I could certainly see the benefits in some areas. For instance:

1. Video Game section could post game clips and trailers
2. WEPR posts links to videos anyway for citation purposes

And that's about all I could see the need for videos.

Well I still say look at how facebook handles it. They only load when click and the thumbnails load practically instantly. But facebook isn't a forum so I don't know how it works coding wise.

I think posting music videos in popular media thread. Although it could get spammy?

And any type of animations done could be posted in the art music and writing forum.

We've already discussed having an area where people can showcase their SWF files, art, music, etc., on AG3 at some point. I doubt we're going to bother with a [youtube] tag in the forums, but *may* do something like that ONLY when writing a game review/spolier.
