Okay minds out of the gutter.
In all seriousness this Feature has been long awaited and a long time coming. Now before you get excited

So it's not live yet. Currently this Feature is only available to Beta Testers, Alpha Testers, dA Volunteers *with Beta turned on* , Senior Members *with Beta turned on*, dA Staff/Admins and dA Alumni. However once ths Feature is released from Beta it will LIKELY be a Premium Members Only Feature as to conserve on data usage.

Hello Beta Testers :wave:
It's been on the wish-list of many a deviant for years, and now it's finally here :dummy:

Got it? :evileye:

And stay Devious
But I will still walk you through it in a nutshell
Okay once you are in the process of making your Journal you will need to do the following
1> Know your video type. Currently only Vimeo, Youtube, and deviantART Film are supported.
2> Simply enter the following codes to correspond with you video without the extra spaces
< da embed profile=Film id=Thumbcode here />
However do not use the word thumb only the numbers proceeding it.
< da embed profile=vimeo id=xxxx />
For vimeo video id copy and paste the last several digits of the video URL
< da embed profile=Youtube id=AXDXDX />
For Youtube you will need to locate then copy and paste all letters and/or numbers in URL between "v=" and "&Feature"
Please note that if done incorrectly the embedding wont work. Additionally errors could mean that either Youtube or Vimeo are experiencing difficulties and/or there is an issue with the video such as being removed.
Likewise if a dA Film video doesn't work it could be a dA issue or that the film was removed
thats all so enjoy sexifying your journal, sharing that hillarious Youtube vid, hell make a video for a fellow deviant then place it in your Journal.
Happy Journal Making and as always stay devious
