Post subject:  Embedding youtube videos?

Hi,

I know I'm new but one thing that I've noticed on this forum is that any Youtube videos etc are linked to rather than embedded. I'd like to post some videos of my build on Youtube although I'd prefer if they were actually playable in a window within the posts as opposed to users having to switch to another page to see them.

I think if this was made possible it would encourage Covin owners to place more videos of their cars/projects on Youtube as there seem to be a distinct lack of them compared to other replicas and kit cars!!!

Maybe it is already possible and I just haven't come across any posts with embedded videos but if not I found this description

This tells you how to enable phpbb for forum editing.

I think it's just a case of changing the HTML coding on the admistrators screen whilst entering a generic text like [video][/video] which the forum will detect and will know that whatever is inbetween these two boxes is a youtube link?

Then all you have to do is put a guide similar to the one you have for photos and we're in business.

If I'm pissing up the wrong lamp-post let me know but it's just a wee suggestion!!!
