Maybe we should outlaw youtube.

p.s you have to paste the link right after the equals sign and before the bracket - like so

Sometimes when you're posting a link from youtube it's from the mobile version or from an embedded version and you'll have to do a little surgery on the url to get it to work. I noticed linkes that have "feature=player_embedded&" in them work when you remove that bit of the link.

So change this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=pl ... -MkfzSy4p8#
To this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T-MkfzSy4p8#!
And put it in the youtube tags and you get this:

which you can get from editing the URL link - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PmFzNmju ... e=youtu.be

just take off all that garbage at the end for this portion of the url

once you get used to how the general/basic youtube url/"code" is it'll be easy to figure out

Thanks for the lessons. I've mostly been on message boards (yuku, etc.) where the youtube videos imbed automatically.
