    A Better Way To Post YouTube Videos

    I just figured this out. If you use the icon indicated in the picture below then the video information will be displayed next to the video when you hit post. Some members had already figured this out. I was constantly having to type in a description before I posted.

      Doesn't let you.

      you are better off pressing the three dots and then the movie screen

      I just tried it, I suppose easier but it adds a lot of superflous info.

      90% of music videos have the Song - Band name next to each other. I just copy + paste that to do the other way.

        After you paste the url you have to press the add link button next to it. You get that error when you go directly to post.

      I like a bit of mystery

        i don't really care which of the ways people post videos, but I have been using the icon you're pointing at there to post links to news stories, and i think it looks way better because you see a thumbnail and headline etc.

        When you are on your phone and trying to post things from there it doesn't like the shortened links.

        Got told this bit of advice by another webmaster as they had a massive forum on vBulletin.

        Always manually use the [ video ] [ /video ] (without the spaces)
        It does get tedious but it's the way to go about it.

          tumbling.dice Now I think your original idea where you use the video icon and typed the artist and song names (I just copy + paste the text under the youtube video) is unequivocally better.

          a) The videos are quotable that way
          b) You can use the advanced search features to go and find a song you posted some time ago.
