How To Post YouTube Videos On New Nairaland

I created a short video tutorial on how to add custom domain to Blogger blog, uploaded it to and decided to share it on While trying to insert the Youtube video in my post on Nairaland, I realised that the "insert flash" icon is no where to be found on the new Nairaland.

After trying all I can to no avail, I decided to mail the admin of the forum and he was able to help me with the solution.

So What is the Solution?

Copy and paste the url of the YouTube video in the post editor and publish it.

That's all. 

Note: The url must start with "http://" i.e it should be in this form: ""

I hope it works for you.
