Why doesn't my embedded video show up

<iframe width="420" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/eRg-9d24BHg" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

How come the video isn't embedded. I hit 'share' and 'embed' and copy/paste the link.

vBulliten does not use HTML formatting. It used BBCode. The way to get your video to embed is to use youtube tags and use the video code:

Your YouTube video url: http://www.youtube.com/embed/eRg-9d24BHg
The code you'll need: http://www.youtube.com/embed/eRg-9d24BHg
How to post the video: [youtube]eRg-9d24BHg[/youtube]

Youtube link | Pop Up

Or if you'd prefer: [hdyoutube]eRg-9d24BHg[/hdyoutube]

Hope that helps!
