How To Post Youtube videos here - Primer
« on: March 28, 2018, 03:44:00 PM »
Some people have wondered about how to post videos here and to, at least for browsers, to get the title caption to show up.

It may take two steps, the 2nd one being editing.

One starts out with the simple youtube link:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=db-mNRO16t4&list=RDdb-mNRO16t4

Now, then, take the s out of https:

! No longer available


That will make the video show up, now, where is the title?

Take this out of your video's URL  in edit, you will see it.  Take out all of this stuff....----> [ b] etc. to right before the [/url]

From what I know, no posts have been deleted per my role as moderator. If anyone knows of a post removed or any other problems in posting videos, perhaps you can clue us in.

Rule #1: I don't want "censorship", I know some youtube.com videos for songs can be a bit "sexual", if one knows what I mean. I think we should exercise judgement ourselves as to whether it could be a bit "strong" for the forum.  Sometimes, that might be the only video for that song, so exercise judgement, maybe make a disclaimer about the content if one thinks it could offend some. A lot of those rockabilly videos have images of Betty Page and the like. I don't find those suitable and I'm the main fan of rockabilly type of music.

I just posted about the PBS series Country Music by Ken Burns,and can't find it.

Is this because of chemo brain,or did I do something wrong?
Ever think you would be arrested for NOT wearing a mask when entering a convenience store?

No, @sneakypete

That happened because that thread is in the "General Area" not the "Music Thread".

I think it is fine there, if someone wants to move it they can.

This area is a subsection of the "General Thread".

@TomSea

Ok,thanks.

I obviously screwed up and posted it in the wrong section. Probably cause more problems than it would solve at this late date to move it.
