    Posted: 27 Jan 2011 at 6:39pm
This is easy instructions on how to turn that YouTube link into the actual video on your posts on this website instead of a link. Some of us do not have the easy film strip icon under the tools bar when we make a post that would automatically do this for you, like myself. This will ensure everyone can do this.

Why do this? Well to me, it makes it look a lot cleaner and you don't have to open a new browser when you want to watch a video someone put on a post.

Step 1. Find your video and copy and and past the link of the video on your post.

*note You want the defined shorter link, not the long link


Not this

Both links will go to the same video, but only one will work, the shorter one. Make sure it has the word watch.

Step 2. Insert [ TUBE ] yourlink [ /TUBE ] on either side of your link with NO spaces!

*note the / mark on the right side of your link MUST be there.

That's it, click "Post" and your video should be there!

Goodbye ugly looking youtube links!

If your doing this from a ps3 browser, press triangle to bring up the menu, go to File -> Copy Address of This Page

at the bottom right of your on-screen keyboard you'll see the 'Paste' icon (the clipboard with a paper on it)
paste your link in the URL place as described in the post above.
