Allright, I've seen many people suffering from a such a common problem around the forums. Adding a Youtube video is hard for some people, when it's actually just quite simple.

Let's take an example; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gsdrKKMF ... ure=g-vrec
Now we have got a Youtube video we want to be visible on our post.

Step 1. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gsdrKKMF ... ure=g-vrec Cut everything from the URL link from the "&" to all the way to the end. In this case: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gsdrKKMF174&feature=g-vrec The darkened red area shall be removed, so only the www.youtube.com/watch?=gsdrKKMF174 is left, it works in every case. All the link has to have left is /watch?= and random amount of random letters and numbers, nothing else.

Step 2. Now we've got a shortened Youtube link and we need to use the PhPbb codes in order it to be visible in the forum post.
Click from above, or type "[YouTube][/MEDIA]" and copy-paste your shortened Youtube link URL between the "[YouTube]" and "[/MEDIA]"

Example: "[youtube] http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gsdrKKMF174 [/MEDIA]" (without the spaces infront and before the "[" and "]")

Result:
