    I will give this a shot:

    Mimi, you need two open windows for this.

    The first window is Basenotes - Your composing box. The cursor should be blinking at the spot where you wish to put the video.

    The second window is www.youtube.com and you select the video you wish to bring in. Listen to the video. At any time during the listening, you can start importing.

    The URL of that video is showing at the URL line. Highlight that whole line, in blue. Stay there and right click. Pick Copy.

    Minimize the Youtube window, and

    Go back to your first window, Basenotes composing box. The cursor should be blinking where you want to insert. On the top bar of the composing box, next to the little tree is a rectangular symbol ("insert video symbol"). Click on that.

    Into the line URL field, you right click, and pick Paste. Click OK.

    ***********

    Good luck. Please try this out, right here, and we shall see whether this works.

    1. Copy and paste the URL of the YouTube video onto your post.
    2. Just in front of the URL, put: [ video ] (minus the spaces)
    3. Just after the URL, put: [ /video ] (again, minus the spaces)

    The video should show up.

    Tried following your instructions 30 Roses, it didn't work for me. I must have made a mistake.

    I tried Ursula's version too and it told me I had an invalid file. I guess both Mimi and I need help.

    Still won't work. I used to know to do them, my son showed me how. I'm obviously doing something wrong.

    Kiliwia,

    I used the URL of the actual YouTube page-- not the embed URL.
    The actual URL is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IJ6M0uvIG38
    (If you click on it, it will take you to the YouTube page.)

    So I put the [ video ] and [ /video ] ahead of it and after it (removing the spaces), like this:


    [ video ]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IJ6M0uvIG38[ /video ] **(but remove the spaces at the brackets)

    Here, I only get the description. I will try one from YouTube directly, again.

    Another way is to use the toolbar for the reply box to do the very same thing.

    1. Click on the icon of the bit of film in the toolbar, located just to the left of the quotation balloon.

    2. That opens a little window that prompts you to copy and paste the URL of your YouTube video page into the field. When you click OK, it will post in the reply box the very same thing I described: the URL of the YouTube page with [ video ] before it and [ /video ] after it (without the spaces. I can't type it with the spaces or it won't show up.)

    Mimi is too cute. Lol, you're not an idiot, you just didn't know. Lol. Sometimes I can't post picture right, so, just how it is I guess, lol. Now you can start partying and boogeying it up on the Song of the Day thread.

    Mimi, you're most welcome. I am glad it worked for you. When I first learned it, I then snowed over many topics with musical contributions and links and images, just could not get enough of it. We are all "would-be journalists" - those forces just have to be released.

    Meanwhile, some things never change. Lease is up for renewal and the increase is fixed for two years. So, in that spirit, here is another song ...
