Possible Duplicate:
Fail of markdown parser detected if _ are used in naked url
Link with double-underscored word in URL renders incorrectly

I'm posting this video as part of the solution to this question, but the problem is that the YouTube URL parser chokes on the link.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_-G520ACFUo

The URL has both a dash and underscore in it and that seems to break the parser.

The short version does not work either.

I have performed wizardry; URL-encoding the underscore as %5f seems to be a workaround. For reference, here's the answer, and here's the last borked revision. Oh, and that particular video has embedding disabled, anyway. –  lunboks Jan 3 '12 at 0:55
    
Ah, this is actually another form of this issue. –  Tim Stone Jan 3 '12 at 7:07
