Please excuse me if I am missing the obvious, but how do you embed youtube videos in your posts on this forum?

Thanks
Shane

Copy then paste the complete youtube link address onto it's own line in your post and the forum software creates the youtube window automatically. as in

Atlas Shrugged Trailer

above is just the full link - BUT MAKE SURE you go to the actual video, not some redirected link, that might be a problem.
