This template is for individual video pages. It is intended to standardise the use of video on the site. Its use is confined to Youtube clips at present but could be developed for video from any source, including a possible Wikispooks streaming video server.
The optional sections will allow it to be picked up by Template:SMWDocs.

Blue parameters are for a single Wikispooks page name (If no suitable page exists, then pick a title for a future page)
Brown parameters are for numbers
Green parameters are for comma-separated lists of page names (Or planned page names).
Navy parameters are for dates
Orange parameters are for booleans. (Usually, either "Yes" or just leave blank).
Purple parameters are URLs.
Violet parameters are slash-separated lists.
Pink parameters are for coordinates.
Crossed out parameters were formerly available, but have been upgraded. Some may still work, but do not use these.
