I know how to do it, most sites like Youtube and Google have the embed source code available for copy and paste, but everytime I try to do it here, all that results when I submit my post is a bunch of source code and no video. Arrrrgh! Hell, I've even looked at the source codes on the pages of other embedded videos on the forum, in the Video Discussion Thread, double-checked everything, and mine still comes out wrong.

Wtf?

Maybe I should just give it up for the night and go to bed...zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

You have to select the drop down box to use "html code" on the upload/post page, it isn't set by default.

Thank you so much, Rick! I honestly never paid attention to the little drop-down box, but I know it's there now

Cheers,
Nem

I tried the advice you gave me Nemesis but there is no dropbox anywhere for me.

This is a screenshot of my layout in full reply mode:

Damn, you're right. Wonder why it's not showing up for you? Definitely a question for Xear. Sorry about that Diavolo!

Ohhhh, I didn't know that. I thought I just hadn't been describing where to find it correctly.
