How do I attach youtube video to email?
Posted by: spearmint

I want to send a youtube video via email and can only think to post url in text. Most of my friends will not bother to cut and paste or know what is going on.

Any way to open with a click?

Just go to the YouTube video, copy the URL and paste it into your email. It should appear as a clickable link in the recipient's mail. All they need to do is click the link and it will take them to the video.





If you don't stand for something, you'll probably fall for anything.

Depends on the email client. If you type a link in an email to me, it becomes clickable when I read it. OS X Mail. Most of the time.

Easier if you use Apple Mail and Safari
Go to the video and in Safari go to File>Mail Link to this page
Mail will fire up and just put the addresses in.

If they won't bother to click on a link--they are less likely to open an attachment.

If it shows up as a link automatically that would be what I want. Hotmail. I would post it here but it is something from the darkside of the forum.

I usually wrap any url that I type into e-mail with chicken beaks, i.e. <>. Many e-mail programs will be better behaved about long URLs and avoiding line breaks if you do that.

For example:
< http: //www.example.com/>

(without the spaces I added so that the forum wouldn't munge it)

I never click on the "mail this video". To my mind i'm just putting my friends' email out there for spammers.

I just forwarded my other email account just including url and it did not work.

Chicken beaks are what I want? I honestly do not know.
