Embedding YouTube & Google Videos into a Posting should now work.

You'll see two new buttons above the typing area.

I've simplified it as far as possible. All you need to enter (usually by Pasting) is the Video Identity Number (VIN). You then highlight this and click the corresponding button. (Don't get them mixed up, this only works for the VIN appropriate to YouTube or Google Video)

Examples of the VIN are given below.

An example of the usage is here: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=82

1) Google: http://video.google.com/videoplay? will be followed by docid=-1697805906900297328& (for example) ... the VIN is the bit between the "=" and the "&", i.e VIN=-1697805906900297328 in this case

2) YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch? ... wil be followed by v=JNZosqiJISs (for example) ... the VIN is the bit after the "=", i.e VIN=JNZosqiJISs in this case.
