Is there a simple way to embed youtube videos while using a WYSIWYG editor

edited January 2012 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8

I like the CLEditor plugin, but i can't embed youtube videos with it enabled.
< code>http: //www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xm77JG6d99M< /code> didn't work.

I've searched lots of discussions on this topic, but i can't find THE simple workable answer.
or this a simple case of having one's cake and eating it too.

  • install formatting mod my friend.

    and this is how you insert your youtube:

  • Ah, couldn't be much simpler.
    Thanks a lot

  • or you could use the magic plugin. Does the same, but also gives image previews, and (If i remember correctly) one other video sharing site

  • Magic. Hmmmm.
    I found the formatting plug-in to be simple, so it will do for now.
    The magic plugin needs some tweaking. The embedded video is really small for starters, and i didn't find/see a preview. BUT if it has extra functionality it will be worth pursuing.
    Thanks for your help.

    Have you been messing with configuration? because on my site (http://cruxes.net) the embedded video fills the discussion width

    @domos123 thanks for using our skin, but you shouldnt remove attribution link or indeed change it to you.

  • @422 I mailed you about it and was told that I may remove the attribution once I removed the images by you, which I have done...
    If you want I'll put the attribution back, but I see no reason I can't alter it...

    U can remove it, but dont state the skin is by you. If thats ok
