Copy and paste. Copy the url from the video on YouTube. Click on the filmstrip icon in the message box here. Paste the url in the box. Click OK.

The url is the web address of the page the video is on. Look in the address bar of your browser. It will be something like http://www.somethingoranother. The one for your video is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mVRB4G-FhfA

Can I follow on???

I have a photos question. Many of the photos I see embedded in threads are full size, glorious shots. All I can seem to do is attach a thumbnail. How can I embed photos in my thread (if I want to)?

Thank you!!

There's more than one way to do this. You need to have an on-line album of photos and link to the photo there.

For instance, I use (free) Picasa to edit and manage photos on my PC. Then I can upload photos to the Picasa Web Albums.

I browse to a photo I want to use. This one, for example.

Then I right click the photo there, and select "Copy Image Location" (I use Firefox. Internet Explorer probably has a similar thing) Some web albums have a "link to this photo" which does the same thing, just copy and paste the link they show.

Here's the link I copied: http ://lh6.googleusercontent.com/_wc7ef8CMbxA/Sz_BmsvQFWI/AAAAAAAAC7M/BH4UK4QPcEw/s800/IMG_6770.JPG

At my BF reply I click the Insert Image button and paste the photo link in the popup box. It's easy.

Here's that photo:
