    Auto-parsing YouTube links!

    Guys you no longer need to use the old tube BB code to embed YouTube videos on the site. Just paste the URL and the site will automatically embed the video in your post. I thought since we post a lot of videos here, this would be easier for everyone, I know it can be a pain using the BB code, and people get confused how to do it. No longer...just paste the URL!

    Oh wait! Literally just paste the URL and it's there. Don't even need to use the icon in the tool bar. That's cool.

    Can't wait for it to catch on.

    Tried it today ..works like a charm.
    EVH 1979: Well, actually it's not much of a vacation, because we run everything ourselves. We design our own album cover, we have to be in the office every day to sign checks - the whole corporation revolves around us. Nothing can be done without our approval. We even have photo approval.

    What about Tapatalk?

    I wish the app had an easy way, to embed vids. Maybe they do and I'm an idiot.

    I can't remember the last time I was on my laptop to view the Links.

    Thank you for this, Brian. With Tapatalk I was always frustrated with the [tube] tag because it would force me to go to the browser to open vhlinks.com to access the vid, a process that was always slow and clumsy. With this change I can access the vid directly through Tapatalk. This is a welcome and needed change. Thanks.

    I think that now both Tapatalk and the web client are the same. Just paste the full http YouTube link. It's one of the things that has frustrated me with Tapatalk for a long time -- you can't view the [tube] links through Taptalk -- you have to go to the vhlinks website and then click on the video. That's the reason that whenever I post a video, I post both the [tube] link and the http link. I know that it's easier for the website people with the [tube]-tag link, and it's easier for the Tapatalk users with the http link. Now I think it's the same for everyone.
