How to properly share a YouTube video link?

Post by Phantom Riki » Mon May 17, 2021 1:33 am

I've been here for over a year now. Still this thing is out of my reach. Whenever I try to attach a YouTube video here,it doesn't get attached correctly. Here's a demonstration:

You have to copy the youtube.com/watch?v= link that appears on the address bar once you open the video, not the youtu.be link (which is a shortened link which is changed to the full link once you click on it).

For example, this is what the full link to the video looks like:

Code: Select all

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c_Lvs98JVxc[/youtube]
And here's the video appearing once you use that link:

When you click on the youtu.be link, you're redirected to the actual video with the full link, this link appearing on the address bar of the browser. You can copy it from there.

You can either do this or manually replace "youtu.be/" with "youtube.com/watch?v="

On this case:
https://youtu.be/c_Lvs98JVxc

Becomes:
https://youtube.com/watch?v=c_Lvs98JVxc
