Copy the URL for the video you'd like to embed. It ought to look something like this:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_cZC67wXUTs

You'll need to delete anything that appears in addition to the base URL, such as &feature. Paste and select the URL, then hit the YouTube button. The link should look like this (minus the spaces):

[ youtube ]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_cZC67wXUTs[ /youtube ]



Enjoy!

No problem! It's a pretty awesome feature. :D

Note: The way I have the YouTube button set up currently, it only works for http://www.youtube.com videos, not videos from an international YouTube site. I can likely make a change to allow international YouTube videos to work, too, but YouTube keeps redirecting me back to the base URL whenever I try to look at a video from an international site.

If someone can provide a link to an nice, politically-correct international video, I can make the change!

Hi Beth,

I'm not really sure what information you want. If I'm opening www.youtube.nl it will redirect to www.youtube.com as well. If you can be more specific I might be able to help you out.

Xan
