To embed a Youtube video (or similar flash movies)~

1. Get the "embed" code. It will look like this:

<object width="640" height="385"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/HEheh1BH34Q?fs=1&amp;hl=en_US"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/HEheh1BH34Q?fs=1&amp;hl=en_US" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="640" height="385"></embed></object>

OR

<iframe title="YouTube video player" width="480" height="390" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/wK7tq7L0N8E" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

2. What you want from the above code are the movie dimensions and the movie URL. Then you create the following piece of code:

[flash=640,385]http://www.youtube.com/v/HEheh1BH34Q[/flash]

OR

[flash=480,390]http://www.youtube.com/v/wK7tq7L0N8E[/flash] (Note how we replaced the /embed/ with a /v/ in this code.)

If you have a typo in the dimensions or the URL, noting will show.

3. Post one of the above into your post. Voila!

Thanks Gremlin. I tried that, but I get an error: "You cannot use certain BBCodes: [flash]." In the Options section of the message editor it says "[flash] is OFF". I suppose this option must be switched on by the administration. I’m sure it’s not intentionally switched off and I could post videos in the past. Other members may also have this problem..

This should work for you now. I have changed the global settings for users. Look at the top of your post editing window. You should see a button that says "Flash".

Remember to read my original instructions carefully.

I have now added to the method above because YouTube has changed its embed code. Please the method read - again - carefully.
