I think you mean "loop". I would have not thought it possible. Hope the cargo is tied down well.


Yes, a loop.

I would presume that the cargo hold was empty.

Who said that I’ve made it home yet?

The link I posted apparently worked for you, didn’t it?

OK, not yet home, but could you have embedded the video?

Try, not so difficult at all. I am just encouraging people to learn how to cope with the ancient forum SW. ;)

No hard feelings.

I even found this tip:

https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/171780?hl=en

But from my IPad I cannot get “Embed” after clicking on Share.

94 year old gets Trump reelected in 2020 :lol:

Absolutely masterful. If you oppose Trump 2020 you will shit your drawers. Quite astounding because he never served in the military. Of course, neither did Obama or Hillary or Fauxahontas

They shouldn't have cut her off, instead ask her what her options were?

How do you embed?

As I said before the outdated forum SW does not recognize many features currently in use in youtube links, like in your case URL shortening. The most obvious being the s in https.

The easiest way to embed your link is to follow to Youtube and copy the URL from there:
Code:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HTuL2-ND-68&feature=youtu.be
. Then remove the tail starting with &, &feature=youtu.be. And of course remove the s from the https. So you get
Code:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HTuL2-ND-68
that forum code understands.



There are other issues too, like time_continue tag that appears when you start an embedded video then go to youtube to copy the address.

Code:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=15&v=BJpY7zQ6OHc


The solution is to remove the extras between the ? and v= and of course the s from the https:

Code:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BJpY7zQ6OHc


Which plays well:



One other issue I have noticed when trying embed videos from playlists, for example copied from youtube:

Code:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qQ21KgHF4_U&list=RDqQ21KgHF4_U&t=12


Here remove everything starting with the trailing & and the obligatory s.

Code:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qQ21KgHF4_U




So the generic algorithm to tidy up URLs from youtube is as follows:

0) Follow the url shortening (youtu.be) link to youtube.
1) remove the s from the https.
2) remove everything between watch? and v=.
3) remove everything starting with trailing & (that looks like a feature code).

I hope this helps.
