How to allow HD Youtube video’s in Xenforo

Hello everyone!

I have come across a bunch of questions regarding the use of HD videos from youtube when they are embedded in Xenforo Posts. So I am here to show you the fix to this and how to make it so that your users can in fact use them.

So how can we do this you ask? Well let’s start and I will show you.

First navigate to your admin panel and log in. It will take you to the main admin panel page you are looking for BBcode media sites it looks like the image below:


So go ahead and click that and you will be taken to this page:


So what are we looking for? Youtube at the bottom I will highlight it for you here:


So click the youtube and you will see this pop up:


So there is one specific spot that we are looking for here. It’s called Embed HTML. Currently in there is this code:

<iframe width=”500″ height=”300″ src=”{$id}?wmode=opaque” frameborder=”0″ allowfullscreen></iframe>

We need to replace that with this:

&lt;iframe width="500" height="300" src="{$id}?vq=hd720&amp;amp;iv_load_policy=3&amp;amp;rel=0&amp;amp;showinfo=0&amp;amp;theme=light&amp;amp;color=white&amp;amp;autohide=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen&gt;&lt;/iframe&gt;


After you put it in and click save it will verify that you have done so. Now in order to really test this you just embed a video and see if it works like so:


So it worked!

If you have any questions please feel free to ask away!
