    One of the many features about our current forum software we love is that it makes it really easy to embed videos in posts.

    For example, if you've been following the "What Are You Listening To?" thread you'll see an ample number of YouTube videos. When you are ready just copy & paste the YouTube URL into your post like this sample below.

    I have no idea why but it's a Neil Diamond Monday for me today.

    The result of the above post will end up automatically embedding the YouTube video in your post. Click here to see how it looks. Yep, it's that easy! :D

    On days where you don't see me posting much one of the reasons is likely that I'm working on tweaking something with the site. One of the things is always working on expanding the list of sites that support automatic embedding of videos. ;)

    This is the current list of what sites automatically support embedding videos or, when applicable, pictures or other content.

    If you have suggestions for new sites you would like to embed content from please let us know! Some sites do not permit their videos to be embedded elsewhere so while we may not be able to support all sites we will do our best to get all suggestions working.
