Embedded YouTube video???

When I paste this code on the forum it doesn't work...

HTML is on but what tags should I have to show the video as opposed to the code??

Have you tried embedding it with the bbcode tags?

I'm not sure what you mean??

What is the code for that??

If it's this one

[youtube]{TEXT}[/youtube]

If I copy and paste the URL or EMBEDE code it still doesn't work.

You can't embed YouTube clips into forums posts without a hack for the bbcode used by the forums. EHP Designs made one, that also supports lots of other embedded video formats, but their site seems to be down at the moment:-

Yes you can embed YouTube videos if you change the YouTube URL as follows:

From this:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zZA7YXvXjYM

Change to this:http://www.youtube.com/watch/v/zZA7YXvXjYM.swf

Notice that you simply change the "?" and the "=" symbols to "/", and then add the extension ".swf" to the end of the file name.
