    I wanted to embed a youtube video in my post, but I can't as HTML code is off. I was googling on how to embed a youtube video using BB code, but it seems as if it needs to be done on the admin's end. Here is a link on vBulletin's forum on how to add a YouTube BB code. Thanks in advance!

    No thanks. This has been discussed before; you can post a link to your Youtube video and people can choose to load it that way.

    Even if we had Youtube BB code, I'd probably load it right on a new tab. I don't like the ads on Youtube BB.

    I'm in favor for a BB youtube code. I rather clicking links or opening in a new tab/page
    I rather just have it ready to be loaded on site.

    If you quote a post with a video it will automatically change to a link.

    One of the many things I don't like about this new feature is that when I'm scrolling down a thread, the scrolling stops wherever there's an imbedded video. To avoid this, I have to make sure the pointer is on the side of the thread, not in the middle, where the video would appear.

    If you use it, that won't happen unless you've already clicked on the video to view it.

    I have ClickToFlash enabled and haven't clicked on any video. Yet, the scrolling stops when it hits the edge of the video.

    That doesn't happen for me. The scrolling continues as it should, even during the momentum phase of the scroll.

    That's the way it used to be for me. I don't know when it broke or what might have caused it.

    I notice that too, not a big deal, just don't scroll near the video.
