How to: Embed Youtube videos in a post

I decided to do a quick little write up for members on how to embed a Youtube video directly in a post.

1.) Find the URL for the YouTube video you wish to embed. The link will be in the address bar of your web browser. Example:
Quote:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tvxS1iKnNjk&feature=c4-overview&list=UU9kcrKFpa_wHVgIIdJ-iB6w
2.) Find the ID of that video. The ID of the video is the text directly after the "watch?v=" in the URL and up to the point of the first "&" symbol. The ID for the video above would be tvxS1iKnNjk.

3.) Wrap the Youtube video ID in youtube BB code tags like below:
Code:
[youtube]tvxS1iKnNjk[/youtube]
4.) This results in the below:
