Found this MediaWiki extension: http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:EmbedVideo
I like the idea of embedding YouTube videos into the wiki. I bet Cova and the Indypendables would enjoy it too :)

This has been looked into before, but it opens up all sorts of security issues, so we decided against.

Besides, who needs embedding when you can add one of the funky {{Video}} icons next to your link? :)

If you can guarantee the thing isn't full of security exploits and loopholes...

But the main reason that the Wiki (or the forum, for that matter) doesn't look any better than it does, or that it doesn't have a great deal of functionality other than the basics... is because I'm not a coder or a programmer or a software person, so I'd have absolutely no idea what I was doing. So I stay well away from all that.
Have fun.

To be honest the Wiki doesn't need anything fancier than what it currently has anyway.
