    Would someone please remind me how to post or embed a video from another site, i.e., YouTube?

    There's a film-strip icon that says 'insert video. Use that. And I think you need to use the full youtube.com URL. The 'share' button on YouTube gives the youtu.be or whatever shortened URL, and the 'insert video' macro doesn't seem to recognize that.

    At least, that's what I usually do. There's probably a simpler way.

    What I discovered is that you need to take out the "S" in the link that is generated when you click on share so it is http instead of https
    If not you just get the link showing up and not the embedded video.
