Is it fairly easy to embed video from youtube in your posts on this site?

Yes, underneath the video there should be share and embed options to click on. You should be able to just cut and paste the code from there.

Just take the YouTube url without any of the embed statements, and set the size to 425x350 (or whatever the youtube embed statement says).  Like this...
Code: [Select]

fixed

Instead of this
Code: [Select]
[flash=640,390]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QZXc39hT8t4[/flash]
it should be this
Code: [Select]
[flash=640,390]http://www.youtube.com/v/QZXc39hT8t4[/flash]
Just have to modify the url a little bit around the 'v' character

Hey mods - seems youtube has moved on from the old embed code... perhaps we could update our ability too?

Looks like it still works, you just have to manually change the URL from...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hEJnMQG9ev8
   to....

Youtube made a change. Other forums are having the same issue:

Yeah, they "officially" stopped supporting flash a couple years ago, it just appears they actually stopped supporting  it now.  I'll have to see if I can enable iframe stuff which is kinda dangerous in case any of you fools decide to get malicious.

You can limit the risk by making youtube specific tags to embed videos in an iframe. The post by GandalfleGris says how they did it: https://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopic.php?f=438&p=14499491#p14499566

In other news, it appears they brought back their flash support.  Cool.
