Step one: Copy the URL
On the YouTube page, copy the URL of the video.


Step two: New Volvo Forum Post
Come here, create a new post (or a reply to one), and click the YouTube button:

Click the YouTube button while posting.

Step 3: Step Back and Concentrate

The crown jewel of posting these videos is the video's unique ID. It usually (always?) follows v=

So the important bit is v=rofR--y14T4. Nothing else matters.

So the assembly begins:

1. http://www.youtube.com/watch? start with that
2. then put in the crown jewel v=rofR--y14T4

Code: Select all

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rofR--y14T4
3. then wrap it in the YouTube tags and click Preview to make sure it works

Code: Select all

I should add this is a fantastic way to help us diagnose your Volvo problem or question. Especially for those weird sounds that are hard to explain with words.

Or just to show off. I'd love to see videos of MVS members' Volvos performing. :-)

Want to test it? Please do here.
