I know other users here have placed embedded YouTube videos in a post, but I cannot get anything to display except the raw code.

Is there some trick to using the YouTube embed source code with UBB in a post?
It says "HTML is enabled," but HTML code doesn't seem to work when I use it.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

In the drop down box marked "Make post", make sure you have either "using HTML" or "using HTML and UBBCode" selected.

Quote someone’s post that has a video, cut and paste the section of code, replace the http with yours, change the drop down.

I have noticed that when editing a post there is no drop down box to select "using HTML" ect. Thus it causes HTML not to work after editing a post, in which the HTML for the post did previously work.

Known problem. I suppose it will be corrected one of these days.

So for now, make sure your HTML posts are done correctly the first time.
