Posting YouTube Videos - Updated process

(1/1)

Admin:
Due to the demise of Adobe Flash Player which is no longer supported in many browsers like Chrome/Edge etc, we've had to update how YouTube videos are embedded into posts. Instead of Flash we are now using HTML5 to embed them.

The process is very simple and not much has changed, but please refer to the updated instructions here:

How to Embed a YouTube Video into your post (updated Aug'16)

The new process means that YouTube links will appear as embedded videos in your posts. In older posts (which used the older embed system) they will appear as links for now until we get round to updating them (there's quite a few !).
