    You can embed YouTube videos into posts, as detailed at http://netrider.net.au/forums/misc.php?do=bbcode#youtube



    Alternatively, when posting, a small YouTube logo appears at the top of the edit area you type into so you can also click on that logo to make it even easier to put the YouTube tags around your video id.

    The video id appears directly after the /watch?v= (and before a & if one exists) on a YouTube URL.

    So, if you have a YouTube URL of http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rnc5JOW0M_4 then rnc5JOW0M_4 is the video id. Here's a couple examples ....

    Code:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rnc5JOW0M_4&feature=player_embedded
    .... rnc5JOW0M_4 is the video id
    
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6beJpPMmr8&feature=related
    .... s6beJpPMmr8 is the video id
    
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LPIA__hhYaQ&feature=related
    .... LPIA__hhYaQ is the video id
