Trying to create a topic and posted a Youtube video. It only shows the link and refuses to show the video. Am I doing something wrong?

If you're using the youtube.com URL, try the youtu.be URL. And, vice versa. Other than that, I don't know.

This has been happening quite a lot to me recently.

Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights..."

I don't understand this. Are you saying that I should put a period in between the u and b? Because I did that and it doesn't work.

haha, no. YouTube has a shortcut URL located at "youtu.be". If you click "Share" underneath the video you're trying to post, the "youtu.be" link will be displayed. It might embed the video better.

That is, go to YouTube and you'll see "Share" underneath the video. That should give you the shortcut link.

OK, it seems that certain videos can't be put up.
