Copy and paste the everything after the equals symbol on your youtube video.
and insert between brackets exactly as Nev has typed the
Code:
 [youtube]   your link, with no spaces between these brackets [/youtube]
.

Sometimes it does not work for me though.
Can this be explained, and is there another way of doing it, if it fails?

Thanks
Tom

Don't know what you did there Tom as there is no embed YT URL.

If you are successful there'll be a YT link below the video window like this:

[youtube]M2-wXVRKLQc[/youtube]


I used this to embed the video:



Sometimes if you copy a YT link from elsewhere than YT itself the embed will not work.

Ha, I was trying to just type it in the way you would write it, and had no intention to actually post a link. :lol:

These are the last links which would not work for me...

[youtube]9pAVgfSPMN0&t=52s[/youtube]

[youtube]XIIrAwndUCE&t=801s[/youtube]

I'm just writing the youtube symbol inbetween those brackets, with the forward slash before the latter youtube.
Is there a fancy way to make a video work?

Your links have a start time set.
This is the bit reading eg &t=52s to start at 52 seconds in. Delete this and the video will embed ok.
