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
"When your city is French in origin, and your Mayor and Governor are Democrats, and those most affected by this natural disaster are Black, don't expect much help from Bush." -- Left of Y'all (and the link works now too! )
