Youtube id link
I wonder if anyone knows the correct way to provide a link to a youtube video when uploading?
The example for the box gives: e.g. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=md5lDmPbX8Y&... and highlights 'md5lDmPbX8Y'.
Having tried this several times with no joy, could anyone enlighten me?
I have put youtube's own link (not working), and the full link from my browser which does work if included in the description text.
(The videos that I have tried this with are open to public viewing and not marked private)
I would be grateful for clear guidelines if any available.
