    Even with this option enabled, is it still possible to only have the link?

    If I try [PLAIN][/PLAIN], it obviously only makes it text.

    If you have auto embed enabled then media URLs will auto embed.

    If you just want links, disable auto embed.

    Thanks, Brogan.

    I do like auto-embedding, but I was thinking there might have been a BB code for those who like to make a list of YouTube videos, for example, just using links.

    Use the URL bbcode, e.g insert them as links via the link button in the editor...

    EDIT: wow. That embeds too.

    This is a video.

    EDIT: @Jeremy suggested this. It seems to work:

    Just type something, highlight it , click the link icon and paste your link in the overlay.

    Yeah, it works when you make hyperlinks, which I already knew. I was asking about raw URLs without disabling auto-embedding, but I guess it doesn't work. No big deal, though.

    Is there a place where we can set which links auto-embed? For example, I've seen some XenForo forums with auto-embedded Tweets but that doesn't appear to be the case by default.

    Media sites will generally auto embed (when linked to as a bare URL). There's no Twitter media site by default. I suspect there's a media site resource that will provide this.
