I think I know the answer about two "equal" signs.
If you copy the link at a point where the video has already begun playing, it may contain an additional instruction to start playing at a later point
than the beginning.
From memory, the added symbols will be something like "&t=50s", where the added time ("t") is 50 seconds. So you also need to delete that bit at the
end, from & onwards, or make sure it isn't there when you copy the link.
If you have selected a video from some kind of listing, then the link in that case will also be abnormal.
