Embedding youtube videos?

  1. Jan 12, 2012 #1
    I can't seem to embed youtube videos into my posts on this forum?

    For example if I want to embed this video,

    I press the youtube tag inserter thingie. and then copy the address between the tags like so.

    (youtube) (/youtube) I had to use brackets so it didn't try to embed the video.

    But it comes up in the post like this.

    Sorry, it is not obvious, but you just use the "v" string data from the URL. (youtube)aemXgP-2xyg(/youtube)

    The trick I use with these questions is just to hit the quote button on posts which have examples of what I need. You can then look at the original post to reverse engineer how to use tags in this forum.
