Well this will be a basic and easy tutorial on how to use the youtube command in the forums which lets you post videos right in the forums.
So first off you'll need to copy the link from a youtube video which is located ontop near the "Back" button. After copying the link off there, you'll have to post it in the forums inbetween these two sections which are "[YouTube]" and "[/MEDIA]".
Now I've seen many people's links not working when using the "[youtube]" command. That's caused by the words I call "bugs" which are actually these: "&feature=[-random 4 letter combination or no letters-]", for example it's "" so you'll have to remove that in order for your video link to actually work, either way it will only pop up as text and the youtube sections/commands.

I hope this helped, if you need any further instructions, throw me a PM or just post it below and I'll answer if I can.
Thanks!

You forgot to state that http:// has to be in front of the www. in the URL, otherwise it won't work either.
