Hey guys (and girls),
a few days ago we upgraded the forum software to make embedding of flash videos from other sites easier. Many of us have encountered the problems with the dreaded youtube videos where you needed to only copy a part of the url, and place it in tags and the likes. Many newbies had problems with it, and even some veterans have.
Now all that you need to do is paste the youtube link here, and it will automagically become an embedded video.
If you do NOT want that to happen, you need to uncheck the "Automatically embed media (requires automatic parsing of links in text to be on)." or "Automatically parse links in text" tickbox.
Besides youtube we can now enable the posting of videos from almost any flashbased videosite that allows embedding here. A few of them are already implemented:

If you know of any others, or have any issues, tell me about it here and I will look into it.
