How to Embed YouTube Video

It's a 4 step process. Follow each step with the pictures below (big red numbers corresponding to each step).

First, find the video you want on YouTube and find the gobbledegook value to the right of equal sign. Copy that value.

Second, when posting, push the "Go Advanced" button so you can get to the correct screen with more options to compose/embed your video in your post.

Third, push the "Wrap YouTube" button at the end of the advanced toolbar (on my screen it, confusingly, looks like a question mark in a box for some reason) and it will drop bracketed YouTube tags into your post/composition window.

Forth, paste the gobbledegook value you copied in Step 1 in-between the bracketed YouTube tags.

Then, voila, when you post your message, everyone will enjoy the embedded video. Hope that helps.

That's really useful and quite interesting (not that I've ever posted a video).
You must be getting fed up of doing it for everyone else!

I don't mind, but people ask how to do it often enough, it's worth just writing it out once and then pasting the link to the description. Hopefully it comes up with a quick search too.
