How to Embed Videos/Media

To embed a video from YouTube, you must use the link in the address bar and not the link from the "Share" button.  A YouTube link also needs to have "https" at the front and not "http" and be a "youtube.com" link, not a "youtu.be" link.


When you paste in a YouTube link, the forum should automatically recognise that it's an "embedded" link, and a barely noticeable black bar appears at the bottom of the editor, asking if you want to keep it as embedded or as a link.


Links from the following sites are supported for embedding: College Humor, Coub, Dailymotion, Facebook, Flickr, Funny Or Die, Gfycat, Google+, Google Maps, Hulu, Instagram, ReverbNation, Screencast.com, SmugMug, SoundCloud, Spotify, TED, Twitch, Twitter, Ustream, Vimeo, Vine, Wistia, YouTube.


However... links that were added before the upgrade (of June 2018) may no longer be embedded, it depends on how they were previously linked.

About Us

Founded in 2004, MS People UK is a community website and discussion forum by and for people with Multiple Sclerosis as well as for friends, families, supporters and those interested in this disabling condition.

If you’re newly diagnosed or want to ask about possible first symptoms, or if you’ve had Relapse Remit, Secondary or Primary Progressive MS for some time, a welcoming group of fellow MS sufferers is here to chat with you about MS symptoms, diagnosis and treatments.

The atmosphere is friendly whilst being compassionate, supportive and caring. Members also post about a variety of subjects not related to MS, as well as share jokes, talk about their hobbies, have fun, and more.

The MS People Forum is not responsible for advice or information supplied by members. We suggest you seek medical advice before trying anything.
