I tried to insert a YouTube video but I do not get it... I have looked at the help but I have not found how to do it. Someone could tell me how to do it? On the other hand I would like to also insert an "IFRAME" with a playlist of SoundCloud. Is this possible?

As to SoundCloud, I don't know, I'm afraid.

However, as to YouTube, I believe that you just paste the URL of the video--the full URL, not a shortened version--into a post, and the forum software should embed it for you. Like this:

Code:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=<SOME VIDEO ID HERE>

In Firefox (I don't know about other browsers; try it!) you should be able to get this URL by going to your channel, finding the relevant video, right-clicking on it, and selecting "Copy Link Location".

If you're watching the video, simply copy the URL in the address bar (removing any additional commands, like a time-offset). Note that, while you can get a video URL from a video that is playing by right clicking in the viewing area and selecting "Copy video URL", this seems to give a shortened URL, which may or may not work (I don't know, myself).

Yeah, sorry about embedding being kinda weird. It was done by someone else and we don't have the power to change how it works currently.
