3. Linking to YouTube or Vimeo without embedding.

[p class="post-edited" style="margin-top:-1.5em;"]YouTube changed their URL handling - need to use html entity instead of URL encode character

To post a link to a video on YouTube without embedding it replace the '?' with '?' (its HTML entity):

[div style="margin-left:1.5em;"][font style="color:#000099;"]http://www.youtube.com/watch[font style="color:#ffffff; background-color:#3366cc;"]?[/font]v=VyqzPu5pX6U[/font]

[div style="margin-left:1.5em;"][font style="color:#000099;"]http://www.youtube.com/watch[font style="color:#ffffff; background-color:#3366cc;"]?[/font]v=VyqzPu5pX6U[/font]

This is also possible with videos on Vimeo by adding a '%3' before the video's number:

[div style="margin-left:1.5em;"][font style="color:#000099;"]http://vimeo.com/8947397[/font]
[div style="margin-left:1.5em;"][font style="color:#000099;"]http://vimeo.com/[font style="color:#ffffff; background-color:#3366cc;"]%3[/font]8947397[/font]
This works by creating a URL encode character of the first number of the video's id.
[div style="width:100%; height:1.2em; border-bottom: 1px solid #bfbfbf;"]
I don't think there is a solution for the marquee tag on DU3 (thank goodness!).
