DO SO AND YOUR POST WILL BE REPORTED


I recently found myself helping a lot people correctly obtain/reconfigure the URL from YouTube for thier MultiMedia Section of thier profile. Some of which have gone by other guides and still cannot do it themselves.

So I decided to make a guide, hopefully to better explain, by going step by step. Also using pictures as guides.

****Note: It's sad that I have to say this. Reading and following the pictures is the key. sweatdrop

Having problems, with the guide. Can't quite understand it. Then I recommend using Saikatsu's Video URL Converter -- This also converts Google Video's.

DO NOT PRESS SUBMIT YET

User Image

Step #6 --Old School Profile Shown

*Now, erase "watch?" and replace the equal sign "=" with a forward slash "/ "
*The end product should look like the picture below.
*Make sure it looks silimar and press submit. If this is for the New Profile, Read the Next Step.
User Image

User Image



Step 6
*To Save, click "View"
User Image





*Note: This will not Autoplay the video, It will provide a "Play Button". See the next steps to Autoplay.
<---------------------------------------------------------------------------------&

exclaim NEW: Autoplay
To autoplay. After you have Changed the link properly as show above. Add "&autoplay=1" at the end of the url.
Example
http://www.youtube.com/v/LXZnh4IepjY&autoplay=1

exclaim Old School Profile Only - If you want to hide your Multimedia Box, then put this CSS Code in your Theme Override Box (Not the Multimedia URL Box)
#multimedia { visibility: hidden; height: 0px; }


exclaim New Profile Only - If you want to hide your Multimedia Box, then put this CSS Code in your CSS Box. Can't Find it. Edit your New Profile, Click THEME, Then the CSS Tab. (Not the Multimedia URL Box)
.media_panel
{ visibility: hidden; height: 0px; }

<---------------------------------------------------------------------------------&

exclaim NEW: Infinite Loop
Kamiko

**TIP

add &Loop=0 to the end of the url and it will loop endlessly with out going to the share and replay thing...

Example:

Autplay +Loop
http://www.youtube.com/v/LXZnh4IepjY&autoplay=1&loop=0

Non-Autoplay (Manual Play) +Loop
http://www.youtube.com/v/LXZnh4IepjY&loop=0

BIG VIDEO IN NEW PROFILE FIX
Well now, to resize it. You'll need to copy and paste this in your CSS. (MY Gaia>Account>Theme).
.media_panel embed{width:480px; height:360px;}


Important Note for Mac users Using Safari
Desrin17
I figured out the answer to my own question, actually. My multimedia shows up bigger in Firefox, but not in Safari.

So to any users who surf with Apple's Safari browser:


In the New Profiles, Safari will not show the CSS override code that makes your multimedia bigger. So your multimedia will appear small when you view it, even if the code is right.

It should work fine in another browser.

YouTube Playlist
You cannot autoplay the playlist


Ok, first off. You will need to make an account at YouTube if you don't already have an account.

Then follow steps 1, 2 and 3 in the first post.
Which would bring us to step 4.

Step #4
*Once you found a video you like. Click "Save to Favorites"
User Image

Step #5
*Once you have all the video's you want. Click "My Playlist"
User Image

Step #6
*Now click "My Favorites" if it's not already there.
User Image

Step #7
*Now put a check next to the video's you want in the playlist.
User Image

Step #8
*Above, there is a drop down menu "Copy Video's To:" Click it and goto "New Playlist"
User Image

Step #9
*You will be asked to title the playlist and give it a description.
User Image

Step #10
*Once you have titled it and saved it. Copy the Permalink.
User Image

Step #11
*Paste the link into the Multimedia URL box. DO NOT PRESS SUBMIT YET.
User Image

Step #12
*Now, erase "view_play_list?" and replace the Equal Sign "=" with a forward slash "/"
*The end product should look similar to the link below.

Having Problems Converting the URL

Something easier. Take the Embed Code, and fish out the converted URL.
Example:
Quote:
<object width="530" height="370"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/p/30D960947CF8DBBF"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/p/30D960947CF8DBBF" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="530" height="370"></embed></object>


So you just end up with the converted code already "http://www.youtube.com/p/30D960947CF8DBBF"

Still can't follow that?!

=http://www.playlistproject.net/loadplaylist.php?playlist=4990335
" menu="false" quality="high" width="435" height="270" name="mp3player" wmode="transparent" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" border="0"/&<BR><a href=http://www.playlistproject.net><img src=http://www.playlistproject.net/mc/images/create_black.jpg border=0></a><a href=http://www.playlistproject.net/standalone/4990335 target=_blank><img src=http://www.playlistproject.net/mc/images/launch_black.jpg border=0></a><a href=http://www.playlistproject.net/download/4990335><img src=http://www.playlistproject.net/mc/images/get_black.jpg border=0></a> </div>

*If it's too long for the Old School Profile Media, then you can take the URL to TinyURL to shorten the URL.
*For the New Profile Media, if you need to resize it, use this CSS coding:
