Example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B6jOsrLcqNU

[ youtube ]B6jOsrLcqNU[ / youtube ]

Add the red part (on any YouTube video) between ["youtube"], and remove the spaces.

And then you'll get this:
B6jOsrLcqNU

She said PHPBB. ;)

Most PHPBB forums that I go to don't do Youtube embeds, but one I go to has it like this:
[ youtube ]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IbrjM4aAWHY[ / youtube ]

Just do it without the spaces for it to embed. :)

Ummm, yes it does... (kick me if I'm wrong, but isn't this a PHPBB based board? I know another board I am a member of is, and that is how we embed youtube stuff...)

EDIT: Ok, confused now. What is the difference between PHPBB and VB? *brain begins to melt...*

*Has never been able to get head around this stuff*

Heh, as long as the the square bracket works, I'm happy! (Unlike on DA, where it's all html... aaarrgghh! What sadist invented html??)

Well I'm not sure then, I'm afraid. I think they can choose how they code it. :o
