Can someone tell me how to embed a YouTube video clip into a Post? I can "copy & paste" the URL to the clip; but was hoping to actually show the "clip" with the play arrow to make it more visual for other members. I have seen other members do this; but guess I am not as tech savvy. Trying to reduce my frustration levels so it is easier to ask for help than pulling my hair out. Thanks.

click on the "Special BBCode" button (3rd from the left of the edit box toolbar), choose media in the BBCode selection list, paste video URL in the "Media URL" box.

I just copy the address in the top address bar, not those that show below the video.

Yah, exactly what Nancy says.  Do NOT right click on the video to bring up a menu, either.  The address you need is in your browser address bar, select/copy/paste that directly into a post and TADA! when you hit "Post" the actual video will show.

For online gifs and images I use Google images then right click when I find one, copy and paste. Some images don't allow for copying so I just choose another. I can't post them from my kindle though, only from my computer. Which is weird because I can post videos. Oh and for personal pics I use tinypic.com. some use photobucket :)

We say here that it is better to be a nonsmoker with the occasional desire to smoke than a smoker with the constant desire to quit. Marciem
Being successful doesn't mean that you'll never GET to smoke again. It means that you'll never HAVE to smoke again.

for jpeg and gif, you need to copy the URL that ends in .jpg or .gif, then come here and choose the image icon, wihch is on the second row of your message box icons, it looks like a portrait of a tree to me, if you hover over each one the name of it will show, and this one says "image"... click on that, and a box will pop up that you can paste your url into.
