How to Embed YouTube Videos

Using this method you can embed as many YouTube videos as you like in a single post that you publish to your ReachBy Stream. Here is how to do this using ReachBy's Wiki-like markup.

1. Go to YouTube website and find the video you want to add to your post.

2. Locate the video id which is present in multiple places on that page, including the web link itself. For example, if the page link looks like this

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FFExfmPwskc

The video id is at the very end, right after watch?v= part. In this example FFExfmPwskc is the video id that you need to copy to the clipboard, so you can paste it later.

3. To insert this video, type [[youtube: and paste the video id. Then type a pair of closing brackets ]] to finalize it. For example,

[[youtube:FFExfmPwskc]]

4. To insert the video in a box of specific size, you can use width and height parameters like this [[youtube:width-height:video_id]]. For example,

[[youtube:400-300:FFExfmPwskc]]

Note: Parameters width and height each should have a values from 100 to 600.


This is how the default (full width) YoutTube video looks like.


And this is an example of the same video embedded in a 400 by 300 box.

Unfortunately, Vimeo is not supported yet but we'll definitely put it on our TODO list. Using == the way you described, simply shows the code itself, e.g. if you want to make a post on how to program or script something. Thank you. -- The ReachBy Team
