Trying to add a video from youtube to a game forum, but whatever I do it only says "invalid video".
What should I do?

i) press the utube button.
ii) Navigate to the video you want on youtube.
iii) Copy paste the string after the v= and stop before the &

so
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H11U3ul-wJ8&feature=g-pop&con...

the important bit is:H11U3ul-wJ8

there really should be a bit of text in the utube code entry bit to tell you. It's not rocket science but it is unintuitive.

To the same end BGG uses a similar system use the insert geek link - select the type of item you want and enter its code from your address bar.

http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/767377/dealing-with-a-sore-l...

So its a thread and its code is 767377

Thus

insert geek link pick thread and enter 767377
=

Dealing With A Sore Looser

Pretty much everything on BGG links use this system.
