Step 3A and 3B

Step 3A. Select the size you want the video to appear on Boatfreaks. 640 works best. (circled in red)

Step 3B Take the code that is highlighed (Utube will highlight by default) and click Copy. (The code that is highlighted is circled in red)

Okay, I lied, its really 4 steps:1bounce

start a thread or make a new post in a thread on Boatfreaks, and in the message box, Paste the code that you copied in Step 3B.

Thats it. You have embedded a video.

Note: This will ONLY work in the General Discussion and Techinal parts of the forum. It will NOT work in the Off topic parts.

Cool! It worked. I've been trying to use the wrong embed code. Learn something new everyday.

Swede 12-14-2011 08:16 AM

Just playing around now. Change a few numbers in what code I get from smug mug and it seams to have worked.
