I tried before I knew this.... gave up. The problem is that newbies will not know.

I sympathise, Linda, and had the same concerns. I think we are stuck with this method for now. To help a little, I've just changed this topic to 'a sticky' so that it stays on top (I think...) and hopefully everyone will come across it sooner rather than later. Otherwise PMing el g with technical questions and Meido or myself with general ones, is the way to go.

I have forgotten how to post a video here - which was more complicated than just clicking on "youtube" and inserting the url. Could someone give me the details again, please?

1. In YouTube, highlight (double-click) and copy (Ctrl-C) video link.
2. To compose your post in ZenSpace, click on the YouTube icon, and don't move the cursor.
3. Paste (Ctrl-V) the video link. It should nestle between the 2 bracketed youtubes.
4. Edit the video link: delete everything from the = sign back to and including the h in http.
5. Preview before Submitting.

Additionally, to take a peak at an example of how it should look, hit " on someone else's video post.
