Use the youtube tag in brackets but make sure to remove the "s" from the "https" part of the URL.

Help me. I'm a bit of a dummy. What do I do with it? Just copy it and paste it in to my posting?

Paste the web address of the YouTube video, then click on Full Editor & Preview button.

Next highlight the web address, then Click on the "youtube" button at top right of editor window. It will add brackets. Next remove the "s" from web address (IE change https to http).

Then submit your post as normal.

So, backing up a bit, I right click on the video and a menu comes down

Copy video URL

Copy video URL at current time

Copy embed code

Which one do I want?

Just copy the web address not the embed code.

I'm so dumb.

Show me what you pasted and then show what it looks like with the deletions, just before you select it and click on you tube.
