    Yes, but there are people to embed them into posts and I was wondering how that was done.

    Oh! Another thing I want to add, this does not seem to work in Windows 8, in either Pale Moon (Firefox port) or Internet Explorer. Will test in Chrome soon. Anybody got tips on using this on Windows?

    .....am I missingsomething again?.....why go through this ritual.....why doesn't everyone just copy the link at the very top of the video and then simply paste it into the body of your message???  Two steps takes about 5 seconds.

    Wait, hold on, I think I got it...

    YESS! It worked!

    Okay, looks like Method 2 WILL NOT WORK WITH Firefox, Pale Moon or any other Firefox derrivative.

    Okay method 1 works but only in blog posts. Any way to get them in forum posts?

    I can't get it to work either. Probably a Linux thing.

    Ditto to BryPin and LadyAngel. Help! BTW, I'm using Pale Moon, a lightweight version of Firefox.

    Can somebody help me out, I get as far as BryPin. So I also can not copy the video.

    I do not have Windows, but I have Linux - Ubuntu 12.04.

    Are there any Linux users, that have finally figured it out????
