The observant amongst you may have noticed that there are two buttons to place videos in your posts, the old faithful YouTube button (which behaves much the same way as it did on the old forum system) and another button which looks like a strip of film which I have marked with a red arrow. An interesting feature of this button is that one can paste the full YouTube URL for your chosen video rather than having to faff about with the characters after v=. Utilising this button also enables the use of the full screen button without having to go to YouTube. Cool eh? ;)

Nice one, thank you!

Your welcome Nick :)

Another interesting feature of vb4 is that it recognises that you have pasted a URL and automatically encloses it with brackets thus relieving us of having to click the Link button. I like vb4 :D

I have these rare flashes of insight from time to time, my missus reckons I'm possessed during such incidents... :lol:
