Embedding youtube videos


I embedded a youtube video into a thread on the main page.

I just want to make sure that this does not affect the bandwith of Fountains of Wayne.us.

I had a quick search on the net and it seems that it won't, but I just wanted to check.

I got no memory of anything at all......

It should all stream directly from youtube. No worries.

Ah, thanks for confirming that, I didn't want to stuff things up.

It looks a lot better embedding the video rather than just posting a link.

:)

How do you embed a video?

Embedding from youtube is pretty easy, just copy and paste the embed code from the youtube page (in the information box in the top right-hand corner, under the URL box).

In the case of Mexican Wine on youtube (on this page - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S4blhM9IU3A) I have copied the embed code directly below and voila!



As for cases when you are embedding from a site other than youtube or if youtube has the embedding feature disabled, I would have to have a look at that (I am no expert!).

Cheers.
