    awesome

    I wonder why only some eruptions like that produce such an intense shockwave ?

    this one at Anak Krakatau didn't with any of its explosive bursts....

    You just need to put the v= section into the YOUTUBE tags (DPchWu5GB4M for yours). Don't include anything else like &t=. On the advanced tab, it's the one that looks like a TV. You can also quote another post that has embedded a video to see how it looks.
