    I just figured that there should be a sticky with how to use youtube tags at the top, seeing how its not the most straight forward code to use. Take this URL (convenient and amusing one Shoji posted in dragonmaw forums) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QTQfGd3G6dg.

    You DO NOT use the entire URL in between the tags. You simply use the code after the equal sign. "QTQfGd3G6dg" in this case. You surround those with 'youtube' in brackets.

    Example:
    HTML:
    [media=youtube]QTQfGd3G6dg[/media]
    and you get this:



    You can also link to High Quality youtube videos by adding 'HD' at the end. If you go to 'post reply' instead of quick reply, you can simply click [​IMG] or [​IMG] for HD and put the code in between the HTML codes.

    Hope this helps.
