HOW TO EMBED YOUTUBE VIDEOS

Hold down the left mouse button and highlight the link. With the cursor located over the highlighted link, click the right mouse button to bring up a window. Left click on COPY.

Return to the Swamp Runner Forums. Choose the forum and thread where you want to post the video. Choose either POST REPLY or NEW TOPIC to open the EDIT POST window. Place your cursor at the location within the text block where you want the video to appear. Right click and PASTE the video link. Hold down the left mouse button and highlight the link you just posted.

Now click on the YOUTUBE_SHORT button located above the text block. Two Youtube code brackets should appear on each side of the highlighted link.
