    I'm sorry noob question but how can I post youtube videos and also how do I post minimized youtube bars that only contain the audio of the linked youtube video? Figured I'd probably know by now but then again never took the time to learn.

    I don't know the exact [youtube][/youtube] things

    Is there a wiki or compilation of functions I can go through containing all the possible
    syntax's actually? Thanks.

    it's [ MEDIA=youtube]gaeA_xjMR_i[/MEDIA ] now, not including the spaces and where the random letters is the bit after watch?v= in a youtube url
    you can't do the latter at this point in time


    will probably include everything you need
    might be one or two missing since we have [WEBM ] now

    Thanks, I'm able to post youtube videos now.


    Is it possible to shorten/minimize this embed youtube to just the audio with no visual though? Just a bar with a play that outputs the video's audio. I've seen some other posters do something similar.

    Thanks for the link to the BB codes btw.

    Use YMP3-tags. They're WIP but they work, kinda.

    BB Code:
    [ymp3]h5l4Rt4Ol7M[/ymp3]

    Result:


    Those were replaced by MEDIA-tags when we upgraded to XenForo. Use them in the way Sakuya described or simply post the youtube-link; it will automatically convert to an embedded video when you post your thing* (at least through the Rich Editor).



    Ones that are missing are:
    • YMP3-tags
    • WEBM-tags
    • LINK-tags
      Using these prevents * from happening, in case you want to post just the link. Otherwise the forum will automatically replace those with the MEDIA equivalent even if you're using URL-tags (e.g. Youtube, Twitter, Tumblr, etc.)
    • CODE=RICH-tags
    As far as I know

    Meant the ones that are missing from the Help > BB Code page. [ymp3], [code=rich], [link] and [webm] all work but aren't yet.
