We've made it easy to embed YouTube clips in to your blog. All you need is a link to the clip; you can then embed the player in your post. Here's an example:

Find the ID of the YouTube video. It's in the URL:


Paste the ID in a 'youtube' tag:

[ youtube]fDJ4GTgC34Q[/youtube]

I've put a space in the first tag so that it won't embed the player this time; you need to type the tag with no spaces for it to work!

New! For widescreen videos use the 'youtube-ws' tag instead of just 'youtube': [ youtube-ws]fDJ4GTgC34Q[/youtube-ws]

(Don't forget to take the space out of the first tag).

    How about a blog about basic html code?

    How to bold or enlarge text.

    How to create linked text.

    How to embed pictured or scrolling galleries?

    Somehow the trick didn't seem to work with the cover sleeve image of the audio files I just posted.

    Sam, all of that needs to be done in BB code, which is also used in forum posts (more on that here.

    Only you can write HTML because otherwise you wouldn't have been able to embed YouTube videos before I made the custom youtube BB code tag.
