just for clarification, ALL you need is the code above. sometimes links will be followed with an ampersand(&) and more code, but you do not need it.
the bolded is necessary, the code after(in red) is not.

anybody know how to make it start at a certain timecode? cause sometimes vidyas are long and i just want it to go to the place that makes my point

I've seen people link to timecodes in the comments section on youtube, but never tried it myself. However I doubt that would translate into being able to embed a video to start at a specified time in the video. Good question though, now i am curious.

Also: FYI - embedding youtube videos on a forum or website disables the ads. whereas, if you click on a youtube link from a forum or website, or are watching videos at youtube.com, you will see ads.

One other note - the bit of text embedded between the youtube tags is subject to the forum word filter! If part of that text string makes a 'bad word', that part will get replaced by *!
Had a frustrating 5 minutes one day with that problem.
