is there a way to embed youtube vids rather than just showing a clickable link...
reason im asking is a user asked for a vid to a certain game an i would have liked to have shown it off properly by embedding the video in my answer...
i have tried the iframe code and the [youtube]filespec but neither worked and the direct link just shows up as a url...

so is there a specific link code i can use like bbcode or similar?

I hope there isn't or some people would be posting all kinds of inappropriate material and the Mods wouldn't be able to keep up. At least there's a choice as to whether or not to click on a link.

then some people would get perma banned... its easy to report a link/vid and its no different. in fact theres more chance of inappropriate links when they are blind...

There is BBCode for this but I don't think anybody knows how to use it, and/or it doesn't work.

I think the Admin's might not have it enabled.

I stand corrected. Looks like it's enabled and workable.

Only outstanding question might be - is it permitted?

@ Hexit;
I can't tell what you're doing wrong ATM. But if you look at the BBCode you can compare yours with mine. There is that BBCode button next the the Report button.

@ Saga Lout; Thanks

Hexit's BBCode compared to mine:
