@hugh Good idea – it’s going on our wishlist! It looks like there have been recent changes either at YouTube or NodeBB, so you can now drop in links to YouTube videos in the forum and they will automatically embed.

So, all you have to do is just add the link to a Youtube vid & it’ll get embedded by automagic!

@hugh I think the plugin installed was specifically for YouTube, and a more generic one might be needed instead, which supports embedding of video from multiple sources. :shrug_tone4: Something to think about!
