I have to fix about 20 video's a week where people have just copied from the address bar.

As I have stated in other posts, if you are posting from a channel page, use a short link or an embedded link, it does not work.

Although it's a few more clicks, doing it Jim's way will work 100% of the time.

I have never had any problems with posting any video's to the forum, I was not bought up with computers well there simply were no such thing, and it just seemed a complex way of doing it, i was not knocking him it just seemed to be a long way around.

All good Hawk.

I think it's great to have this tutorial now as we often get a lot of questions asking how to do it.

It might seem like a lot of steps, but it's only really 3 mouse clicks.

Share - Options - Long Link - CRTL-C - CTRL-V to paste it into your post.

Our forum software here is pretty smart and can often resolve most links, some other sites are not so this might prove helpful in other places too.
