Is it possible to add a youtube player to my main forums page, so that I can rotate thru new game videos?  I played with the "embed" code on a youtube video but couldnt' get it to post up (tried the flash, hpyerlink, etc with no luck).  I'm hoping to get an actual player up that guildies  can click, not just a link.  YES, I might me slightly retarded about this, but could someone help me inthe spirit of the holidays?  Thanks ---  Kat

So you want your users to be able to watch a 150px wide version of a video that was originally taken from a 1024px wide source?

I like the blinky lights and all, but at that point, text is going to be about 1px tall, and that uber mob boss you just downed will look like little more than a colorful blur.

I think you'll probably be better off going with a thumbnail image from the video that links to the YouTube page so they can view the video at a more appropriate size.

You can embed a vid into any HTML content conainer or forum post. Just remember to be in HTML mode (<>) before pasting the code.

Let's just saaay - purely for the sake of argument - that I don't know how to "be in HTML mode".  When I have a text editor box open (like for exaple I'm typing in right now) what little icon thingie do I click? Or, whatever?

If you go to youtube to the right of any given video is the line of html text to embed the video - copy this text and then AFTER selecting HTML (bottom left of your text box) paste the embed code ("<object width="425" ... etc").

Worked for me.
