Why no [youtube] embed fx???

This works on many other forums and adds a lot of visual appeal to a thread over just links.

Why can't we have it here??
---------------------------------------------
edited 3/19 Now we have embeded Video!

replace the ( ) with [ ] and paste the "embed video" code snipit in between...looking like this:

(embed)past code snipit here(/embed)

will get you embeded video as you see in posts below...

I think it really improves the content of threads...far better than having links as you have to read each post to find a vid link, whereas this shows us plainly.

It's actually really simple, need to make a custom tag with the following code:

HTML Code:
<object width="425" height="350"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/{param}"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/{param}" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="425" height="350"></embed></object>

I'm downloading the Fireball XL5 series at the moment. I watched it as a kid.

Yeah, I always loved the youtube embed. Makes for watching videos easier, until they cancel embed, then it's just a hassle again

What about using HTML tags? I'd love to be able to embed my flickr photos so you can click to get other sizes, but the code provided to me doesn't render on the forum.

HTML tags can easily be exploited if you know what you're doing.
