    This is likely the wrong section but hey.

    Anyway copy the URL and paste it in. The forum software should take care of the rest. You could manually fiddle with things but why bother.

    Just put the video code between the tags.
    For example: to include this video
    All you need is the oZvBuqRxaPs part.​
    Code:
    [youtube]CZcNWUzxpUo[/youtube]
    Result:


    Enjoy!


    Many people haven't gotten the hang of the YOUTUBE tags for embedding video in their posts.
    Here's a quick explanation:

    Find a vid you like on www.youtube.com and copy what's in your browser's address bar, here I found one.
    Code:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CZcNWUzxpUo&mode=related&search=
    Now, notice this part, between the v= and the mode=

    watch?v=CZcNWUzxpUo&mode=related&search=

    That's the identifier for the vid. There isn't always a mode= part at the end, only if you got to the vid indirectly.
    The identifier lives in the "v" directory on YouTube, so, here comes the surgery...

    1. Highlight and delete the watch? on the left side of the v
    2. Highlight the = on the right side of the v and type a / to replace it.
    3. Highlight and delete mode=blablabla if it's there at all, all the way to the end of the line.
    4. Now all that's left to do is to surround it in the YOUTUBE tags.

    Here's a quick visual rundown:

    Code:
    This:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CZcNWUzxpUo&mode=related&search=
     
    Becomes this:
    [YOUTUBE]http://www.youtube.com/v/CZcNWUzxpUo&[/YOUTUBE]
