    I saw one chap who modified code for his VB and it played the youtube vids
    on the foruim itself. Something like this :
    SEMrush
    [youtube] youtube vid link [/youtube]

    I wonder if we can do the same for phpbb ? Has anyone tried it out ?

    You can also use the flash BBCode. Not going to go into detail though.

    If you're using SMF, there is a MOD that plays Youtube videos and 50 other videos from various sites. No embedded code. Just use the direct URL and the video would appear directly on the thread.

    There is a MOD for phpBB for this purpose. However, it is not as powerful as SMF's.
