Hello, to fix your problem. When you want to post a youtube link, you simply go to the link of the youtube video.
Take the numbers and letters at the end starting ussauly with v=. Go to the Vid-Youtube button at the top when you go to make a post or reply to someone, then paste that code into the box and there ya go.

Example: www.youtube.com... /watch?v=MfOnq-zXXBw
you would copy everything after the v= so you would copy MfOnq-zXXBw, then press the vid-youtube button
at the top of reply box and and paste that code into that box.
Wallah!

EDIT: DO NOT PASTE THE v= JUST THE CODE AFTER IT

I know how hard it can be. This is a pretty good link to how to put just about anything into the posts or threads you make. With a little study and practice you will look cool too.

edit: When you begin to explore just how to do these things a little more, go to somebody else's post that has links to vids like you want to do and hit quote on their post and you will see how to use bracket code (BBcode) syntax.
