The BB code is [ youtube ] [ /youtube ] (with no gaps)


Then copy the bit where it says "embed" on the right hand side of youtube screen and paste it between those code brackets

So you get this:

<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/9z0SDPjOXN8&hl=en&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/9z0SDPjOXN8&hl=en&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>

Disclaimer: this is not my youtube account :p

Hope that helps! :)

If that doesn't work (for me it doesn't always work) you can also use part of the url code.

For example you have the url http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iMYbQ_oiNsA

the red part you have to put between [ youtube ] [ / youtube ] without gaps



like this:



iMYbQ_oiNsA

don't mind the random video :p
