Do not post a URL link to Youtube, on the CIH forums.  Encase the video code within tube tags instead.  The code is whatever follows the '=' in the youtube URL.
 
If you look at the bottom of any post you write, there's a link to "enable BBCodes."  The explanation of TUBE, as well as other tags, is in there.

It should look like

...........................................
Sometimes when you copy a link to a YouTube Video, you get some extra characters:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R7d1S6rBTKg&feature=user
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bdvL3FBwHEc&feature=related

You only need the part of the link IN BETWEEN watch?v= and &feature=xxxx.
So, in the examples I posted above, you only need R7d1S6rBTKg and bdvL3FBwHEc.
These are the YouTube Codes for the videos.
Put that code inside TUBE tags, and you're golden.
