its great to be able to view a quick vid on a forum, but its hard work to make it full screen. i.e. a link would be better most times.

im not knocking this forum or any other but i rarely wanna watch a windowed video.

maybe bb code should also provide a hard link, as double clicking the screen dont alway work in vimeo etc etc?
i get this all the time from both vimeo an youtube at various sites
thoughts?

Did you know that if you click on the title of the YouTube video that it will go to the actual YouTube site and you can do it full screen from there?

yes thats what i find a pain, having to open a another webpage.

its obviously a youtube isssue, being able to enlarge the window would be far better.

Gents,

We need to develop and sticky a post on how to imbed a youtube video.

(Mostly because I can't figure it out and the current instructions don't help.)

All you have to do is find the YouTube video you want, copy the url in the address bar and paste it into your post. It will automatically embed the video (unless embedding has been disabled by the video uploader)
