I think you can only embed youtube videos.

See the BB code listing for details.

Hi Joe, if you mean by embedding youtube videos I can help.
First, get the video's URL. (example:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UVEp3Dh-K0U)
Then extract the text concerning the video (anything between the = sign and the & sign)
That should leave me with this: UVEp3Dh-K0U
Lastly, add the BBCode. [y o u t u b e] [/y o u t u b e] (No spaces) (Insert Text between)


The result is this:
Youtube link | Pop Up


Hope that helps.
