Attaching Youtube to a post?

Post by granty » Oct 19th, '14, 22:43

How do I attach a youtube video to a post? I have one saved in my favourites ready to go .

Ive clicked on the youtube icon and I'm not clear as where to go from there.

A simple step by step instruction would be good.

Thanks in advance.

Cheers David.

Here is an image of what this post looks like as I am about to hit submit:

Now here is a youtube video I want to include:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tlxjng8h3Tc

Here is the code to make it appear in this post:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tlxjng8h3Tc

Except, as you can see, it did not work.
If I change https to http it does work:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tlxjng8h3Tc

I don't know why this is necessary, but it works.

Which, with codes switched off so you can see them, looks like so:

Note:
http:// rather than https://
www.youtube.com/watch?v=<video code goes here> rather than youtu.be/<video code goes here>
And then just put [youtube] around your url [/youtube]
