I saw a button for "flash." I tried using it to insert a Youtube vid, and it wasn't working. Has this feature been disabled, or am I doing something wrong?

It inserts the code OK:




The URL should be placed between the second and third square brackets.

Does youtube use the flash format?

Most of the guys running videos are just posting the link to their video on youtube or any of the other hosting sites.

Yes. The flash code should display the file automatically when you load a page. I really don't know how the code would work on the YABB forums except for banner ads, etc.

Here's a test. If it doesn't work, it doesn't work. On a ski and snowboard website that I used to work for, I inserted Youtube vids via the flash code.

I've been working on this to. I can get the video displayed on other sites. Here is the code for the other ones (that displayed my video) but it don't work here. If anyone figures it out it would be cool. 8-)
