    Can anyone help me become a little less of an idiot? I see the youtube button to embed videos in my posts. But where do I paste the actual video link?

    Thanks in advance, and yes, I should be shot in the head for being so stupid... [​IMG]

    Put just the code of the clip you're posting into the youtube tags.

    Say you want to embed this video:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HCXr3ahxlvw

    The code is HCXr3ahxlvw, put it into youtube tags:

    Code:
    [youtube]HCXr3ahxlvw[/youtube]

    Thank you so much. I was pasting the entire URL in between the tags. One of those things that's simple but not very intuitive.
