I know these are posted periodically around here, but sometimes when you are new you aren't real sure where to look to begin with to get the help on how to do it. So maybe this will help some of you now trying to figure it out.

It really is pretty simple once you see it done! I hope this helps and good luck on your journey here as it can be a wild ride!

An additional point which may catch people out (it has sometimes caught me out);
If the number you're quoting ends in something like "&t=45s", then you have accidentally copied a link to a point part-way through the video, and it won't post right.

Good point. I have problems if the link is part of a playlist. Can you remind me how to fix that?

Buckle your seat belts ATS because I'm a comin'!

So it would never work for me for the last few years because I forgot to erase the first part of the link.

In your second example it should be only be

dQw4w9WgXcQ

Not

watch?v=dQw4w9WgXcQ&feature=emb_logo

Between the tags.



In your first video...I dunno what you did but this

PL3e1orPYt_4aa7TcZ606HGSGTLpHj0Skg

Is definitely not a valid youtube video.

What i do is simply copy the video headline and paste it into the youtube search box
Then you have the video without the playlist

I've met that before.
What I do is come out of the video, and then go to my "history" and start the video again from there. The video then has the normal link instead of the playlist link.
