How to embed YouTube videos in your posts?

It's simple, just use clean url like this: << v= followed by a video id is the only part you need.

Then post it inside [yt] [/yt] tags like this (shortcut: press the [yt] button):
Code: Select all

Old way of embedding used video id only inside [youtube] [/youtube] tags, like:
Code: Select all

Both ways are valid, [yt] tags are more robust and can extract video id from any YouTube url as long as there is 'v=' present.
