XF 1.1 What to replace to change Youtube or Video tags


Active member
Hello peeps !

I'd like to replace my old PhpBB Youtube tags and don't know where to start.

I've installed the (very nice) Post Content Find/Replace tool found here : http://xenforo.com/community/threads/post-content-find-replace.6548/

I've tried to reply in the thread but it seems to be archived and can't reply.

I need some help on what to put on those find and replace forms.

Thanks for the help in advance and sorry if that is a dumb question but this is beyond my knowledge ;)

Happy Xenforo User !
