You can paste the link like this:

1. go to Share under the video you want on Youtube and then copy the URL

Vhttps://youtu.be/wilCy783kU0

2. Then Highlight the link, paste it where you want it.

3. click the chain icon and lay in the link you copied again to actually make hyperlink live like I did above. Unlike online or in Word, AR doesn't automatically let pasted links be live without the second step.

 

Now if you want a clean embeded video in a frame like I did on this post:

This Amazing Remodeled House... is for the Birds!

           see midway down my post, this screen shot is live on that post:

thomas j nelson

            This is just screen shot, go to my post link to see it live.

  • Go he embed code from share on youtube  and copy the HTML code
  • Click This icon on your blog menu <> icon
  • then paste the HTML code into window the  <> icon once you click it.
  • The frame auto-populates your post and you caN EVEN RESIZE IT LIKE A PHOTO. oops ignore caps.
  • You won't see the video appear until you post, but you can always go back an edit.

Make sense John Henry  ?

HEY EVERYONE!! I figured it out thanks to all of you.  You have to get the embed code from the share link under the video, copy, then paste it into the video link.

The problem was: I wasn't seeing the video show at all until all the other information was typed in.

SO: Here it is!!
