Got an iPad a few months ago . Can't figure out how to get the code off YouTube to link a video to post it . Can any one explain how to do this ?

I really need to update this so it's not that hard. All you need is the base URL from the address bar and only the base URL.

Code: Select all
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XXXXXXXXX



XXXXXX is a bunch of characters, the cutoff is at the ampersand as that is what is called a parameter. You need to edit the ampersand and everything else after. This will fail:

I had no problems when I had a lap top . Now with the iPad there is no codes with the video . YouTube has also changed there format . That could be the case ?

What format youtube is using is irrelevant as long as it's compatible with the system. If they using different format for Ipad it's so it's compatible. One of the problems with Apple is those devices are "walled gardens".

I'm assuming this is some kind of app? This may not solve your problem but is there a share button?

Watching a YouTube video on the iPad can be done in one of two ways. Directly in the Safari web browser or in the iPad YouTube application. I prefer the latter. If you do that an want the code to post here just click the icon to send an e-mail link. A new e-mail window will open and it includes the full video link address. Edit this link as Richard suggests, then copy it and paste it.

I really love my iPad. It's a expensive tablet but it gives a lot for that money. The retina display is outstanding, nothing else like it on the market. I subscribe to two one-line newspapers in pdf format. It's the only tablet has sufficient resolution so you don't need to zoom to read the full newspaper page width. The battery life is outstanding. Easily goes all day without re-charging. Yes, it's a closed system but it just delivers applications that work well. It does not replace a desktop or notebook. Tablets are just a new nitch product, with lots of portable convenience.

You have to buy the cell phone version for any of the mapping direction applications to work. Interestingly, the GPS hardware uses both the US GPS and the Russian GLONASS satellites.
