    The part you need is the red bold part. I don;t use the embed link, but the url link. with the url link on the you tube page, the characters you need are easier to find, they are after the v=
    ie

    The you wrap it in youtube tags. So that you can see what to type, I am putting spaces in it. To make it work you have to run it together.

    oh, and it can;t be red and bold either, lol. I could have skipped the whole space thing.

    The command syntax:

    {youtube}3jV3JdtaOGc{/youtube}

    where the squiggly brackets should be converted to square brackets and the youtube video id should be placed between the two commands.

    Please note that, for some reason, FireFox 3 is not showing youtube videos on my mac. I don't know if this is true of anybody else. Safari shows it.

    wise.

    Firefox 3 is trouble-free when watching videos on my Intel iMac.

    Wise, sometimes you need to delete your Flash Cache. Flash apparently saves your information. Go to the Flash Player Settings Manager and "Delete all sites" from the Privacy Settings. In the Website Storage Settings, you can clear the cookies and other information.

    That might explain a problem I sometimes have after I watch quite a few videos in a session. All of a sudden they stop working until I reboot.

    I'll have to try it.
