Like most people on MLP forums, they put an actual video from youtube in the reply so you can instantly view it. However, when I put the url to the video, it's just a url. Not the actual video that you can watch.


Like this for example: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=qPL3NLsP__k


It's only a url. I want to post the video which allows you to press play and watch it straight away. How can I put on the actual video?

, the reason of why that happens is quite simple.

Here, in MLPForums, Youtube links are instantly recognized when they are posted, but only links from the normal version are recognized this way. Your link comes from the mobile version, which isn't recognized, and thus it won't show up.

How does one fix it? Quite simple, once again. All you have to do is exchange the 'm.' from the beginning for a 'www.', which will allow the link to be recognized, and thus will show up properly:


To exemplify, I will show you the video before and after:




If this solved your issue, please let me know.
