i keep having a frustrating problem posting
videos from Youtube into CF posts. When I copy the link from Youtube, I am viewing the video using the Youtube official iPad
What I do is I simply touch (on my iPad) the "share" symbol on the Youtube App video viewer. It looks like an arrow. Then I select "copy link" from the drop down menu. Then I paste that link into my text I am writing on CF for my post.
But, then, when I post my comments or text with that link, the LINK shows, but no youtube video viewer is embedded.
I would prefer to see the Youtube video viewer embedded into the post so people do not have to leave CF to view the videos.
What am I doing wrong? ???
Please make your suggestions to fit the fact that I am using:
2. Youtube official APP on the iPad.
Also, I did paste that copied link directly into the text I was writing. Then I also used the "LINK" icon (looks like a globe with a link on it) shown in the CF text editor to insert the link too. In both cases, the link is pasted into my text, but the video viewer window is not. ???
Here is a request I posted earlier today in a thread:
Unfortunately I cannot understand why when I copy a Youtube link using my ipad, that it does not embed here on CF with a viewer here, and only posts the link. ???? IF anyone knows what I am missing or doing wrong or can suggest how to copy the link from Youtube, while viewing using the Youtube app on an ipad, such that it DOES embed the viewer here on CF, please let me know (a PM is OK). NOTE: I am using the Youtube APP and I simply click or touch on the "share/link" button on the app to copy the URL to the video. But, when I paste that into my post here on CF, only the link shows.
