When you go to YouTube, and click on a link to one of their videos, you get something that looks like this:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cgt4DEBQy50

The part you need for the BGG is everything AFTER the equals sign. Edit: Up to, but not including, any ending ampersand (&) and anything after the ampersand is also not needed/included for embedding on the BGG. That stuff is just for YouTube's tracking purposes and includes stuff like refer-er tags, etc.

So in this case the information you need is Cgt4DEBQy50.

Then what you do is put that number-letter mixture within the tag:

[ youtube=Cgt4DEBQy50 ]

Without the spaces between the brackets and the text, so you end up with this:

Another word of advice is to click the "quote" link under a reply that has the "feature" you're interested in. Seeing how BGG formats the shortcut to what you want can be most helpful.

thanks for the reminder. I couldn't listen at work (ran out of time) and I wanted to hear it at home, but I forgot about it.

that's a gorgeous song.
