Examples

Default usage
{{yt|MmB9b5njVbA}}
Custom width
{{yt|MmB9b5njVbA|720}}
Inline alignment
{{yt|MmB9b5njVbA|align=inline}}
{{yt|MmB9b5njVbA|align=inline}}
Custom caption
{{yt|MmB9b5njVbA|caption=''Minecraft'' official trailer.|nocat=y}}
Minecraft official trailer.

With an image frame

Sometimes it makes sense to put the video in an image frame so that it formats like an image:

{{FakeImage|{{yt|MmB9b5njVbA|nocat=y}}|Minecraft Trailer from 2011|align=right}}

This can unclutter the pages a lot. You also get to add a caption.
