Can there be a field to embed YouTube video?
Here's a question for all you smart people...

In our directory, I would like to add a field for members to paste their video intro embed code so that their listing also displays a video for would-be clients to view. My tech guy wasn't sure if Gossamer Links would allow HTML in the fields so I thought I would check with you all here.

He says we could definitely add a field where folks could enter the video code (not the embed code), but the problem I am foreseeing is that there are going to be a lot of folks with questions on how to do that, etc. I want to avoid having to give a lot of hand-holding and instead make it really simple and understandable (people are used to just copying and pasting video embed codes, not hunting or knowing where to look for video codes).

So what say you? Is it possible to have a field in the submit form where they just paste their video's embed code so that it will display in their listing for client's to play? If so, is there anything I need to pass onto my tech guy on how to set that up?

Oh, here is the link to our directory: http://virtualassistantnetworking.com/directory/
