    Posting iPhone YouTube Links?

    Is there an easy way to post a YouTube link from an iPhone? I'm using the classic mobile interface so I have to enter the codes manually. Here's a sample of the kind of links I get:



    https://youtu.be/7wvJXkBZ-68

    You need this kind of URL where YouTube is youtu.be in the link.

    I edited your post above.

    I used YouTube on an iPad. You can press the share button and copy the link. Then paste the link using the [ video ] brackets.

    I think this was a workaround Jed devised to get a political video on PE without getting any flack.

    I actually think I didn't even think about what I was posting (because that was a pretty random Colbert bit!). I think it was just what was in the top of YouTube's suggested videos for me.

    I don't use Tapatalk that often - only when I want to post a photo from my phone.

    YouTube videos on mobile devices are prefaced by a "m." delineator. Delete this and you've got the fullsize YouTube video.
