Alan...Please excuse my off-topic intrusion, but I thought you might be willing to help me out.

Could you please tell me how you were able to place those videos into your posts? I have tried to put some of my YT videos into a post and all that shows up is a big black screen.
Good'ay Jim,
I expect there are several ways to do this, but this is what I do:
  • in your web browser, bring up the YouTube video you wish to embed in the HMEMF post
  • click on the Share icon visible in the area below the video
    - you will then see a popup window titled "Share in a post"
  • click on the Copy icon
    - this will write the shortcut URL to your clipboard
  • within your HMEMF post, click control + v to paste the link into your post (Linux / Windows)
  • alternatively, right click on the mouse (Linux / Windows) and select paste
  • click on Preview icon (top RHS) to check that you will get what you want.
NB: I don't know whether this is the same for Apple ios users.

Hope this works for you.
