I tried to put a song on a reply to a poem, but it didn't work, when I used the youtube option. So I just pasted a link. But I was wondering, what might I have done wrong. First, I went to youtube, and found the song, went to embed, brought it down, and copied it. Then I came back to the reply and went to the Youtube option, and pasted the embed code between the brackets. Posted the reply and had a big blank space. Figured I'd done something wrong and started all over again with the same result. What am I supposed to be doing that I am not? Am I skipping a step?
See if this helps... Let me know. If not, I can help more. It's not the "embed code" you need to use. It's all the characters after v= at the end of the URL which is the Video ID#. Then you have to select it and hit the Youtube tab at the top of the posting window. This link will explain it step by step.
