How to Post Youtube Videos Directly to Railroad.net

Post by Forest Glen » Fri Mar 23, 2012 9:44 am

I know how to post links to Youtube videos, but is there any way to directly embed Youtube videos on railroad.net?

Unfortunately, I don't believe videos can be posted with this version of BBCode. While you can do some fun tricks (like embedding a picture to serve as a link, like so: Image) there isn't a way to directly post HTML or do so via BBCode.

Later versions do allow you to directly post Youtube videos by use of a specialized tag, as seen below:

Code: Select all

This doesn't work on this version of BBCode, though I hope that Jeff Smith and the owners are able to move us to the new version soon!
