    Default New: Posting YouTube clips

    Youtube made some changes and now their url is different from the one you need to embed it on websites/forums. I have to do this when putting them in the ramblings, too.

    Instead of copying the url, you have to click "share" and then put that one in. See the pic:

    Notice how the url under 'share' is slightly different. That's the one you use.

    You paste this url in between the (video) tags (but with square brackets) or simply click this icon:

    Nope, you don't have to do the whole share URL thing. Just copy the regular URL when you are on a video page. It's the mobile URLs that can't be embedded.

    I tried embedding three different versions of the same video.

    The first one is a regular YouTube URL. I just copied what's in the address bar.

    The second one is a shortened URL like you get when you click the share button.

    The third one is a mobile URL you get when you surf YouTube on a tablet or phone through a browser instead of the YouTube app. I don't know why anyone would want to do it that way, but different strokes for different folks, I guess. Use the app, people.

    So this thread is pretty unnecessary
