    It's right after the "v=". For instance, the URL to a clip is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-AIdYoMpINQ. You put just the "-AIdYoMpINQ" in the embed field.

    Thanks. I discovered that I could just copy the entry in the "embed" window.

    For what it's worth, my "seamonkey" browser has several distinct options for JavaScript, basically involving what the scripts are allowed to do. I don't want scripts doing much to my browser window, so I only have "change images" checked. I didn't want to allow changing context menus or status bar text, or allowing scrpits to raise/lower windows or move/resize windows. What I have to do to see the embedded youtube videos is invoke "view page source" and search for the youtube link, then copy out the ID code for the video and do a generic youtube search. I -could- compose the regular "watch?v=<code>" link, but I generally don't do that. I also use a fairly ancient Linux system, as opposed to Micro$oft things, so the take-over-your-system bells and whistles don't take over my system. Stuff also doesn't generally spontaneously disappear, apart from the occasional disc crash. (I really need to set up mirrored discs.) This was intended to be more informative than ranting. Maybe links could include the code text in the clear for easier copying for those of my persuasion? I'll bet that's possible in the link parsing process, but it may be too much a pain even if only applied to youtube links.

    There's no point in us trying to customize the site for an audience of one, however cool or nifty the browser config is. If you have filtering rules or blocking rules- we suggest adding an exception if the page doesn't work. We aren't trying to spill wine on your carpet, shoot your dog, or put dings in your mandolin here.

    Here's the sneaky endaround method -

    In your message body, type:

    [ YOUTUBE="

    WITHOUT the space after the bracket. (If I type that without the space, everything between the brackets gets embedded, ie, vanishes from sight. Capisce?)

    Paste the embed html after that - no space - it will start with <object width= and end with <embed></object> and then type:

    "][/YOUTUBE]

    again with no space.

    Presto - changeo - abracadabra!

    To be sure you've done it right hit the preview button.

    That's really all the youtube icon does - surrounds the embed html with that code that makes it happen.

    You can save that bit of code as a text file so you don't have to type it every time - and risk making a typo.

    Again, close with "][/YOUTUBE] and open with [YOUTUBE="
    But that's just my opinion. I could be wrong. - Dennis Miller

    I hope this one works. It is quite a hoot. Little kids sings with feeling. I love it when he leans into the mic and doesn't even sing. He knows he's suppose to though.

    Thanks for the sneaky tutorial. I just tried to do this on another thread, and failed. Now, thanks to your instructions, here it is. A nice instructional clip from my friend Bert.
