OK I just now posted a test video, a YT video called  Clyde the Limberjack.

It worked fine for me.  As I wrote in the thread I linked to below, I pasted in the full browser URL link when adding the video. I did NOT use the "share" link that Youtube provides when you click on 'share' on your youtube video's page.  Are you guys doing this?

Macy's link that she posted in the first post of this thread looks like the Youtube-provided "share" link (it has a question mark in the middle of the link, but no "watch?" in the middle of the link... as my full browser link has.)

To add a youtube video, you have to copy and paste in the full URL address of the video that's in the window at the top of your web browser.

Please do that and tell me if it works. It just worked fine for me.  Do NOT use the youtube "Share" button link.

Thanks for any further details.

Yes but are you following both the suggestions in the thread that I just linked to?
It's hard for me to 'guess' what exactly you are doing.  Instead of posting a general link to your YT video here in this discussion, can you please copy/paste here the exact thing that you are putting in the site field that is resulting in your getting the error message?
