How to post a YouTube video:

In the posting panel, push the YouTube button.

You'll see something that looks like this:

In the YouTube window, copy only the part of the address I've outlined in red:

Paste this part between the YouTube brackets and click 'submit'.

Voila! You are now funky!
Don't blame me! I voted for Bernie!

Alternatively, you can paste the link, highlight the link text, and click the "youtube" button. That's easier for fat fingers and old eyes like mine. I can't get the link between the youtubes :D :D
