    Your link should look like this. Make sure to delete the other part of the link, then your video should show properly.

    [*YOUTUBE]RV4Nm_f5Idw[/YOUTUBE] <---correct (minus the"*" at the beginning)

    example:
    [YOUTUBE]RV4Nm_f5Idw[/YOUTUBE]

    [*YOUTUBE]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RV4Nm_f5Idw[/YOUTUBE] <---incorrect, will result in white box.

    example:
    [YOUTUBE]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RV4Nm_f5Idw[/YOUTUBE]

    The only part of the link you should paste between the {youtube} tags are the parts of the link after the = sign.

    So if it's youtube.com/asdfsadfsadf=12345 you would only pasts 12345 between the tags.
