Copy the full url of the video,  hit the hyperlink button on the post reply toolbar, paste it, done.

Thanks.


My problem was that i did use the default "share" button on YouTube. And that is a short link.

You don't even have to do that. If you just paste the YouTube URL into a post it will get automatically converted to an inline video by the software. Which is a very annoying misfeature when you don't want it to do that (for example it will corrupt any modifiers you put on the link such as a start time).

It is very useful to have the short URL workaround available to avoid the SMF software breaking your links when you don't want it to mess them up.
I'm not an EE--what am I doing here?
