The title says it all, I'm trying to put a YouTube video on a post and I'm having extreme difficulties in getting it to show.

Can anyone help me?

Did you make sure to use tags properly?

The usage is simply [youtube]<Video ID>

The Video ID number is found at the end of the URL like so:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A67ZkAd1wmI

Please note that the Video ID is case sensitive and may include dashes and other URL safe symbols...so copy/paste is recommended

Everything after the "v=" but before any '&' property.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QJFhoLVVwyM&feature=related
Anything beginning with an '&' is just an extra parameter that tells youtube where the link is from, and is to be ignored and stripped from the URL before extracting the video ID.

Example: QJFhoLVVwyM
QJFhoLVVwyM

Thanks Pachy. I got the video I wanted to show visible, and now Mods can lock this, if they wish.
