How do I embed videos on this forum?

I believe the answer is, "You don't." But I'm not a moderator or admin here, so don't take that as final.

But we're pretty smart, for the most part. We can click on links.

As far as I know, you can't.

My suggestion would be to host them on Youtube or a similar site.

You can easily link to videos, just like linking to any other URLs.

I think Embedding audio/video would disrupt the flow of discussion. Add to that the fact that most embedded "video" is really embedded flash, and flash has a long history of security problems...

Some of my favorite forums on the internet don't even allow embedded images.

I think it's technically possible to create a BBcode tag to embed youtube videos, though.

Thanks for the reply, I'll just stick to links then.
