Let's fuck some shit up
OK, there's been a bit of confusion on how to post YouTube clips. Allow me to clear things up.

The correct way to post a YouTube video is as follows.

Only take the string of code from the end of a youtube URL and paste it between the youtube code.

For example, if you wanted to post a cute video about bunnies, you would find your favorite bunny video, like this one...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u7a3ByQjDY4

...and copy everything after the = sign. You would then paste it in between the youtube brackets, like this.

Code:
[YOotUBE]u7a3ByQjDY4[/YOUTUBE]
Don't put the whole URL in the brackets as that will result in a BORKED link. What's even trickier, is that you should also exclude the code that sometimes shows up at the end of the URL that looks like this: &feature=related.

If that's too complicated, just click the SHARE button below the video and copy the end of the URL like I told you.

The end result should look something like this.

[YOUTUBE]u7a3ByQjDY4[/YOUTUBE]

Another method which has been glitchy for some users is that you can take that really long code in the <EMBED> button and paste it between the youtube brackets.

It'll resemble something like this:

Code:
[YootUBE]<object width="480" height="385"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/u7a3ByQjDY4&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/u7a3ByQjDY4&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="480" height="385"></embed></object>[/YOUTUBE]
If you copied the code correctly, your video will show up, like this:

[YOUTUBE]<object width="480" height="385"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/u7a3ByQjDY4&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/u7a3ByQjDY4&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="480" height="385"></embed></object>[/YOUTUBE]

OK, if the second video isn't showing, that's because your browser sucks and you should switch to something that isn't InternetExplorer 8, Netscape, or that old AOL free software you got when you bought your first dialup modem. iPhone users, you're just shit out of luck. Try buying something that supports flash next time. Like Android.

If you are using a decent browser and you get a BORKED message, just try refreshing your page. It might show up.

There you have it. Enjoy spamming the board with youtube links of fluffy bunnies.
