    I can't seem to figure it our but everyone seems to be able to do it but me.

    I just copy/paste the link directly on the page......

    weird- I tried the normal link and the embedding code but neither seemed to work. i wonder if it's a Mac thing.

    It took me a while, but I finally found the most pathetically simple solution there is.

    CLICK AND DRAG. But not the large screen that is ready to play. It only works for those little screens on display to the right or the menu display when you do an initial search on You Tube.

    Since you cannot do this with the larger, ready to play screens you, have to play anything else on the menu in order to transfer that video to the menu. Then you can click and drag it.

    After you get the Youtube video to display, click on the "share" button (facebook twitter etc), the link is there, copy and just paste it on your post. I don't know how Mac's work; so I don't know if this will work for you. But, anyway, that's how I do it.

    Thanks MsD for posting that for me.

    The ol drag and drop eh? I'll have to see if I can do that.

  • misanthropic

    Well that stinks... doesn't seem to work for me and I used the small screen from the search. I give up .

    I have a mac, so I know you an embed them.

    After you copy/paste the link and put it in the comment place, then you highlight the link. Then you push the little intact link icon in the apps. Just above the smiley face, and to the left of the little tree.

    Something comes up and prompts me to copy/paste the url again. I follow that and then the youtube video shows up when I submit.

    Hope it works for you. I had to try a couple times before I got it right.

    i use firefox, i have to click on 'html' and input the link that contains the <a code. then return to writing the letter.

    Don't give up.

    Make the link to the video PAGE active, and the vid embeds automatically. You'll see. Do this:
