Q0. How to use the Youtube BBC?

Instead of the entire url: "[you tube=200,150]http://youtube.com/watch?v=blah[/you tube]"
Use it like:  "[you tube=200,150]blah[/you tube]"

How about the Veoh BBC?

Syntax: [veoh=width,height]videoID[/veoh]

example url: http://www.veoh.com/videos/v234980saPnHehF?searchId=3941112327373137933&rank=0

videoID would be the : v234980saPnHehF part only

Q1. What is BBCode?
BBCode is a special implementation of HTML. BBCode itself is similar in style to HTML: tags are enclosed in square braces [ and ] rather than < and > and it offers greater control over what and how something is displayed. For more information on BBCode see the guide which can be accessed from the help pages or google it.

Q2. Can I use HTML?
You are allowed to use it, but only certain tags work. This is a safety feature to prevent people from abusing the board by using tags that may corrupt the layout or cause other problems. If HTML is enabled you can disable it on a per post basis from the posting form.

Q3. What are Smileys?
Smileys, or Emoticons, are small graphical images used to express some feeling using a short code, e.g. Smiley means happy, Sad means sad. The full list of emoticons can be seen via the posting form. Try not to overuse smileys, though, as they can quickly render a post unreadable and a moderator may decide to edit them out or remove the post altogether.

Q4. Can I post Images?
Yes, you can upload your own images or link it from other sites. You cannot link to pictures stored on your own PC (unless it is a publicly accessible server) nor to images stored behind authenticated mechanisms such as Hotmail or Yahoo mailboxes, password-protected sites, etc. To display the image use either the BBCode [img] tag or appropriate HTML.

Q5. What are Announcements?
Announcements often contain important information and you should read them as soon as possible. Announcements appear at the top of every page in the forum to which they are posted. Whether or not you can post an announcement depends on the permissions required set by the administrator.

Q6. What are Sticky topics?
Sticky topics appear below any announcements in view forum and only on the first page. They are very important so you should read them when possible. As with announcements the board administrator determines what permissions are required to post sticky topics in each forum.

Q7. What are Locked topics?
Locked topics are set this way by either the forum moderator or board administrator. You cannot reply to locked topics and any poll contained inside ends. Topics may be locked for many reasons.
