Im trying to change the video on the main page to a youtube video from my channel, but it won't parse the html or BBcode at all. How do we do this?

Most people who download this theme will not use an embedded video local on their server, but link to a youtube im sure.

Hello,

Using an mp4 on their site is actually pretty common with our members.

The template wouldn't prevent you from pasting any code in the editor. The editor may have settings preventing you from doing this, in which case I would recommend turning the editor off while you work on that area.

The media player itself also supports Youtube:

{s5_media_player media=[video] video_youtube=[Youtube ID]}
