    Thanks for the link, Ron. However, UP 844 is a 4-8-4 (FEF). Nevertheless, a great video.
    Cheers!
    Marc

    If I may interject here regarding the inclusion of the YouTube video. I am not sure why it wouldn't work for you Ron but this is the way it should look: [ YOUTUBE]Ju6rvbu7Cps[/YOUTUBE ], minus the spaces of course!

    It is the Video ID that is used and this is the string of characters that follow the "v=" tag in the URL. Any other tags the follow are ignored, in this case it is the "&NR=1" which is ignored.

    Are they ignored (as in it's OK to sloppily cut/paste them into the [ youtube] [ /youtube ] space), or must they be omitted (as in if you paste them in there, the vBulletin code will choke)?

    So far as I am aware they must be omitted; I.E. Include only the "v=" string and nothing else. I have to go out for awhile now but I'll test it when I get back!

    In this particular case, yes it appears to be so. However, I would not want to say that it will work regardless of what the tag is. Thjere maybe some that will not work. Best to strop them off altogether - then it will always work!!!!

    Apparently it does not work for me. At first I tried "v=Ju6rvbu7Cps&NR=1" it did not work. Then I Left off the "V=" and again it did not work. I never tried it leaving off the "&NR=1"

    My fault entirely for not understanding the instructions.

    Thanks BryanC for your help and also TD.



    See ya

    Default you tube test

    I just can't get the you-tube "thing-a-ma-boob" to work for me.

    I'm bald headed and all the instructions must be slipping right over the top of my head.

    Here is a you-tube link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K9g_nPsJSxM

    What are the steps (for Dummies) I need to do to have it show up within the post and not with just the link?

    How/when do you use the "insert video" icon?

    The excellent instructions I've been given aren't sinking in. I'm just too thick headed.

    I use W7 and IE9.

    Thanks
    See ya
    Ron

    It was a you-tube link and the first frame of the you-tube video did not show up when I did a "Preview Post" It was just some kind of expansion of the link info.

    I'm just lost out in you-tube land.

    See ya
