[color=858585]Hopefully, I'll be able to say this without it being confusing, but I'm not making any promises.lol. It's really quite simple to do, but
probably not so simple for me to explain.

reason I asked is because when I was first learning how to embed videos on here, I noticed that most videos cannot be viewed while still on the ATS
'Post Preview' page, but will
work correctly after being posted in the thread. I assume that it is like that for others too, and not just me,
but I don't actually know for sure.
Anyways, after realizing that, I accidentally discovered a way around it, which allows the video to play while still in the preview area. Personally,
I think it comes in quite handy. Especially since I have in the past found some videos which had been set so that they could not be viewed on other
websites. I prefer being able to check it out in the preview area first.
Now, I do this on every single video that I post, and am able to check all of them out before posting. There might be other ways also, but this
works for me every time, so I have had no need to look for any other solution.
I add that↑ immediately after the unique video code, on every video that I embed on here. Some of the video URL's already have it, but there are
others that do not. It doesn't matter either way, though. I still add it to each.
So this↑ is all that you need in order for the video to work properly after being posted, but you cannot check it out in the preview.
By simply adding the '[color=FFD470]&feature=related', the video can be viewed in the preview area, so you can see if it's gonna work before
you post it. Like this↓
