    Why can't I get the YouTube button to work on this website?

    What you want is to highlight the unique, 11-character string which I show as bold in your link and then click the YOUTUBE button. You don't need anything other than this identifier string.

    The normally formed youtube link is:
    Even if there's a bunch of characters in the URL string (see attached picture), just grab the 11-character string BEFORE the "&" character. It's never part of the link and it marks the end of the video identifier.

    Thank you tomas. It works just like you said. My mistake was to copy the entire http address. That doesn't work. :(
