Any guidance or the proper way would be much appreciated!

For google and youtube videos, you put the last bit of the url into tags (provided on the upper right hand side of the reply box)

If you copied the bit after the = sign. So in this case it would be

and wrap the [yvid] tags around it like so
(different brackets used so you can see how it should look) The video will come up on the screen like

easy, there's no need for that. It's a simple question which deserves a simple answer. Smugness is, well, uncalled for.

you can paste the http link directly like this:

or you can click the "globe" icon which will prompt you for a name of the link, then click ok and it will prompt you for the http address.

Both links go to the same place, just different formats.
