Ok, I know it can be done. I have seen it done by others here, where the video itself shows up instead of just posting a link to it, but every time I try using the embed codes from youtube, I just get the text codes showing up in the final post instead of an actual embedded video. I figure the code needs to be modified, or I am doing something wrong. I can't seem to find anything in the FAQ (not sure if I just don't know what search phrase to use or what). Can anyone fill me in on what I am doing wrong?

You just need to add this to your post

XXXXXX

The XXXXX = the file number from the youtube video.

Here's the full link to my warp drive thing.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GiAV7Z3Qcr0

The XXXX = GiAV7Z3Qcr0

So, the code would be =GiAV7Z3Qcr0

I misspelled you tube so that it wouldn't embed the video. This way you can see what I'm doing.

At least that's how I do it.
I hope it helps ya out.
:D
