How do I embed a YouTube video into my article, comment or post?

This is easy using Backcountry BC's Videobox Plugin.  The following is a typical Youtube URL (Monster in the Woods):  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v336YH-atBU

Use the following tags with the YouTube Video ID as follows (Asterix added at the start to so as to not trigger the module):  

{*videobox}v336YH-atBU{/videobox}

To add a description below your video add the following after the video idea: |Description  

Example:

{*videobox}v336YH-atBU|Description of The Video Goes Here{/videobox}

This results in the following in your article:
