It would be worth adding a Youtube Flash Video Embedder option when we are about to post. Could you add it?

Yes, I do.
It is possible, but there are security issues, or were when I read up on it a while back. Let's see what Red5 says.
There still are But there are plugins available that make it possible.
The wider questions surrounding this are:
1) Can we ensure that all videos are fully moderated. If inappropriate content were displayed, even for a few people, it would damage the reputation of the site massively.
2) It's not a native vBulletin feature. Therefore, if we upgrade the forum software there is no guarantee that the plugin author will upgrade their plugin to maintain compatibility. In other words I can offer this feature now but it might disappear in the future, or we may need to switch to an alternative that might break previously posted content.
Methinks we need to think...
I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.
Sounds pretty risky to me, for a tiny possible increase in ease of use - seems to me that there's not that much to think about - after all, there are teachers who use parts of this site for class teaching.
Hmm- I can see the fun aspect, but I clean out about a dozen spam posts most days, but if we started getting porn spam too... We could try it, I suppose, but stop if any inappropriate content gets posted. Dunno
I do not want it to be more trouble than it is worth. So it is all up to you - no offence if it does not go through. Anyway, I am looking forward to getting your last word on it.
Thank you for your interest and for the job you do at UE everyday, dear folks.
