People have been griping about the lack of embedded video for a while now without any understanding of how time-consuming/tedious it is for me to safely implement something like that in a way that doesn't force it upon people who don't want it.  



I am not a programmer (at all!).   However it is not time-consuming and it doesn't "force" anything on anybody.  Just like having the ability to Bold or Underline doesn't force anyone to use it.  Same thing.

For example, here is the code to allow YouTube clips in vBulletins forums:



<object width="425" height="355">
<param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/{param}"></param>
<param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param>
<embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/{param}"
   type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent"
   width="425" height="355"></embed>
</object>


Then, all one has to to do is paste in the unique number for the clip between [YouTube] and [/YouTube].
