heres another tip:

when you find your youtube clip look below the video for 'options'

click on it and the drop down menu has a few choices...tick the 'long link' box and the link will change under the video....copy it

go back to your post in here and chose the [youtube][/youtube] tags and paste it in between...bobs your fanny
Cheers blue

Chaps,
I'm thick - I need help on this!

How would I get the link: <a class="postlink" href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FpZgInk8VMQ" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FpZgInk8VMQ</a>

Posted? I need a Super Dumbo Idiots Guide - Step by Step instruction. Please walk, me talk me thru it.

Do I need to run it thru the 'tinypic' site then add the youtube prefix and suffix?

Please help a blue in need!
Thanks.

Ok. I got it to work in the post above. First one I've posted. All you need to do is use 'post reply' in the normal way, then you will see all the stuff above where you write your post that lets you use bold, italics, underline, quote etc. The very last one is a little box with youtube in it. Click on it and you will get the opening and closing tags [youtube][/youtube] with the cursor flashing right between the two sets of brackets. Post your link in there. Easiest to right click on the cursor and select paste. Make sure there are no extra spaces at the beginning of the link. Should be good to go. Get the link off of the you tube page itself as per previous posts. Not somewhere I go a lot.
Just for clarification, no you don't need to use tinypic or anything else like that. Just highlight the link in youtube and copy it, then paste between the tags as explained.
