  • Video link / embed Tutorial

    Here's a tutorial for linking / embedding videos in a topic thread. For the most part this is based on working from YouTube, but the same idea applies to any video streaming site.

    Start by typing your text into the editor, but make sure you turn on the "Advanced Editor" by clicking the underlined "A" in the upper right corner:

      Go over to the YouTube video you want to link over, and click the "Share" option under the video window:

      Don't choose "Embed", you want "Share" - and it will bring up a link in the window that you need to copy and then go back over to your iBoats topic:
