You don't seriously expect phpBB to add site-specific BBCodes for various video (or whatever) sites, do you?
So that would include all of the niche video services (anime or porn, for example) along with YouTube, Vimeo, etc. (Please don't bother replying until you get back to reality.
Seriously, phpBB (like Web browsers) supports the major standard Web formats (so Flash video can sometimes play using the FLASH tags), but it doesn't support site-specific formats. Trying to chase all of them is a fool's errand.
And remember that even the IMG tag likely doesn't support all image formats (because browsers don't). For example, try linking to TIFF, TGA, BMP, FlashPix or Photoshop files and see if they all work.
