK14lJM?fs=1&hl=en_US" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="480" height="385"></embed></object>

    [media]<object width="480" height="385"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/AX0rnK14lJM?fs=1&hl=en_US"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/AX0rnK14lJM?fs=1&hl=en_US" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="480" height="385"></embed></object>[/media]

    I use the IMG Code link from Youtube.  It will post a picture of your video, but when a member clicks on it it goes to the video at youtube.  The only possible problem with this is you need to make your youtube album public.

    I found some other YABB forum help that says to use the [media][/media] tags that pop up when you hit the flash button (2 to the right from the image button, but it doesn't do anything so maybe it is disabled.

    where do you get the image code?  I only see the embed button at the youtube site.

    When I drag over a picture in my album it shows a drop down menu with 4 options.  The bottom (4th) option is the IMG Code which is the same used for posting pics.  I'm trying to remember if I've seen embedded videos in Ktog.  I know what you're talking about and have seen them elsewhere but cannot recall if it's been done in here.  That was only the second video I've posted in here and I just used the IMG Code to do it.  I did just try adding the media brackets to my video in this post using the direct link as well as the IMG Code, but it was unsuccessful in preview so I dropped it.  I believe the "Insert Flash" button may literally be for Shockwave Flash videos, and I don't even know how to make one of those.  I, like you have tried all four options with and without the media button, and the only one I can get to work at all is the IMG Code as a direct copy/paste.  Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.

    Insert hyper link (just above the smiley face  :) and bold button) , worked for me with that link...

    url            .....................                /url   <like this with the brackets
    then cut and copied to this in HELP page premade format below

    [url =http://www.yabbforum.com]YaBB Forum [/url] < remove space from in front of = sign and next to last [ bracket...


    Use quote button and copy/cut from this post and you should be able to cut and paste it where ya want.

    I have to apologize ktwm.   :-[

    I was trying so hard to help last night I never noticed you were asking about Youtube vids.  Everything I was trying to explain last night was based on my Photobucket acct.  My video linked above is at photobucket.  I did piddle around with my one youtube video last night for almost an hour, but I never figured out how to embed it.

    Joe, I believe he's trying to post it so the picture of the video shows up with the little play button in the center of it.  Our version of Yabb may not be capable of this function though.  I just don't know.

    3wb, you are right, that is what I am trying to do.

    here is the YABB forum help I found: http://www.yabbforum.com/community/YaBB.pl?num=1285206057

    it shows a sample embeded video and talks about how to do it, but it doesn't seem to work here. Maybe it takes extra bandwidth and was therefore disabled. No big deal, but it would be nice.
