How to embed video into your post on InterSystems Developer Community

Hey Community,

Here is a short article about how to embed a video into your post.

There are two approaches.

1️⃣ With the recent update to the UI/UX of the Developer Community we implemented a new approach. Now, to insert a video you need to click a button Youtube

and fill in the form

Either provide a URL to the video, or paste an Embed code from step 3 of the next approach.

2️⃣ Another approach is to do it manually, just follow the steps:

1. Open a video you wish to embed in YouTube:

2. Click Share and choose Embed:

3. Copy the contents of the upper right  textbox or just click on the Copy button in the bottom right corner:

4. In your post on Community switch to Source view:

5. Insert the copied content from step 3 exactly where you want it to be:

6. Click on the Source button again to return to the WYSIWYG view and continue writing your post.

This is it - this is how you embed a YouTube video into your community post.

Hope it answers one of your questions on how to write on Community ;)
