    the youtube tag method has been deprecated (by vBulletin)) in favour of


    [video=video-source;video-link]full-url-to-video[/video]


    video-source is the provider site , i.e. youtube, vimeo, etc
    video-link is everything after the watch?v= in a youtube link and similar for other sources
    full-url-to-video is the full link to the video as appears in the address bar e.g. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=adsiengfh (that is a nonsense link)

    so a full example (based on the url used above) would be


    [video=youtube;adsiengfh]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=adsiengfh[/video]

    sometimes it wont embed proper if it has extra extensions on the www. com.. like the =RelatePlay tags and shit , you can delete the extensions and it SHOULD work.. hope it helps
