    would it be possible to add youtube tags so that the video appers on TSG without a link it would solve the swaring in the video reviews cause they won't be visible so all the TSG member has to do is click play. something like [youtube] [/youtube] could it be done.:)

    My question would be why would we waste TSGs resources on video, unless there are "How to fix ___________" videos all over that site.

    It would take up too much space...Unless you have a few extra servers handy.

    It doesn't take any more space than a link to the video.

    Example: CLICK ME

    It uses no site resources, (except for youtube's) and it's not that large either.

    That image is on image shack not tsg even though you are seeing it on tsg.

    So imageshack's bandwidth s being used, not tsg's.

    The video is on YouTube, it would be like showing an image from another site here.

    I think it's just best to link to it. Pages would look cluttered and the video wouldn't look nice with TSG's theme (blue-ish).

    I think it would look okay.

    I came across a forum that does what you're asking, Lex, and it is nice to view the video without going to Youtube itself :)

    warning - it's a Christian forum - which may also be why they have this feature. :)
