    Default Attention: Embedding Youtube videos has changed

    From now on when you embed a video, all you need to do is wrap the URL in [VIDEO] tags. Example:

    [VIDEO]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1234567[/VIDEO]

    Alternatively, you can just hit the "Insert Video" button, and it will prompt you to enter the URL:


    I realize the huge inconvenience this has created in regard to past videos posted. If you have posts in which you had embedded videos and are no longer displaying properly, please send me a PM with the subject line "Video" and link me directly to the post(s).

    them they've all got unimaginable, magnificent, wonderful, stupid, amazing worlds. Not just one world. Hundreds of them. Thousands maybe.” -Neil Gaiman

    If you get a lot of these complaints, there's a mySQL query that you could run to change embedded videos to the new format.

    I love the new way that videos embed

    I don't know how the data is stored, but it does seem like some sort of regular expression based search and replace operation could be done.
