just a quick one but when you post vids from youtube do you put in the embedded code then put youtube tags around it or do you put the link then tag. I couldn't figure it out.

Inside the tag, you put whatever is after v= in the URL. That should be all you need.

You use a specific part of the embedded code.

Example:

<object width="480" height="385"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/VRgmyv4_eNA?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/VRgmyv4_eNA?fs=1&amp;hl=en_US" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="480" height="385"></embed></object>^
That is an embeded code, so you only use the part in bold for the youtube video. So, if you look for a part of the embedded code to your youtube video, use it in between the two tags it should work.

Another example of how the tag should look like when you have finished inserting the code:
v/VRgmyv4_eNA?fs=1&amp;hl
Final outcome:
v/VRgmyv4_eNA?fs=1&amp;hl

I hope it helps, I tried to explain it my best.

I hope you don't do all of that yourself; unless you're good at easily spotting out the video ID in the midst of all of that. ): If you look at the embedded coding and the bold set of information you pointed it, you'll notice it's part of the actual video's URL. Basically all you have to do is follow what donvannj stated.

In the URL, C&P the last tidbit "V=___________" and put that in the middle of the Youtube tags.
