    TCNina,
    We get quite a few of these issues and the solution is often the same thing:

    1) Switch back to "Visual" view in the editor.
    2) Select the entire youtube link line.
    3) Click on the "Unlink" button of your editor.
    4) Save your post.

    The key here is to always make sure of these requirements. So in general terms, these are the rules:

    - Make sure the url is really on its own line by itself
    - Make sure the url is not an active hyperlink (i.e., it should just be plain text). Otherwise, highlight the url and click the "unlink" button in your editor:
    - Make sure you did not format or align the url in any way. If your url still appears in your actual post instead of a video, highlight it and click the "remove formatting" button (formatting can be invisible sometimes).

    Thanks for using the plugin!
