I fixed it! For future reference, you don't need the embed code. Just the URL, so for this video it would look like this:
Code:
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ysyZF-DZFY[/youtube]

If you don't strip out all the referral and embed nonsense Youtube likes to append to their URLs, the (relatively stupid) text parser can't figure out where the video is.

Me too! The funny part is that girl seems so young and she's already getting old. What a world.

crepe, i am the one who has to get a babysitter to go out only to look at showtimes to find out none of the movies sound good and refuse to see my favorite bands who reunite because they are charging too much (where is fugazi with their $5 shows when you need them?) *sigh* they know me too well.... oh, they forgot to add my constant complaining that music today just isn't as good as it was in the late 90's-early 2000's. i'm old and irrelevant!
