    I had trouble embedding a YouTube video as well. According to the instructions, you just place the YouTube URL between the Youtube tags. However, it wouldn't work, so I just used the URL tags instead. It''s not embedded, but it just takes a click to see your video.

    I use tapatalk so I'm used to seeing errors in posts, any post with more than one link has a paragraph of hyperlink, the the first "link" (when clicked on) open the address in the second link???

    Anyways, back to the issue at hand . . .

    When you paste your video in between the [ youtube ] frames, make sure you remove the "S" from the httpS://, as the S denotes a secure connection, and we do not have that when we try to view your videos as we are not signed in as you!
