I just added BB code for vimeo!
Click the vimeo button, which is along the left side of the text box, then put the URL in for the video. You will have to add WWW to make it work as it's not in the URL when you copy it from the Vimeo page

It should look like this

Code: Select all

[vimeo]http://www.vimeo.com/20478411[/vimeo]
and you will get this



If it doesn't work, check the www is in there!

And if you haven't worked out You Tube....

Use the You Tube button and copy the URL of the video between the tags, you may have to delete some of it, see below

The full URL for a video came up as

Code: Select all

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SM2kkOSLy6Y&feature=mfu_in_order&list=UL
But all you need is the URL up to and including the video identifier as shown below

Code: Select all

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SM2kkOSLy6Y
It will look like this in the tags

Code: Select all

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SM2kkOSLy6Y[/youtube]
and you will get this!

Update

Best place to get the You Tube URL that works is too right click on the video and copy the URL from the box that pops up, when you click "Get video URL"
Copy that into the You tube tags

The URL will look like this ......

Code: Select all

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I5RzmVYYS-k
This won't work, get rid of the "s" from the "https:" part of the link, so the URL looks like this.....

Code: Select all

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I5RzmVYYS-k
and in you tube tags.....

Code: Select all

Happy to Help
