OK this works.
Do a screenshot of the opening frame of your video and save it as a photo.
Copy the plain share link for the video.
Insert the screenshot photo in your text
Highlight the code for the photo and hyperlink it to the share code that you copied.

Example:
Food Sheet pan Ingredient Rectangle Recipe


It's a bit of a work-around but it does work.

It should be as simple as this. (Without using the "Embed Code".)

On YouTube, below the video, Click on "Share". That "Blues in the Link". Click again on that. Choose "Cut".

Come back here. Post whatever words you want to. Say something like (if you want to)

Link is HERE.

Blue the part you want to use as the link. Click on the Brown "Link" button (Second from the right). REMOVE the :http// they have already put in there (Why? Sometimes it will disappear on it's own, sometimes not. ) Click on the space and hit "Paste."

Post your reply and that should do it.

Now I'll try mine and see if it works after all that ….LOL…

EDIT: YEP! Piece of cake!

So! Let's try it on my new "Nitro Fishing Boat" with a Special Option I also purchased.

It kinda "Sound Proofs" the Boat.

Video demonstrating the OPTION is HERE. (Full Screen Is Best)

UP, UP & AWAY!! ....LOL..

Rick

PS: I let a "Friend" try it out at Full Blast to see how it would ride. (Full Screen Again to get the best view) .... LOL ….

Not so sure that was the best thing to do! Wadda You Think?
