As requested by Cosmic Jumper here is how i got a youtube link to work for me using the iPad. Hopefully it will work for all who try. I found it surprisingly simple. So easy I didn't think it was going to work.
1) open your youtube app and find the desired video.
2) once the video is opened and playing tap screen once
3) icons will pop up in the top right corner
4) select the middle icon (looks like three dots with connecting lines)
5) at the bottom of the list tap "copy link"
6) open silverwing forum and proceed to your post area
7) tap on the youtube icon
8 ) tap once in the "url" box
9) after the typing icon is blinking, hold your finger onto the box until "paste" appears, tap on paste and your done
I have broken this down to 9 steps to make it as easy as i can get it!
Now if i could only get my pictures to transfer that easy. I'll work on that........if i figure that out i will post it here as well.
