Go to the Youtube Page with the video you want to share. For example let's pick this video of our Green Machine on Youtube.
Here is the page link URL:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DLxLnMnBFd4

Click on SHARE Then Click EMBED

You will see code... but before you copy it, do these 2 things:

1. check the box USE OLD EMBED CODE
2. Un-check the box SHOW SUGGESTED VIDEOS WHEN THE VIDEO FINISHES.

Copy the code and paste it into your post here in this forum.



It should then appear as a playable embedded video like this:

<object width="420" height="315"><param name="movie" value=""></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="420" height="315"></embed></object>

Let me know if you followed these instructions but are still having trouble. Thanks! Ax

There is no option to use old embed code, sir.

I am the owner of a discussion forum and I cannot
post any Youtube videos. Any suggestions?

Thank you in advance

Right you are. Youtube has changed it's coding and no longer has OLD EMBED CODE. There are some workaround hacks for Ebay shown in some youtube video(which also doesn't allow Youtube's new embed code) but they don't work with Network54. I'm looking for a solution. If you find one please reply. thanks Ax
