To post a YouTube video to your stream using the URL:

1. Locate a YouTube video you would like to publish in-line to your stream.
2. Copy the URL to your clipboard.

 

Tip:

For best results, grab the "naked" URL by removing the & and anything that comes after.

For instance:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tyCGxuuiSNM&feature=plcp

becomes

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tyCGxuuiSNM

YouTube may add modifiers to the URL address depending on how you've accessed the video. For instance, if you have accessed the video from a Recommended suggestion, often you will see an & sign with a modifier. These modified URLs may not always render when published on your stream.

 

3. Paste the URL into the content editor ensuring Quick tab is selected.
4. Click on Save Post or hit 'Enter' on your keyboard to publish and render your video into your stream.
