    By the way, is there a code for linking a video AS a video, instead of just a link?


Yes and no. You copy paste the unique code part of the youtube URL into this html code - then remove the "asterisk" put there so you can see the example:

[*youtube=URL]

For example:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IhktTPgfxBY
The unique URL code is "IhktTPgfxBY" and entering it and removing "*" comes out like this:



Was actually going to edit in the link for you but unfortunately, a current code-kink is that it does not work for hyphens (but oddly does for underscores). Your example has a hyphen which won't be recognized. See:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w-QhdzQo66o
becomes:
[youtube=w-QhdzQo66o]

So, AFAIK, you'd have to just post your particular link (as you did) to keep it quick and simple (maybe even add the .jpg from youtube as the visual). And FYI, there is probably a limit to how many Youtube code-links can/should be used in each post. Hope that helps.
