Posting a You tube Video

Is there a way to post a video link so that it displays in the post like a window.

I can post video's, but they show in the post like text.
Example: http://youtu.be/btVT5K4VyBE

Takes some manipulation of the URL. What I posted was -http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=btVT5K4VyBE- which I condensed from the address in the address bar rather than the link YouTube gives. Sometimes it takes a little trial and error and I don't see the results until I actually post the reply. Using Preview Post doesn't work for me. It can certainly be an area of frustration until you figure it out. Other forums make it a lot easier and others harder.

What has worked for me (and the way I've fixed a few that wouldn't embed for people) is to click on the link they provide. In your case that's http://youtu.be/btVT5K4VyBE.

When the YouTube site opens up I click on the username (larry3138) which brings me to the page where all the username's videos are.

I then find the video and click on it. The url that then shows up will embed in a post. It looks like this (bodged so you can see it) ht tp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=btVT5K4VyBE and will embed as below:

BBcode should support Youtube tags, example usage:

[youtube]YOUTUBEID[/youtube]


I can't get that to work here. Is there something needing enabled/installed?
