inserting Utube links

Recommended Posts

I am trying to insert a UTube piece.

On Utube I click on EMBED and copy, and it is HTTPS

I paste this into the little insert Media symbol on CB

my video shows up - singing and dancing,

I think all is fine

I click on Save my DRAFT and poof!!! it is gone

my video is gone, there are just two little words left media media

what am I doing wrong???

I have spent an hour messing around with this......argh

Ladybug, all I do is copy the URL for the video, and drop it right into the post I'm writing. It always seems to work that way.

I should be more specific.

I copy the URL, and then I click on "Edit" and then "Copy."

Next I go to my post, click in it to pick where I want the video, and then I hit "Command" and the letter "V."

I have no idea if that's the right way to do it, but it works for me.

Copy the complete address in the browser window of the YouTube video you want to post.

(I use copy and paste)

Do not copy the embed address.

In your post click the insert media button, ex, below

paste your link into the little window, and click Insert Media

If you do not click Insert Media after pasting your link it will not work.

Hope this helps!

Is it still working that way? I can't figure out how to insert a video in my blog posts? Sorry.

Just been to your blog. It looks like it's working ok.

Thank you! I figured it out a bit after asking. That the "thing to do" was to not do anything specific. Thank you!
