      Both options will take you too the same interface showing the [yt] tags.

    2. Browse on Youtube to find the video clip you want to embed.
    3. There are a couple of ways to embed the youtube video clip. One is using the embed code (2), the other is by copying a section of the URL (Uniform Resource Locator) from your web browsers address bar (1). For this tutorial, you will see by the demonstration, the address bar method, as this is the easiest and quickest method out of the two.

    4. In any given youtube video clip that you watch, there is a certain portion, which is highlighted in the picture above, which is the specific ID of the clip, this is all that we need. Using your mouse, click and hold down the left mouse pointer at the start of the code and drag it to the right and stop as the last character is highlighted before the " = " character.

      The only portion of the address bar we need is the letters/numbers that is in between the " = " and the " & " characters.
