    Default How Do I Insert A Video Image Into A Post?

    Whenever I try to post video, it just shares a youtube link. Some of you post images that go straight to the video. How do you do that?

    For example, in this thread, Dixie posted awesome footage of an iguana running away from snakes - awesome! My link doesn't appear the same as Dixie's.

    1. Copy the URL of your video.

    2. Click insert video on the toolbar.

    3. Paste the URL into the pop up.

    4. Go to YouTube and give it a shot here.

    So...just switching from my iPad to my old Windows laptop made all the difference. I have no idea why. I use Google Chrome on the laptop and Safari on the iPad. There is no other difference that I can see.

    Thanks to Dixie and ZagaZags for helping me out. Zagazags's instructions (above) should work for others.

    What is really important is that if you are using a mobile device (including iPads/Surface) these things show you the mobile version of YouTube. You cannot use that version. You need to link to the video on the full YouTube website. Also, don't use a shortened version of a YouTube link. Always take the path from the full version of the website.

    Hope that helps.
