    Default How to embed youtube videos??

    Techie PTers,

    How do you embed youtube videos??

    I did the following
    - go to youtube video you want to copy
    - click on embed button
    - copy the link in the "embed" box
    - post into the body of the "Property Talk" thread you are writing

    BUT when I submit the post on PT the youtube link just shows up as text. No embedded video.

    What am I doing wrong??

    Hi Shane, just place the Youtube ID between the following tags.

    e.g.
    [ youtube ]jf_mHlJfPv8[ /youtube ]


    (Remove the spaces and you'll see the following video. BTW, this is an excellent interview where Jim talks about his investing wisdom. Highly recommended.)
