Is there a possibility for embedding youtube videos?
I tried to use the [ media ] tag, as in a very similar forum (must be a version of the same forum engine...), but it didn't work.

So how to embed videos?

Thanks!

Size is fixed. I suppose we could modify the tag to include a height and/or width parameter but - why? It's large enough to see well when played embedded and I fixed the issue of not being able to full screen it early last year. Do you think it's too big as embedded by default (I made the embed size larger when I fixed the full screen control)?

You can also simply just paste the video watch URL straight into the editor window and upon posting it will embed it in a media tag for you

I don't think it's too big usually, but I wanted to have smaller sizes in one of my posts.

I have other questions of these tags so is there a general information about them somewhere? Or what is this kind of tagging called? I couldn't google it, because I don't know the terms.

One particular question is that is it possible to change the "spoiler" title above spoiler widgets? I want to make a kind of in-journal portfolio, and I want to hide some text inside the spoiler widgets, but the title "spoiler" looks a bit weird.

Alright I added a new tag that will let you title the hidden area, it's called Rollup:

[rollup="Hidden Stuff"]You see me now[/rollup]

You can access it in the Special BBCode button next to the eraser up top to see the format style and such.

I've also looked and saw there is an optional dimensions setting for media tags, but doesn't seem to do anything...
