Hey Lee,

I can no longer embed media from YouTube by pasting in the embed html for the flash video. I noticed you have managed to post videos using the object and embed tags though. Insert flash movie doesn't seem to work either, as it is required that the url end with a swf extension. So what's the trick for posting YouTube vids?

First, start with the ADD REPLY button, not FAST REPLY.

On the left sidebar click Insert: Flash Movie and follow the prompts. You need to modify the url as indicated by the instructions on the form. Videos thus embedded will be visible in all browsers, except of course that piece of crap, Internet Explorer.

I got it, ty. I didn't notice " replace '/watch?v=' with '/v/'" before.
I used to be able to just edit the html.
