    Will someone please teach me how to embed a YouTube video into a Fun post.

    I can copy/paste the url...

    But I want the picture (with the click to play) to appear not the link...

    Thanks folks

    JJ :Cool:

    PS. Anyone know how to get square brackets on the SGN2 Android phone?

    Hi

    I have never posted a Youtube clip on Fun, until now, but I seem to have managed it.

    Just copy the url of the clip you want to post then click on 'insert link' - thats the earth icon with what looks like a pair of sunglasses in front of it! Then just past the Youtube link into the box and its done!


    This is just a demo video I found, one extolling the virtues of French aires, not bad actually.

    Good luck

    Paul

    I just click the you tube heading
    ( the bit gogle finds when you play it)

    Then copy and paste whatever's in the box

    God knows how it works

    But then I use apple products

    They don't hurt my head as much :Eeek::Rofl1:

    You just copy the address off your browser and paste into a FUN message and FUN does the rest. All under Windows.

    I don't know if Android works like that. Cut and paste is where I find an Android touch screen is pants though that is just my lack of skills.

    Square brackets, aren't they under the number shift key at the bottom.

    From the ABC keypad go to the ?123 pad then above the bottom left key (ABC switch back) will be a key marked either ALT or =\> this switches you to a symbol keypad.

    Atleast thats how it is on mine.

    The ALT or =\> seems to differ on different machines.

    Thanks for the help folks

    At this time none of it seems to apply to mine device.

    Obviously an operator error...

    Still, keeps me out of trouble...

    I'll try changing my browser and my keyboard option.

    Right.

    Can do it on the windows laptop.

    Now let's see what if I can master it on the Android Phablet.

    On the deleted post, you had just duplicated the 'http://' at the start of the link.

    JJ? Please don't find out how to do it because at present only 98% of funsters post a YouTube link on every post . you may make this average up to 98% :Rofl1:

    JJ, i find, on the kindle fire, i have to delete the existing HTTP:// in the text box before pasting the URL.

    if i dont it duplicates the HTTP:// so the link wont work.

    it may be the same on your tablet.
