I haven't really looked around for any talk of it- and I don't think I've ever written in this specific forums- but is there any future progress towards making YouTube pages embeddable into the forums/forum posts via bbcode?
I know many blogs and forums use something along the lines of "[youtube]blah blah blah url[/youtube]" and so I was wondering if/when you guys were gonna make the jump to allowing embedding as well.
With 1080 widescreen embedding possible now, and it being a pretty universal outlet, it'd be a nice feature to be able to have while posting. Just a thought.

I too would be interested in finding out more about whether you guys plan on making it available and when...

Somehow I completely missed this back when you guys originally posted, sorry about that!
The forum software we use actually pre-dates YouTube and due to all the customisations is a little tricky to update to the latest version. As you may have spotted I can embed YouTube movies by enabling HTML on my posts, but we can't do that for everybody due to security issues.
It would certainly be nice to have YouTube and Vimeo embedding but I'm not sure it'll be possible in the immediate future. I'll check with malone to make sure.

Hey, thought I'd check in to see if any progress had been made or news had come out of Malone as to whether embedding would be possible in the near future.

Hey Atom, unfortunately it's not doable at this time due to the legacy issues with the version of the forum we're using. Annoying, and certainly something we'll be looking to imrpove later in the year.
