Oops sorry @cybnet will bear this in mind for future. I have added the function that stores the custom fields value into my question.

comment Displaying information from custom field on custom post type
@anjum this is a custom taxonomy (i think) here is the code that generates the custom post type and the category: ` // V Custom Post Type add_action( 'init', 'create_videos' ); function create_videos() { register_post_type( 'videos', array( 'labels' => array( 'name' => __( 'Videos' ), 'singular_name' => __( 'Video' ) ), 'public' => true, 'taxonomies' => array("category"), 'has_archive' => true, 'supports' => array( 'title', 'editor', 'thumbnail' ), ) ); }`

comment Displaying information from custom field on custom post type
Thanks @cybnet I tried your suggestion but I still have an issue where every single video I add is displayed - wordopress is ignoring the fact that I want commercial videos posted with the commercial category and music videos posted with the music category. My loop is incorrect because it is not working the way I want it to.

I cannot add the videos id in the shortcode because this will not always be the same it will be different each time Video Short code :function wp_youtube_video($atts) { extract(shortcode_atts(array( 'id' => '' ), $atts)); return '<iframe title="YouTube video player" class="youtube-player" type="text/html" width="640" height="390" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/'.$atts['id'].'" frameborder="0" allowFullScreen></iframe>'; } add_shortcode('youtube', 'wp_youtube_video');

I dont want it to return the video id I want it to display the video in the front end when the user enters the id in the meta box. I want wordpress to display the video once the id has been entered.

Thanks. I do have a custom post type called videos which is why I placed that there. I have added the code you suggested to save the the video type but for some reason it wont display the video on the front end :(
