Youtube to forums

I recently put something on youtube so i could send the URL to this forums in one of my “focused critiques”. But every time i try to upload the URL it says “invalid file”. Does anyone know why this is happening to me?

you’ll have to link it, using the ‘insert-link’ button, I don’t know for sure,
but I’m guessing its probably to prevent spam that you can’t directly embed it.

What is this insert-link button?

You can either paste it directly, or, if you want to hide behind some text (looks nicer :)), you select the word and press the little Earth with a chain in front of it, then you paste the URL.

It would be so cool if you could imbed YouTube vids to BlenderArtists posts!

Thanks guys, ya i just posted it directly. :stuck_out_tongue: I feel stupid that i did not think of just pasting it directly :p.
