              A wild liberal appears! Conservative uses logical reasoning and empirical evidence! It's super effective! Wild liberal faints.

                  Actually you can skip the & and everything after as well.

                    Update due to YouTube changes

                    When you look at a YouTube video you can see in the address bar something like this

                    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=desBQIP3kHg

                    for this use everything after the =

                    Below the video you will see in the Share section something like this

                    http://youtu.be/desBQIP3kHg

                    for this use everything after the last /

                    If the address appears like this

                    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K0aVquWCls0&feature=related/

                    use everything between (but not including) the = and the &

                    Paste the copied section and select it then click on the YouTube tag selector.

                    If you want to use the quick reply you can enter [youtube] before and [/youtube] after the copied and pasted section.

                    If you're successful your video will look something like this

                    The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. Thomas Jefferson.

                        How does this work now with the new upgrade? I've tried to post youtube but when I preview it comes up blank.

                          Click on the Link icon and enter the entire YouTube address now. In fact it may work with other video formats but I have not had time to test that yet.

                            Cosmos did a thread in Barracks as soon as the upgrade came into effect, he tried Youtube, Dailymotion and Metacafe... but Metacafe doesn't appear to work, for me anyway.
