Adding a video
To add a video, you need the id code for the video. The easiest way to get this is to look at the URL of the video from YouTube or Google Video page. The string of numbers and letters after the "v=" in the URL is the id code. For example http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NvQScRuZj9s. The id code is NvQScRuZj9s. For Google Video you need the docid. For example http://video.google.co.uk/videoplay?docid=-2723280415645626938. The doc id is : -2723280415645626938

<youtube>id code</youtube> <googlevideo>docid</googlevideo>
