We need to get away from the Flash Tag for videos because it doesn't allow for very good mobile viewing. It also doesn't allow clicking on it to view it directly on Youtube and find more great videos.

I changed the Youtube tag to show the format the link should be in.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v={IDENTIFIER}

If you watch a video on Youtube this should be a direct copy of the URL from the website bar. Put that website in between the youtube square brackets and closing brackets or click on the youtube button and paste the URL between the brackets.

Of course then I find out that if the Youtube video is flagged as Syndicated by the original uploader that it won't play on mobile devices unless it is embedded.

All of my testing is done on a Nook Color which is slightly underpowered for video that is not optimized for mobile. This makes Youtube videos choppy to me when they are embedded.

Nevertheless, switch away from using the Flash embedded videos and use the youtube tag.
