You Tube - Help me out here.

This is just me, being personal with my opinion, or is it just me.

I don't like the fact that when I put a You Tube link in a thread that the video pops up, and when it does, it is never at the point in the video that I would prefer it to be. But that's just me. I would rather click on a link and go to the You Tube site so I an view in full screen, or whatever I wish to do.

So, is it just me?

Is there a way around it when posting a You Tube link?

I know, picky, picky.

The YouTube "video thumbnail" - the picture you first see in the video link - can be set by the video owner. If the owner does not set it, YouTube defaults to a thumbnail. For video owners, the thumbnail is settable on the video "edit" page.

All I do is like I do for all links, I copy the url and paste it into the forum box. No other video except You Tube has ever put a thumbnail or picture, just the linked name.

Can you provide an example of posting a You Tube URL without having the thumbnail?

Thanks.

So did you parse that or is it something that one can click on, copy, and paste?

The difference I see is the "watch?v="

Then, if you click on the thumbnail and open up Youtube you get the same thing with:
after "com/watch?v=" (the string Ynb.....)and then "&feature=player_embedded"

If you click on just the link you provided without the thumbnail you get:
after "com/watch&tv=" (the string Ynb....) and then "&feature=youtu.be"

They all work, but I'm looking for the simple solution of just highlighting the link, as I always do, and pasting it into the application. I don't want the thumbnail, and I only get it on YouTube links.

Irv2 automatically does a video player embed if the link being pasted contains "www.youtube.com." This is something irv2 does, not YouTube.

YouTube has a standard shorthand link format which is just "youtu.be" After which you just append the video ID (no watch?v= stuff). You can always edit the long form YouTube link you copied and pasted (the "www.youtube.com/watch....") AFTER you paste it into irv2 with just a few judicious uses of the delete character key. That's what I did for my demo post above.

I suspect folks like the automatically embeded player, no other windows to open - it's quick and easy. The link to the actual YouTube video page is always at the top of the embeded player if the person wants to go to the YouTube page instead.

You might get more details by posting to the irv2 tech issues forum iRV2 Forum Issues - iRV2 Forums

Just my 2 cents - You are making it harder than it needs to be IMHO.

I am over and out on this one....
