Is there any code that can be used on PlayingCardForum posts to embed a youtube video?

Many other forums have this feature, even the Magic Cafe.  To see what I mean, see for example this post here:

For the time being, while it is technically possible to have them, we've held off on video embeds.  I think it might be a bandwidth issue; I'm not certain.  I'll revisit the issue with Lee Asher when I see him at the convention in October.

Thanks Don.

It can't be for bandwidth reasons.  When you embed a YouTube video, it streams directly from YouTube's servers - so PlayingCardForum's server isn't used for the data at all.

I recall there was some kind of reason, but that reason might no longer apply - which is why I'll bring it up to Lee.
