Alright, this is really easy.

Most all forums use what is called "BBCODE" to make a lot of things work, such as bold and italics, inserting links, etc. I have added some youtube BBCODE to the forum.

For example, here is a link to a Youtube video:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3XsI2iGDjVg or

All you need is the code that comes after v= but before the &crap in the URL.
This is not needed: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=
This is what you want, the video ID: 3XsI2iGDjVg
This is not needed: [noparse]&feature=related[/noparse]
Now then, when you have your code, simply type this into the editor window:


... and you'll get this!

Yeah, I know, there isn't some easy button to click 2-3 times and paste the URL, but it's still more or less foolproof.

Embed away!

Some Youtube videos start with - or _ and are not alphanumeric video IDs.
For example,
-as7eth6w5 or _ser_9j5we could be an ID, so watch for those header characters.

I was going to edit a post in which I posted a youtube link but I'm unable to edit that post. I'm able to edit the other posts in the same thread but not the one with the youtube link. Weird.
