Embedding youtube videos?

Post by CountryPug » Sun Jun 27, 2010 4:17 pm

Can I embed youtube videos in my posts on this forum? I've tried a few techniques but nothing has worked for me.

It is possible for it to be done but requires a bit of admin work from the guys on here. They would then create a [ youtube ] [ /youtube] tag to use

I'm happy with just links...
