    Hello, is there a way to view videos from you tube simply pasting the link into the text field to update the status?

    @ubernaut is right – it’s called oEmbed and it’s a feature provided by WordPress core. BuddyPress supports oEmbeds in activity updates by default. If you’re not seeing a YouTube video after pasting in a YouTube video’s link, then there is possibly a problem with your theme.

    @ubernaut or YouTube’s server is down (unlikely but possible) :)
