1. Just include the URL of the youtube video from your browser in your post:

DU will embed it automatically.

For example I just copied this from my browser URL bar...

3. I've Wanted This Answer For A Long Time, But I Have One More

question about it. I have many links on my FB page that I would love to share, so was wondering of If I had to start the thread first and then paste my subject? I know sounds stupid and that's the way I would go about it, but sometimes I try things and they don't work.
Thanks in advance

4. Are these links...

links to youtube videos or links to different websites or something different.

Did you want to put these links in a new thread that you start on DU or
just in a post like the one you just made, or did you just want to post
a link on DU to your facebook page?

Bear in mind that some of us aren't on facebook so if you post links to your
information on facebooks some of us can't necessarily see it.

5. Two Things... I Have Images & Videos On My FB Page

that I may want to start a thread with, but also would like to add the image/video when I post a comment to an existing thread. I think starting a thread might be easier, but not sure.

6. Images and videos on Facebook that you link to in a DU post...

won't be automatically embedded by DU and some of us won't be
able to see the content because we don't have facebook accounts.

If you post the link DU will automatically make the link clickable.

Just don't put the link in the subject/title of you post as that doesn't work.

Try posting a link here in your next post in this thread.

10. Most likely a typo in the URL you manually typed in.

11. I Checked Several Times... Will Do Again, But

it was posted during S.C. not sure if that means anything. I couldn't copy it because it was a tweet and the only way I could see it was while I was on the tweet. Came in as a hashtag and when I left the tag the whole feed disappeared.

But, I'll try a little later... checking returns right now.
Thanks!
