Likewise if using a Mac then it's not necessary to bother about clicking on the 'Share' option, just place the cursor on the video playing and clicking on that will bring up an option box with 'Copy video URL'.

Alternatively, and if you don't wish to show the video 'cover' itself then just copy and paste the URL from your browser as below, for example:

Just for an unaware 'southerner', what's one of those OGF?

Aside from that it's very easy to post a YouTube video, honestly it's no problem at all. Another poster on here told me once, a few times doing that using the 'Preview Post' to check and get it right and now I manage without even thinking about it.

Edited to add: I've just noticed the subject of the video so now I realise what a 'mouser' is, not that I didn't anyway before seeing the video! It's just a little early in the day for me!
