if it has https you just need to take the "s" out and it should post. :)

What pretty lady said.

And you have to make sure it's in the standard format, not "you.tube/vid..." or any other short formats.

The youtube link needs to look like this to work:
Code: Select all
[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=21xZdCrO7GY[/youtube]


It can have http or https at the beginning, but there can't be anything after the v="VideoID". And, as Even Steven has mentioned, the short video links like youtu.be won't work -- at least at this time anyway.
