3. To embed a YouTube video, go to YouTube and identify a video you wish to share and then copy and paste the URL link into the embed box leaving only the Video ID in the field instead of the entire URL link
EXAMPLE: The video am about to post in my reply here has a URL link in YouTube as follows:
[url][sign in to see URL]
The bold part of the URL is the YouTube Video ID which you need to leave in the embed box.

Re: **NEW Feature**Direct Embedding of YouTube Videos** Jalal i have just one question with this great feature that we can use on or forum now.
Considering that we must block our number plates in our photos what is going to happen if we have a video but the number plates are shown?
Is there a chance that you would be selling X-Trail number plates for us to hide while we do 4x4 trips in the bush

Re: **NEW Feature**Direct Embedding of YouTube Videos** Hi Adrian,
I do understand that it's very hard to block number plates in videos without some advanced editing techniques which most members are not comfortable with, so as I previously advised when a similar question was asked, it's OK to leave the number plates shown in videos but try not to zoom-in on them when filming LOL
You can then search for your video by typing a search word/phrase, in this case I typed "x-trail forum" and got the search results for all of the YouTube videos relating to our forum.
You can then click on any of the video files to preview it and once you are happy that it is the video clip you want to share, simply select the "pick this video" and it will be automatically embedded into your post like seen below.
