Posting embedded Youtube videos

Recommended Posts

If you want to embed youtube videos in your post, just cut and paste the entire link as shown below which includes the http at the front:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UtQragQ_CEo - URL address posted as a link (will not show as video)

 

 

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UtQragQ_CEo


The actual address you see above is posted as a link and will not display as a video below it.  If the link you pasted shows as a link and not a video, you will need to highlight the entire link and select the Unlink button post-16-0-52808400-1397912269.jpg on the edit bar above your text then click Save Changes.  

 

After you click the Unlink button it should appear with no underline:

(If you are going back into the post to edit, you need to select the "Use Full Editor" button at the bottom of the edit window in order to have the Unlink button available.

for some reason, when I select the link button, the box and page gets stuck and won't close. I have to leave and come back. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. If I just try to paste a link in the text, nothing happens when I click paste.

All I did was copy the you tube url and paste it here in reply window...video opened automatically even before I hit the submit reply button...

The video I had posted here originally I just removed by having the mouse cursor down near the right lower corner which is really a black flashing bar then I hit backspace and video was gone.

 

Now posted another you tube...
