Trying to post YouTube clips on DU but only the links are appearing

Was able to post the actual screens with the start arrows up 'til today.

Any suggestions?

1. Strangely, the same thing happened to me last night

So I just kept trying things to get another link - finally hit the "like" button under the video and then copied the link in the list of my "liked" videos - and that one worked. I have no idea why.

2. Can you point me to the links you've posted?

A lot of times web sites add all kinds of information to the YouTube URL (web address), information that can prevent embedding.

The link should look like this (I put a space after .com so it would show):

https://www.youtube.com /watch?v=tYuqnUs9gP8

If the link has other info beginning with a # or another ? or an =, it might not embed. I'm not certain of this, but that's been my experience.

4. On the YouTube video screen

Right click on the Settings (cog) control, bottom right corner. Select first option: 'Copy Video URL'.

Paste here.
