How to post Youtube video in D.I.C. Post?

Posted 21 November 2013 - 08:33 AM

How do I post/embed a Youtube video here on DreamInCode? (NOT just hyperlink)

I keep trying different things with the "Insert Media" option but I seem to be doing something wrong. I've tried "Copy Video URL" and "Copy Embed Code" from Youtube videos when using the "Insert Media" option, but none of them show the video embedded when previewing my post.

Can someone tell me what to do here? I've never tried to post a video before...

I've tried the media tag with both http and https in the following, but in my post preview all I get is the link as regular text:

You posted : ?feature=player_embedded&v=oDAw7vW7H0c

You should remove the embedded player option from the url :
