Well do you mean in a forum or in a games record? As a general rule all videos posted in a game's forum that relate to the game should be posted in videos and not in forum form.

For a forum:

Youtube:
1. Go to the video you want and look at the url. You only want the sting after the v= but before any & (if there is one)
2. Press the youtube button and enter the code.

Example:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dFex4FGzKjA

Code = dFex4FGzKjA



Vimeo:
1. Go to the video you want and look at the url. You want the number string only.
2. Press the Vimeo button and enter the code.

Example:
http://vimeo.com/40503001

Code= 40503001



To add a video to a game's record:

1. Navigate to the record.
2. Scroll down to video and select add.
3. Insert the relevant code using the same process as show above.
4. Wait for it to get geekmodded.

Looking at these stars suddenly dwarfed my own troubles and all the gravities of terrestrial life. I thought of their unfathomable distance, and the slow inevitable drift of their movements out of the unknown past into the unknown future. H.G. Wells

Indeed, seems not to be functioning.
