    <?php
    
    if (!empty($_POST['video_id']) ){
        $video_id = $_POST['video_id']; 
        
        $pattern = '#\[youtube\](.+?)\[/youtube\]#'; 
        $convert_to_this = '<object width="480" height="385"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/\1?fs=1&amp;hl=en_US"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/\1?fs=1&amp;hl=en_US" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="480" height="385"></embed></object>';
        $user_enter_this = "[youtube]".$video_id."[/youtube]";
        
        $result = preg_replace($pattern, $convert_to_this, $user_enter_this); 
        
        echo $result;  
    }
    
    ?>
    
    <?php if (empty($_POST['video_id']) ): ?>
    <form method="post" action="">
    <input type="text" name="video_id" />
    <input type="submit" />
    </form>
    <?php endif; ?>
    
    Code (markup):
    1. user enter [youtube]video_id[/youtube] example: [youtube]yvuOtlpSAeY[/youtube]
    2. then it will be converted to embed video tag
    3. then you can add this on your wysiwyg editor
