EDIT:
i just saw you said in High quality.
I don't think YouTube allows the embedding of HQ just yet.

But i'll keep the rest just as reference for posting YouTube videos in general.

____________
i know how :D

Lets say you wanted to embed this video.

Copy the embed code from that site. Come back here, and click the Macromedia Flash button (looks like this:)
you get this:
Code: [Select]
[flash=200,200][/flash]
look at your embed code you copied:
Code: [Select]
<object width="***425***" height="***344***">
<param name="movie" value="***http://www.youtube.com/v/1kDL4ZANqU0&hl=en&fs=1***">
</param>
<param name="allowFullScreen" value="true">
</param>
<param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always">
</param>
<embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/1kDL4ZANqU0&hl=en&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344">
</embed>
</object>

and then copy the appropriate information (each spot that i placed stars!) so it looks like this:
Code: [Select]
[flash=425,344]http://www.youtube.com/v/1kDL4ZANqU0&hl=en&fs=1[/flash]
The final product should be something like this:
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/1kDL4ZANqU0&amp;hl=en&amp;fs=1" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/1kDL4ZANqU0&amp;hl=en&amp;fs=1</a>

Success?

I googled a link to a site that tells you how to do high quality shitz.
it says somewhere, if the quality is there, then you can even get them in 720p!

There is a slightly easier way to embed, even though Edgar's method is fluffywonderful.


Copy the URL link.

Change these things,

to,

Edit size as Edgar showed, and voila,

in order to embed in high quality, you need to add the following string of code onto the youtube embed URL: (usually slap it on right after the "1.")

&ap=%2526fmt%3D18

This'll make things appear at their finest.  Like so. 

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/-9e2zrs8iUU&amp;hl=en&amp;fs=1&amp;ap=%2526fmt%3D18" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/-9e2zrs8iUU&amp;hl=en&amp;fs=1&amp;ap=%2526fmt%3D18</a>

without that &ap line, the video would appear in its default quality, like-a this-a:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/-9e2zrs8iUU&amp;hl=en&amp;fs=1" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/-9e2zrs8iUU&amp;hl=en&amp;fs=1</a>

See all that pixel-y dotty crap on this one?  Yeah, you don't want that shit, you want the High Quality malarky bled straight from the source.  I remember the code mostly because I've used it about 80 million times, but the real trick to getting started on it is the first three characters: "&ap"  I refuse to believe that a board devoted to Amanda Palmer, who writes a song called "&" wouldn't be able to get some kind of grasp on this eventually.   

The rest of how I remember it isn't as coincidental or as cool.  I think to myself 25 or 26 percent full metal tinsel, need to be 18 to get into the 3d movie.  yeah, okay... nonsensical... but until you come up with a little poem for yourselves, you can just come back here and look... lol.

Yes, yes, exactly!  One bug I seem to have noticed, if you attempt to switch the high quality video over to high quality (as some people on the board may be in the habit of doing) the whole video hiccups and doesn't work. 

as for memorizing the line of code, I really think singing it along to the instrumental of Ampersand is helpful.  it almost exactly fits the opening piano part perfectly.  ironic.
