      So Easy?

      OK,  Here is the step-by-step Tutorial for YouTube Video Embedding with screen shots.

       

      Step One - Find the video you wish to embed on YouTube and locate the SHARE button below the video to the right...

       

      Step Two - Click on the SHARE button to pop up the Share Window...

       

      Step Three - Click on the EMBED button at lower right to pop up the Embed Window. Highlight then Copy all of the Embed Code shown. I cant' get the highlight or the right-click pop up menu to show on a screen print. If you need help with basic tasks like Copy and Paste then please post a question thread. I use Firefox, so after selecting (Highlighting) the text, I right click my mouse and click Copy...

       

      Step Four - Go back to Large Scale Central and start a New Topic.  Enter any text that you wish to introduce the video, the click in the Insert/edit video button...

       

      Step Five - The Insert/edit video window will pop up. Click on the Embed tab...

       

      Step Six - Paste the embed text you copied from YouTube into the box on LSC, then press OK...

       

      Step Seven - Finish out your post with any additional text then press POST TOPIC.  Note, the thumbnail of the video will not show in the editor, but will show up after it has been posted...

       

      And here it is - It's So Easy

       

       

      If you have questions, please post a new topic.

      Thank you Jon for a very detailed instructional post. BD needs to make this one a 'Sticky' post.

      Thanks Bob.  This was the "test" to be sure it all worked. I added this same post to Eric's "New Instructions" which is now the sticky and as Greg suggested, I asked Bob to lock it so it wasn't confused with comments and questions. I'll answer any questions here, or in a new post.

      Maybe that's why your video doesn't show in the post you just made?

      Sean,

      The code you embedded did not have https://       It was just http://    That was the problem. I copied an embed code that was https://.  I added an "s" to your code and it works. I do not know where you got the code you tried.

      Please tell the folks playing along at home why the preview size is different in your fix of Sean's post Vs. the Embedding method.

      The size is what the "Copy embed code" function provided. The share function provides a smaller squarer (if that's a word) size.
