Insert YouTube in the Your Post Toolbar

Feature Requests

Found 9 posts - Go to Last Post


Can we please have an icon added to the Your Post Toolbar that lets you one click Insert YouTube into your post.
Why? Or why just that one? Why not all of the other link/attachment/tags? There is already so much in it, and I would think 99% of inserts/tags are covered.

But, it is just bracket, youtube, bracket, video name, bracket, slash, youtube, bracket...

Simply put it would be more convenient.

I've asked for this at least twice.

So, how much time is worth spending by Eric to save a few moments by the users per week? So, frequency matters, a lot. If Eric's time spent to add this feature is more than the savings in time by the users, it isn't worth it.

Its either because people don't care or don't want to BBcode it in. Maybe if we did have the lazy button we would see more but I dont think its too hard to plug in the code in the post if you really want a video there.
I'm the kind of guy who stops the microwave at 1 second just to feel like a bomb defuser.
