Hi From the UK
« on: April 04, 2017, 05:25:52 PM »
Hello All

I normally post on model engineer, but after seeing a few interesting posts on this forum I thought Iíd say hello. 

My interests are all things metal work and Iíve been in the hobby for about 3 years after learning a lot from YouTube and in particular watching Double Boost. Iíve learned a huge amount from his channel and owe him a real vote of thanks! I also owe the chaps on Model Engineer who have been very helpful throughout the learning curve (although I still feel at the bottom!).

Iím interested in machine tools, welding, casting and like making model I.C. engines and other bits and bobs. I also enjoy filming it all and putting it on my small YouTube channel Ė Iíll add something to the Gallery forum soon!

David

Thanks all.

I'm just trying to create a post in the Gallery section with some links to YouTube but I keep getting an error message.  Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong.

Just a hyperlink works:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4qNaWJiOBh4

But using the Youtube markup failes

#Invalid YouTube Link#


Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong. I've got :

(youtube)https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4qNaWJiOBh4(/youtube)

- but with [] rather than () so I can show what I've got above :-)

Welcome Dave,
Not much help to you, but I just copy and paste the link if I want to share a video. BTW, did you mean to link to the BBC test pattern? Not much action there :lol:

You just need to paste the identifier part of the YouTube link between the markers

Thanks chaps - I see!  This time I've got  (youtube)4qNaWJiOBh4(/youtube)      - [] replaced with ()

I thought the BBC test pattern seemed as good as any for a test post :-)
