Man, this is something:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eTDMr1ZY-98

Now I see why I NEVER let someone at the valet for any of the casinos we visit park either of our cars!

(By the way, can someone provide me with the correct "tabs" to "embed" a youtube video? I thought it would be , like on some other sites. But, that did not work)

I don't think there are youtube tags, as inline video was deemed at some point annoying or a possible route for spam.

Re the video:

a) I wouldn't base all valet experiences on one involving a lambo and a foreign country;
b) the comments say that it wasn't a valet, it was the owner!

Also, Ferris seems appropriate:

vB3 lacks video embed tags. vB4 and later can embed video.

... actually, we might make a custom tag that does the trick here. Like the spoiler tag. Never thought of that before now.

Ok, got it worked out. My first effort worked, but would allow someone to iframe in just about anything. Real security headache.

It's set to YouTube only now. Check their embed code, and grab the video ID only. With the above video, you click the Embed tab on the YouTube page and get this code:

<iframe width="420" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/eTDMr1ZY-98" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Copy just the ID code shown in red. Then construct your BB code like this:

They are, for the most part, not annoying (never heard something like that from other sites I have been on, where one can use the youtube tags).

As for #1, yes, that is valid, but I was posting this more for a "joke" (I still don't let valets park any of our cars at any casino, as the garage/parking lot is not far away (plus, it's good to get some exercise)). As for #2, it says "Hotel Valet". As for the comments, yes, a number of them say the owner. But, a number of them also refute that, and WAY more of them say it was the valet person. Here's a better link that definitely states it was the valet "person":
