    I AM QUOTING FROM FAQ:
    “found the video above on this page. To embed it in the post all I had to do was copy and paste the URL this:”
    The original url was:

    youtube.com/watch?v=2y1Vty1hjZU

    “I just linked and then paste it into the post with special formatting, like this”:

    [youtube=http://youtube.com/w/?v=_dIya1aJJKA]

    HOW WAS THAT DONE? How do you change the normal url to that? Please help

    Thanks…

    Its very, very easy. Type the following into the HTMl text editor:

    [youtube=http://youtube.com/w/?v=

    After the = sign, type in the rest of the url from YouTube, then type the ] bracket.

    I have a video embedded at:

    http://imnotmarah.wordpress.com/2006/06/18/admin-admin-where-art-thou/

    This is my HTML to embed the video:

    [youtube=http://youtube.com/w/?v=rYe-MCwlkPE&eurl=http%3a%2F%2Fwww.fuckedgoogle.com%2F]

    This was the original YouTube url before I embedded it using the [ ] tags:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rYe-MCwlkPE&eurl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.fuckedgoogle.com%2F

    I really hope that helps. If it doesn’t be sure to post here again so somebody “expert” will try to–I’ve been using WP for less than 2 weeks.

    Not sure why you felt the need to ask this very same question three times in three different threads within 6 hours. :(

    That’s probably not something you need to be doing, OK? :)
