Get the address to the video , and copy the part after v= only 1mxaA-bJ35s

Click on the youtube logo in the menu above as you are posting that will give you this


Now paste the part after v= from above 1mxaA-bJ35s in between the youtube tags and you'll see this


Now your post will show the video :)

If the address has more after the code, for instance, then only copy the part between the v= and the & symbol
