    Currently videos from the following sites are supported:
    -Game Trailers
    -YouTube
    -Google Videos


    [size=+1]Embed Game Trailers Video[/size]
    To embed a video from Game Trailers, add to your message: [noparse][trailer][/noparse]GameTrailerID[noparse][/trailer][/noparse]
    [trailer]14063[/trailer]
    The GameTrailer ID can be found in the URL of a video. For example, see this link:
    http://www.gametrailers.com/player.php?type=wmv&id=14063
    after id= is the GameTrailer ID, 14063
    Put this inside the [noparse][trailer][/noparse] tags like so:
    [noparse][trailer]14063[/trailer][/noparse]
    If you cannot find the link to a video, try choosing "Copy shortcut" when right-clicking a video on the GameTrailers site or seeing the URL to the link before you click it when moused-over.



    [size=+1]Embed YouTube Video[/size]
    In your message put: [noparse][/noparse]

    The YouTube Video ID can be found in the URL of a video. For example, see this link:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3w37X1N-U7o

    after v= is the YouTubeVideoID, 3w37X1N-U7o
    Put this inside the [noparse][/noparse]



    [size=+1]Embed Google Video[/size]
    In your message put: [noparse][gv][/noparse]GoogleVideoID[noparse][/gv][/noparse]
    [gv]2457516635251472391[/gv]
    The Google Video ID can be found in the URL of a video. For example, see this link:
    http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=2457516635251472391

    after docid= is the GoogleVideoID, 2457516635251472391
    Put this inside the [noparse][gv][/noparse] tags like so:
    [noparse][gv]2457516635251472391[/gv][/noparse]



    [size=+1]*NEW* Make Videos Resizeable[/size]
    I will eventually implement a better method for this, but for now, if you want to make a video resizeable try this: [noparse][gvz][/noparse]GoogleVideoID[noparse][/gvz][/noparse]
    [gvz]2457516635251472391[/gvz]
    (for Google Videos -- notice the "Resize Video" link is automatically added)

    -or-

    [noparse][ytz][/noparse]YouTubeID[noparse][/ytz][/noparse]
    [ytz]3w37X1N-U7p[/ytz]
    (for YouTube Videos -- notice the "Resize Video" link is automatically added)

    Oh and for those interested -- using quick reply does not pause/stop playback.
