That's all I can get when I copy and paste the video URL. Just the URL, not the video itself.
Are you using the Youtube button to put the youtube codes around it? Put it inside these and it will work:
I just put those examples without it to show the raw URLs. Also, if you quote my post you will see it. That is how I figured it out because I noticed some of TalkWagner's videos posted and some did not, then I saw the posted ones had the shorterURL.

I was back and forth on the phpbb tech forum yesterday regarding the best way to post YouTube videos as I wanted to make it as straightforward as possible. Got some very conflicting responses and results.
Currently the most reliable way as VdD says is when you're on YouTube
1) right click on the video and get the "Copy Video URL"
2) on the "Post a Reply" page, look for the youtube button above the typing window.
3) paste (Ctrl-V) into the middle of the of the youtube tags. (Your cursor should already be there.)
I'll play around with a few other devices and I'll write it up when I have a definitive guide of all methods.
