I feel such a Wally for asking this, but I wonder if anyone knows how to post Live YouTube links using Google Chrome, because at the moment, if I copy and paste a link from YouTube, they all look like the dead Wally link below. Confused

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=OLAK5uy_mCSoEsdBxrDUaIX4QMNWR-LnAc1EeBBrM

I've been using Internet Explorer 9 up to now to post all of my YouTube links, like the Live Wally link below. Smile

I did the above using the Insert Hyperlink function, seems to work ok, although in the preview it said "YouTube refuses to connect".
I know some people are having problems with Chrome in general so maybe just stick to Edge?

Until recently, I had been using Chrome, but I felt it was slowing my PC down, so took it off. The problem I had was like your link above, I could post a live link, but couldn't edit it to give it proper meaning; as soon as I started deleting some of the text, I lost the link? I never worked out how to correct this. At least with Edge, not only can I post a live link in straight away, but it comes up with a rudimentary description of what I'm posting. If I want to take a word out, I can backspace and not lose the link... Thumbs Up

Thanks, but where do I find the Insert Hyperlink function? Confused

No, I know how to behave in the restaurant now, I don't tear at the meat with my hands. If I've become a man of the world somehow, that's not necessarily to say I'm a worldly man.

Okay, thanks. I never realised the hyperlink function was right there in front of my eyes all the time. Geek
 
I'll try it now with my Wally album link.....
 
 
Hey, it works! Thumbs Up

 
That'll save me having to use Internet Explorer 9 all the time, which is painfully slow compared to Google Chrome.

^ Oh deary me! This isn't going well at all.  I just tried clicking on the two hyper-links above and it said "This site can't be reached" in both cases. Maybe I should go back to using Internet Explorer 9. At least it was reliable, even if it's a little slow, like me. Confused

^ When you paste the link address into the address box, you have to delete the "http://" or "https://" that is at the start of the link address and adjust the drop-down box accordingly.

^ That's great! My Nightwish link actually works this time. Thanks for everyone's help. It also means I can use my super-fast new laptop for posting links from now on instead of this cranky 16-year-old Acer Aspire laptop that I'm using now. Thumbs Up

Yes, don't forget it's a 16-year-old laptop, which comes complete with an antique browser. Tongue

Paul that old Acer laptop must be running Windows XP. Mate, that's probably a bit risky using it online.

No, it's bang up to date with Windows 7 (invites more sarcasm). Big smile

If it means anything, I still have a 13-year old PC. It has Windows 10, so I'm 3 years and 1 operating system ahead of you. Tongue
