Youtube video

Hello all,

I see a lot of posts with integrated youtube video. But I cannot find out how
to do this. How to add youtube video to post (not just link)? Could you please help with this small problem?

How do you start a youtube video playing from the middle, like the one for Mecho Wars on the front page?

to embed a video, wrap the string of letters and numbers following ?v= in the url address of the video with [ y o u t u b e ] at the start and [ / y o u t u b e ] at the end, without spaces. for example, if the url of a video was http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O88k4i6pF1A, you would post the following without the spaces:

[ y o u t u b e ]O88k4i6pF1A[ / y o u t u b e ]
