I'd like to post something from Youtube- the help I've gotten is in indecipherable tech talk or I'm stupid. It's imbedded.
This is what I get, How do I shorten it to a link-

<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="https://www.youtube.com/v/50CCWDfCEuM&hl=en&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="https://www.youtube.com/v/50CCWDfCEuM&hl=en&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always"
allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>

I'm lost and talk to me like I'm 3 please.

Well, what you want is the "https://" part. It would make it easier to explain if you told me where you got the stuff you posted above.

In general, if you just copy and paste whatever appears in the address bar when you're on the page you want to link to, it'll turn it into a link.

Well there you go, you have the link. We're halfway there to putting it into your post.

So here's what you do.

First, paste the link into a new post like you just did.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=50CCWDfCEuM&feature=related

Now, look at the link. See where it says "watch?v=50CCWDfCEuM&feature=related"? You want to remove everything before, and including, the v=. Then remove everything after, and including, the &feature.

So what you're left with is this:

50CCWDfCEuM

Now you need to put yt tags around it so it looks like this:




That's all!
