    I got one that was hypnosis, but at the end it has a scary screaming face. Scared the crap outta me.

    If someone asks you to play the maze game (or maybe its called the impossible maze...I don't remember)...say NO :p

    A big scary face will pop up and scream at you halfway through the game

    "Hey Jaz, this link will take you to this cool dress up game withMuppets!"

    Embedding works and you do have the option to list a URL link to any page if that's what a user prefers. For example...here's the Fraggle Video Behind the Scenes.

    I actually like to know what I'm clicking instead of being tricked into going to a video site. If something is truly funny, it doesn't require bait-and-switch.

    Well then, how? Because I have been trying and trying and no matter what I do it turns into a video

    Agreed. I've never had a problem with it, even in the Jerry N thread where there were loads of pictures and videos...but then I may have a faster broadband speed than others.

    Ahhhh...I see your issue....​
    **Make sure to fill in the PAGE url and not the LINK url.***​
    :cool:

    Therein lies the problem though: with YouTube, the page URL and the link URL are one and the same.
  15. jvcarroll

    jvcarroll Well-Known Member

    The URLs are different. For example. :search:

    This is hard to post so bear with me. I added some spaces to the code so it wouldn't embed.

    The PAGE URL for the Fraggle video is: http: //www. youtube.com/watch?v=mEyrfFwf3rI&feature=colike
    This will link to the page.

    The LINK URL for the Fraggle video is: http: //youtu.be/mEyrfFwf3rI
    This will embed the video.

    :)

    D'Snowth Well-Known Member

    Ah, but as you can see, your example resulted in the video being embedded in your post twice.
  17. jvcarroll

    jvcarroll Well-Known Member

    It didn't do that yesterday. That's why I said bear with me because it can be tricky. ;)

    You just have to make sure it's the correct page URL:
    http: //www. youtube. com/watch?annotation_id=annotation_320325&feature=iv&src_vid=mEyrfFwf3rI&v=cY5u5nc0UhI
    and not: http: // www. youtube.com/ watch?v=mEyrfFwf3rI&feature=colike

    It's tricky I guess, but it can be done.

    So then where do you find this URL? Because copying the URL address doesn't work
  19. jvcarroll

    jvcarroll Well-Known Member

    Here's a little experiment:

    We know that the [share] button URL embeds no matter what.

    I went directly to YouTube and searched for "Ben Folds Fraggle Video" by typing in the search field. I then clicked on the Nerdist link we've all seen and copy/pasted the URL from the browser. This resulted in creating this text link.

    The problem seems to come from using the URL if you've navigated to the page in any other way than the search field.

    Forgive me for sounding like a n00b, but what is this "Nerdist link" of which you speak?
