This template is designed to allow youtube videos to be embedded on song-pages in an inobtrusive but easily seen way. Meaning: this template can be used on a page below the {{Song}} template, but above the <lyrics> tag and other badge templates (such as {{WP-Song}}, {{B-Hits}}, {{No.1}}, etc.) which often appear on the tops of pages.

The video is fit to a somewhat small width (250px wide) which makes it line up gracefully with the other common in-lyrics-box templates and still allows a decent amount of width for viewing lyrics.

Usage:
{{youtube embed|<<YouTube-ID>>|<<link text>>}}

where the ID is the 11-character bit in bold:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=12XYabcdeFG&feature=...

Example:

{{Song|Doo-Wops & Hooligans (2010)|Bruno Mars|star=Silver}}
{{youtube embed|LjhCEhWiKXk}}
{{No.1|the United States|the United Kingdom|Australia|Canada|the Netherlands|New Zealand}}
{{B-Hits}}
{{WP-Song|Just the Way You Are (Bruno Mars song)|Just the Way You Are}}

<lyrics>
Oh, her eyes, her eyes
Make the stars look like they're not shining

Produces something that looks like this.

Note: If this template is used on a song page, the |youtube parameter in the {{SongFooter}} can be omitted. The Footer will still display a link to the video's YouTube page.
