i've had a couple folks ask me how to post a video and have it show up as a clickable picture, and not as a link, like this: http://www.youtube.com/v/q5SuBCG_qoQ

for that specific video, it is called "q5SuBCG_qoQ" at Youtube.
i know that because that link is
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q5SuBCG_qoQ

make sense?

so if you click the blue square "enter a media tag" box above the full reply type-box and select YouTube Video, you would just enter in q5SuBCG_qoQ

which would give you code that looked like this (but it would include the beginning and ending brackets, which i left out so you could see the code) :

video:youtube]q5SuBCG_qoQ[/video

which makes for embedded video:
http://www.youtube.com/v/q5SuBCG_qoQ

i hope that makes sense
