    No, the default forum classic has an example page with embedded bbcode for youtube. So I assume the default forum comes with a youtube bbcode for embedding.

    I use AME plugin from vBorg, you paste the URL to the video and it auto embeds it upon save. Can't get any more easier.

    I believe I am following all of the steps correctly but when I add a video identifier it shows up like this, with one of teh brackets missplaced. HOW did I do that? If I move the bracket and drop this line in the post, it works great! Quick help me, I am about to get a knife and go play in traffic!


    [YOUTUBE="BC-j1fAWcrY"][/YOUTUBE]

    Here is a link to a thread on my forum where I tried using this and nothing shows because (I think) of the bracket moving.

    Update: I have been all over this, redid the code (cut and paste) and have gone through everything I can think of the it still moves the barcket and adds the = for some reason. I am at a loss about why this is happening. Anyone have any ideas?

    The image is missing, i believe. Looks like firefox browser.
    I am using firefox. I'll look to see why the image isn't there. Thanks.
    If you're using a custom style, check to see what editor path is defined for the style is versus where you put the image on your server (ACP => Styles & Templates => Style Manager => {your style} => Image Paths => Text Editor Controls Folder).

    for example:

    BUT, I want to put the whole url

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UiyQGphHgGc
    Sorry, but it is beyond the scope of bbCode to try to reverse engineer the videoID out of the Youtube URL. Teach your users how to copy everything after the v= and put it between [youtube]xxxxxx[/youtube] tags.

    Allowing your users to post full HTML is a major security vulnerability.
