BTW, this works with most other video sharing sites as well.

Let me know if you guys find any issue with this update.

I've tried cutting and pasting the you tube link on other posts but it doesn't  show as a large thumbnail like the examples.  It just remains a text hyperlink.  What am I doing wrong?

Note that youtube has a lot of "forms" of links.  To be sure that it gets posted here, when you are viewing a youtube video, click on the "share" tab.  You should get a URL that looks like

Code: [Select]
http://youtu.be/<some_code>
Use that when posting and it will display.

The latest video embedder that I updated to last week was broken.  I had to roll back one release, and it appears to be working again.  Let me know if you encounter any issues.

Why click the share button?just copy the address bar when you have the video open that you wanna post.  Then paste after your text entry. This shows the video in your post instead of a link.

There are some forms of the "address bar" version that don't get transformed.  I know for sure that form that I posted works here.
