DailyMotion; simplest way to make a direct link to your video:

1) Copy video URL
2) Paste as separate line in your post  :)

Every video that I click on YouTube now has a url that is https://youtu.be/and so on.I copied a few different links and they all begin with youtu.be.There is no /v/ in the url.I tried a few edits in the URl but it is always displaying the related videos now.
Anyone else experiencing this?
I wish it was the way it used to be where you could open the video in a new window and just copy the link from there.

Mod edit: yes, I remember when all you had to do was copy/paste the URL from the video pop-out window too. I don't know if it's related to what you're witnessing re: URL formatting at Youtube, but for the past few days, when copy/pasting Youtube links into Dirpy for download, they don't work at all, so perhaps Youtube has made some sort of change. -Pal

Other mod edit: if you copy the address from your browser's URL field, it should still be in a format like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1BYc9PqMTcU&spfreload=10 (or if you're using a mobile device, https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=1BYc9PqMTcU&spfreload=10). I only have a problem if I try to copy it via the Share link. –gonZo

Hmmm... my premature senility must be rearing its ugly head again. There's nothing in your average Youtube link before http, nor is there any rel=0 anymore. So, could my colleague gonZo or someone equally savvy please reiterate/repeat whatever's the best/easiest technique for posting a Youtube video WITHOUT the related/up next stuff on the right side of the page for how YT formats their URLs CURRENTLY? Thanks! :)

https://www.youtube.com/v/S6Ec43f1xdU&rel=0

(the "&rel=0" is still necessary because it prevents youtube from displaying related vids after the linked video ends)

Pal testing:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Doxg9l7IuZc ...no wonder I don't get it. The initial instructions say to "remove all text after rel=0" but that implies there's gonna be a rel=0 in the URL. Which there's not. That link above I just pasted... that's the regular YT link to the regular page display... no way I can remove text after rel=0 since none exists. If I try to ADD "&rel=0" like your example above, it still displays the whole page.

SO, the instructions SHOULD NOW SAY:

Take the original link and ADD "v/" immediately after "www.youtube.com/" and also ADD "&rel=0" to the end of the URL. I'm bolding/sizing this instruction so I can find it again since I know I won't remember. :) -Pal

Actually, take the original URL and replace /watch?v= with /v/ and then append &rel=0

And if your URL is via the "share" button and looks like this:

Quote
http://youtu.be/something

change it to this:
Quote
http://youtube.com/v/something&rel=0

I don't know what's happening with YouTube, or why the URLs behave differently in different browsers.  But I found what I hope is a solution.

This format no longer works:
http://youtube.com/v/VIDEO_ID

This format does work:
http://youtube.com/embed/VIDEO_ID

...However, adding &rel=0 to the end of the URL breaks it, apparently.

Welcome to the internet where elitism, hypocrisy, and sycophancy know no bounds.

Most "popular" forum users are nothing more than prolific trolls that are well connected.

Note:  I don't do debates and I don't respond to argumentative little shits who swear black is white just to bait me.

Bumping this from six years ago, for an update:

Here are the links to a video's thumbnails and default image.     

Thumbnails.  There are 3 different ones.  "default" and "2" are the same:   
Code: [Select]
http://img.youtube.com/vi/<insert-youtube-video-id-here>/default.jpg
http://img.youtube.com/vi/<insert-youtube-video-id-here>/1.jpg
http://img.youtube.com/vi/<insert-youtube-video-id-here>/2.jpg
http://img.youtube.com/vi/<insert-youtube-video-id-here>/3.jpg


Default image.  "0" and "hqdefault" are the same:
Code: [Select]
http://img.youtube.com/vi/<insert-youtube-video-id-here>/0.jpg
http://img.youtube.com/vi/<insert-youtube-video-id-here>/mqdefault.jpg
http://img.youtube.com/vi/<insert-youtube-video-id-here>/hqdefault.jpg
http://img.youtube.com/vi/<insert-youtube-video-id-here>/maxresdefault.jpg

However, hotlinking any of those using the img tag still produces a small thumbnail and not the bigger image.


Here's how to get bigger size thumbnails.

Code: [Select]
http://img.youtube.com/vi/<video-id>/<resolution><image>.jpg
where:
<resolution>
- lowest resolution
sd - Standard Definition
mq - Medium Quality
hq - High Quality
maxres - MAXimum RESolution

<image>
default - Default image (1, 2, 3 shot from video, or custom uploaded)
1 - First shot from video
2 - Second shot from video
3 - Third shot from video

So to get the third thumbnail in the highest resolution:

Code: [Select]
http://img.youtube.com/vi/<video-id>/maxres3.jpg
So using this YouTube video of Leanne Crow as an example, here's the code to produce the second thumbnail in high quality:

Code: [Select]
http://img.youtube.com/vi/tJr-jbRVeRQ/hq2.jpg
And here is the result:
