Inserting YouTube Videos in CB

Recommended Posts

I have no idea if anyone has come across this problem but it drove me crazy yesterday. When you click on 'share' in YouTube, the link does not work anymore with the CB insert media button. Apparently this has to do with the BB code. Whatever.

Less easy fix: Change the youtube link as follows:

This one will work:


You basically just add the 'www', take out a period, add the .com and then add watch?v=
