This is an attempt to link to a video of yours, Ed..
Using the 'Link' icon (a chain link with a small plus), you get this..
This is the link text to this video
(The Erection Vlog, no less)
This is the text I copied and pasted
that is the absolute (unique) reference to the page which contains the video.
YooChube also has a 'Share' reference, thus;
I have no idea what the share link does so lets see what happens if I turn that reference into a link, thus;
Before posting this I have no idea what that as a link (https://youtu.be/udcSUgqBjd0
) will do (...it's the journey that counts I seem to remember someone saying to me on this board, wonder who that was?)
And now lets try the <> (code icon) to see what that does
I suspect it does nuffin..... so lets try the same again in a small wrapper which tells XHTML that the code is a link
<a href="https://youtu.be/udcSUgqBjd0"> This is the Link </a>
Nuffin again I bet
Conclusion: the <> (Code) Icon is a little device which takes code out of the flow of the normal XHTML page.
Edit after posting, both the YooChube 'Share' link, and the URL (hyperlink, copied from the browser address bar) link to your video.
I think we cannot EMBED a video into a post. We can only link to one running on another server.
I will have a go, though.
Embed test; just paste the code into the page to see if the code gets recognised and picks up the <iframe> (as the system did with the YooChube share link above)
<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/udcSUgqBjd0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
And with good reason, I suspect. It makes sense for this board to get other servers to run content if possible because otherwise this server would have to run the content, s l o w i n g it down.
Have a great weekend!
