Embedded youtube video format

I tried to embed a youtube video recently but it did not work.

I used the format I used previously.

bracket youtube]....video # only....[/youtube]

I didn't even do that last time. I just threw in the Youtube URL hoping it would make a link and not embed. It embedded itself.

I ended up doing that and it just shows a Youtube header bar but not the video preview picture.

Hey guys,

All you have to do it post the URL. You don't need to add any bb codes. @rv6john What browser/device are you using?

Roger, just paste the URL.

And yes it is my browser causing the issue. Chrome running on an old XP machine.

I booted up Firefox and your video showed fine.

Thanks.
