Just use Youtube Tags: [youtube]9u0EL_u4nvw[/youtube]

Quote from: Old wayDespite the fact that there is no YouTube button it is still possible to embed YouTube videos in your posts.

using the Flash BBCode you can embed the YouTube player object like you would in an html page but you only need the link to the player. This link is NOT the same as the link to the video but it does share the same video ID in the URL.

to get the link to the player open the embed option on the video page

Spoiler: ShowHide

Then copy the HTML embed code
Spoiler: ShowHide

The code will look something like this.
Spoiler: ShowHide
<object width="420" height="315"><param name="movie" value=";hl=en_US"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src=";hl=en_US" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="420" height="315" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object>

but the only important part is the URL inside the code
Spoiler: ShowHide

now simply put that URL inside some flash BBCode
Spoiler: ShowHide

and you have a YouTube video embedded in your post

you can change the width and height of the embedded video by changing the numbers in the flash BBCode [flash=420,315] means the embedded video will be 420 pixels wide by 315 pixels tall

Now that you know how to embed YouTube videos in your posts I expect you NOT to abuse it. Treat them like images and under the forum rules spoiler them.

I no longer keep up with posts in the forum very well. If you have a question or comment, about my work, or in general I welcome PM's. if you make a post in one of my threads and I don't reply with in a day or two feel free to PM me and point it out to me.<br /><br />DropBox, the best free file syncing service there is.<br />

Useful post. :)

Another way to do it, is this:
1. Take a normal YouTube link from the address bar:

Remove this from it:

Replace with:

Giving you a result like this;

Once all of that is done, you have your video(of course, you must use flash tags. see Ryex's post):

I guess I should add some youtube tags. ._. But Branden's way seems quick and easy enough.

EDIT: So liek, I added the Youtube tags.
