*I read the help faqs and I still don't understand it so maybe a mod can help me understand it better.*
-Ok, I went on Youtube to looked up the embed code.
Youtube video: The Gmod Idiot Box: Episode 9

-This is what came up:
<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/8-OLi4mnSho?fs=1&amp;hl=en_US&amp;rel=0"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/8-OLi4mnSho?fs=1&amp;hl=en_US&amp;rel=0" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>

-I have done this before, but now the page won't recognzie it and once I paste the embed code URL from the video (from youtube) to the box on my edit details profile page. It won't fit the whole embed URL into the box at all. Just some parts of the embed url. What am I doing wrong? Just trying to Host this video on my profile page on PC to show PC members what I like watching & showing a hilarious series or something...

--Another thing! I am not using a Norton Internet Security 2003. Some minor images won't show up on PC in general. Its most likely my computer from being jacked up with images and protection maybe..., But I really don't know. Maybe my computer just sucks.

-Thanks for helping PC! If this thread is pointless. Please feel free to VM or PM me to solve this and close/delete this thread... : )

If your doing it on a profile you'd have to type v/8-OLi4mnSho in the blank where it says 'youtube url' in your case.

Basically, you'd have to type part of the embedded code, not all of it.

EXAMPLE: your embed code URL is <embed src=http://www.youtube.com/v/Dgvd9_Ts1>, you enter v/Dgvd9_Ts1)

[I know that's from the example; I just copied that. ^.^]

Yeh, I know thats the example. I got confuse at first because its not the same as the example, so I don't know why I was having so much trouble on a simple thing. I'm just really out of it. I can't figure things out on computers too well... Its working now. I aprreciate your help! : )
