Embedding Youtube Videos in a Forum Post

Soul Source automatically embeds youtube videos into a forum post

To do this you do need to know how to 'copy and paste' on your device (phone/pc)

 

To embed a youtube video you need to do the following

 

Get the url of the video clip you want to embed

  • Go to the youtube video page
  • Hit the 'share' link on the page
  • Copy the share url (see the image below - note -can use the 'copy' link)

  • Paste the url directly into the text editor on soul source

the link will show as below

then will automatically embed the link to the embedded video as below

  • Add any text to the post

The topic will now be posted complete with the embedded video - see comments below for example
