    It's not often that you know you'll remember something forever the moment it happens.

    That's totally true! He did this amazing job. I was sooooooooo proud of him.

    My own personal rock star. lol...




    But I'd have thought it terrific even if he didn't do a great job. The fact he did was a bonus.

    On the YouTube page, there's a grey box on the right hand side. Towards the bottom of that box are 2 fields. One says 'URL', the other 'Embed'.

    In the embed field is a load of info about the vid, starting with stuff like width and height. Copy all that into your post as described earlier in Manuel's post (the bit about [youtube]}

    Now all you have to do is copy and paste the url and it automatically embedds it for you. Thank you, DanK!
