    Your youtube video ID can be emailed to you from youtube, or you can find it to the right of your youtube video in the information box (listed as URL). It will look something like this:

    where the numbers and letters after the ?v= is your video ID.

    Your video will display in the thread like this...

      Very nice Greg. Thanks. That will save folks time going through Trial and Error getting it right. There is a new version of our Forum software that we have not installed yet -- maybe it makes "embed YouTube" a clickable option. I will check.
