One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

Ok I'm gonna have to ask as I've tried and tried and failed! Embarrassed

How do you embed Youtube videos directly into a post?

I've tried copy and paste of the URL and embed code but all I paste is the line of code rather than the actual video  Sad

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks

If I post the video URL when copied using Firefox it won't embed into the post.

If I copy the same URL using Internet Explorer it works fine .....weird!!

Can't get this to work, and I am using Chrome. Does it not work with Chrome? I embed Youtube videos on other forums with no problem at all just by pasting the url from Youtube ( the one that says embed) onto the page. I tried using brackets as suggested, and still doesn't work.
