Hi henryboswell_17

I do understand your frustration at the problem and have just responded to your email too.

As I mentioned, make sure that you are pasting the YouTube URL into the field on the YouTube Widget and not the embed or iFrame codes.

If it does not help, please share one of the links you would like to add to your site and we can investigate the problem in more detail.

I had this problem. After you put your URL in and save it shows on ur site as the yola "how to" vid. save the page anyway then refresh and it should come up as ur vid.

Hope it works for u

I had this problem also, and did what Matt said in the past and it worked, but today it wouldn't work so I was back in help trying to figure out how to load my latest video. I found if under the share tab in youtube you click "show options" then in those options check the box for "long link". it will come up with a different longer link in the link box, if you copy and paste this longer link it seems to work right.

Hi Travis,
Yes! You will want to paste the full URL link to your YouTube video. Grabbing the link directly from the address bar is a good way to ensure that you have the proper link.
