After you find the video you want to use from YouTube, get the embed code from the area on the right. There is only a few items you will actually need from this code, but it's easiest to just get the complete code to work with. You will need the width, height, and URL of the video. The embed code will be similar to the following, and the items you will need are bolded and shown in purple:

<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/KSMTRxIknpw&hl=en&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/KSMTRxIknpw&hl=en&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>

Next, click on the Flash BBCode (or just enter the BBCode). The opening BBCode tag should have the width and the height after the equal sign separated by a comma. Place the URL between the opening and closing BBCode tags. Here is the completed code from the example embed code:

Code: Select all

[flash=425,344]http://www.youtube.com/v/KSMTRxIknpw&hl=en&fs=1[/flash]
And the result is:
