Posting youtube link Q?

  1. Apr 6, 2010 #1
    when I copy and paste a Youtube link in the body of my post, I just see the text format of the link...BUT I see other PFers have posted the whole Youtube player (so you can see what the video is about before clicking on it)...How can I do that? Thanks.

    Click go advanced, then the little picture of the TV and then just paste in the serial number part of the youtube link

    or just type "["YOUTUBE"]" "["/YOUTUBE"]" -without the quotes
