    Default How to embed a Youtube video inside your posts

    First determine the actual link to your video


    Assume the actual link is:
    To embed the video inside your post, you would use the following in your post:
    Code:
    [ youtube]2U0EAySgLO4[/youtube]
    NOTE: I intentionally put a space after the first [ so the video would not
    try to display inside THIS post. DON'T PUT ANY SPACES IN YOURS!
    Code:
      Same for https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FIKPiwy9Qb8

    try to display inside THIS post. DON'T PUT ANY SPACES IN YOURS!
    HERE THEY ARE WITH THE SPACES REMOVED:

    When I arrive at my grave I want it to be because I was in a full-on foot draggin' power slide into the hole and my bike landed on top of me. My heirs can dig me out, turn me to ashes and spread them on my favorite trail.

    What we need now is an easy way to imbed a picture in a post without having to open an account somewhere else.
    This is a test.

    Similar to the way you upload the videos there is a dialog box that allows you to add the image URL. If you select "retrieve remote file" it will upload the file to the KTMtalk server and add it to your post directly. If you uncheck the box it will reference the image remotely which means that if the image is ever moved or unavailable then the image won't render in the post. I have found that there are times when an image will only render when referenced remote so if you are having trouble then uncheck the box and give it a try as well.

    The other option is to select the "From Computer", browse to the file on your local computer and then click "Upload File(s)

    For example, I browsed to the screenshot above on my notebook and added it to this post.

    Also, once you upload an image you can "double-click" on it to bring up another dialog box that will allow you to resize (among other things) the images in your post.

    i.e.
    Click image for larger version.

    The forum must have lost this functionality because I can't make it work.

    It's still easy to embed videos on this site, but embedding photos is hit and miss. To embed a video, right click in the middle of your video, click on "copy embed code" , then just paste that code into your post.
