What do you mean? What browser do you use?

Youtube vids or DTV vids?

It's a youtube video in this instance. I guess I use Google - not sure to be honest. Computers always leave me somewhat befuddled.

Well, using Google Chrome. And still nothing. Very odd. I press the youtube button on "postreply" and then in youtube the share button. Go to look at the preview and nothing shows up. I don't understand.

Your doing it wrong man!

For this ^^^ the code would be oTELRr0jn90 in-between = and & copy and paste code and then voila.

TRY!

If your talking about sharing to Facebook then it works for me... (don't think you are though are you?)
