I used to do it but somehow forgotten the html thingy bob you know {tube} [ tube ] ( tube ) these what you me call it. So some help would be appreciated.

Last time I checked you no longer need a html thingy for youtube videos. Simply put the link in your post, let me see if I'm correct:

Yup, just paste the url as is.

Please don't go posting videos everywhere though.

Make sure to leave an empty line before and after the URL.

And don't use the mobile URL.

Does it work on gifs? I'm trying to do one, but it keeps untitling.

It should do, and normally does, but for some reason, it's not working.

You need the url placed between (img)(/img) to end with .gif

Before posting an image or a gif open the files in another tab to make sure they end with either .jpg .png. gif

(If you use giphy, click 'copy link' and select the second url)

@Sir_Anthony Yeh, I did exactly that first time with that gif, but it didn't work, so I tried another url in desperation. I've posted plenty of gifs here previously...

For whatever reason, browsing giphy on mobile leads to a 2 being placed in the url. Browse in desktop mode and you get exactly the same url but without the 2, then it works.

Perhaps because the exact same gif has been posted multiple times on giphy? The URL still works even when you put a 3 or 4 behind media, any number above that and it stops working.

@Sir_Anthony I've now got this page open in both my PC browser and on my mobile browser. In my post above, made at 9:16am, I can see both gifs on my PC browser, but on my phone browser it's only showing the one that hasn't got the 2 in the url. The other still just shows as 'untitled', so I guess it's a mobile browsing issue.
