  • I thought it would just be a cut and paste, but that didn't work.

  • Yes, it is! I just did this (for the first time, surprisingly) a couple of days ago.

    Find your youtube video, copy the URL, paste it into your post. Worked for me, anyway. : )

  • PS. It doesn't work in preview, you have to post to see if it worked.

    Hmmm, sometimes posting the link posts just the link, sometimes it embeds the video for me.

  • Even if you use the "Insert Hyperlink" button, it tries to embed the video.

    And even if you leave off the "http://" part.

  • Cera just posted a LINK on a different thread.  We may have to ask her how she did it.

  • This is the link Cera used:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vwqv_ZJrp6U&feature=youtu.be

    So let me test that last part with another YT video:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nEPA22ja0MU&feature=youtu.be

    And then without &feature=youtu.be:



    Okay, so placing &feature=youtu.be after the YT url will result in the video not being embedded in the thread.

    I had to post to see the result, as preview doesn't give me an idea.

  • Interesting.  I wonder why this happens.

  • Sometimes the links won't embed the video for whatever reason (it might have to do with your browser's interface with the link address), but what works for me is to put your cursor at the end of the link, then back space (deleting a character) each time before you try to embed the video. Eventually, usually after about five backspaces, but it varies, the video will embed.

    I just did it by accident. When I cut-and-paste the link sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. Beats me.
