Can't get Profile Video to work

Recommended Posts


So I'm fairly new to this website and while I was sprucing up my profile a bit I decided I wanted to add in an auto-playing music video from Youtube. I've only really seen 1-2 profiles that had such a thing but when I try to copy/paste the embed code and then save it the only thing that appears on my profile is like a miniature copy of my entire profile in the place where the video should be. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong or if there's an extra step that I'm missing? When I do the actual embed URL I get the weird mini version of my profile with no actual video playing anyway and if I just use the regular Youtube URL I just get a blank spot where the video should go. I've left the weird mini-profile version on my profile so that people can see it and maybe understand better what's happening. Any suggestions, advice or help will be much appreciated!

AHA!!! Sneaky sneaky smart person coding stuff! Took me a bit longer to figure it out but I got it thanks to your response Yasuno! Thank you so much!! It still needed the front part as well, so had to take the original URL "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b-elgADLjmU" and instead turn it into this "https://www.youtube.com/embed/b-elgADLjmU". So basically I just needed to replace the "watch?v=" with "embed" and then followed it with "/UniqueID". Just to clarify incase anyone else ever has the same issue as me!
