Ok, thanks to Maltay for teaching me this :)

For those who don't know ;

1) Take the whole youtube link, e.g. YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.THITFQxJ8BI

2) Seperate the video code from the rest of the video. The video code is the part in bold :)

3) Delete the rest of the link, so we're left with just the video code. e.g. THITFQxJ8BI

4) We then wrap Youtube tags around it. A tag is 2 sets of closed square brackets (these things "[]"), with a code inside them, which in this case would be "Youtube", another example would be "B" for bold, or "U" for underline :)

We should be looking at

[FAKEyoutube]THITFQxJ8BI[FAKE/youtube] now. (Obviouslt don't put the "FAKE" in, that's just so the video doesn't embed itself, and you can see what I'm on about..

Just post, and voila :)

Any other queries, just ask :)

BAH! I completely forgot about that one >.< Goddamit :(

Up to the mods to leave it, or delete it, but I kinda think it's in a more beneficial place here :P I don't mind though :)

I'm just going to leave this one alone, because this information is already in the thread new users are required to view. If they don't use youtube tags, it's not really an issue; the feature is there just to make things a bit easier.
