No, viking, the video url with surrounding tags showed:

Neither one of my youtube videos had an s (as in https) attached. Perhaps because they are older.

I'd read that in a thread in the last couple of weeks and tried it but it didn't work. I haven't seen any working videos in the FT forums at all, so I was unsure on that instructional after-all.

When I created the same tags as you did in the above screen shot, and clicked to Submit Post, all I saw was the headline Ape with AK47 and the rest of the post was blank, no link, no url, no nothing, no display, nada. That's when I went back and wiped out the youtube code and inserted url in place of youtube so it would at least be a visible live link.
