Hi All,

Just to let you know that it is now possible to embed YouTube videos in your posts.

This will be particularly helpful if you have a cutting or engraving issue you would like member support with.

It is also ideal for referencing solutions that are present in existing YouTube videos such as Russ Sadlers video series.

All you need to do is click on the YouTube button next to the post editing features and insert the YouTube Video ID (usually found towards the end of the video URL).

E.g. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=InnuX7boyEA you would use "InnuX7boyEA"


Example youtu.be/InnuX7boyEA [YouTube]VideoID[/youtube] example: [YouTube]InnuX7boyEA[/youtube]

Let me know if there are any issues with the feature and if you think it's of help.

Hi All,

Just to let you know that I've not yet figured out how to play the video in fullscreen mode, however there is a workaround.

Hover your mouse over the video, you should get a small window pop-up. One of the two options is "Picture in Picture". If you click on this, it will open a moveable and resizable window that will give you a larger playing area.

Hope that helps.

Gareth
