Yes I’m using an Apple iPhone, that will be the difference. It will still work though. If you press the arrow icon on the video it will play a Britney Spears song.

So, first you type https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=

Then you pick a video

But I'm not seeing the thumbnail. Could be it's an Apple thing.

I've been told that an iPad is much more convenient than my Amazon Fire tablet.
It just costs 3X as much!

It’s an iPhone 11. I had a iPhone 6 for years and was determined to use it even when it became too outdated for apps but alas, it suddenly died on me.

When you go to type a message to me, do you see the link icon next to the photo icon? You press that first and it should bring up a box that says ‘URL’ and then ‘TEXT.’ You paste the URL link into the top one and in the text box, you name the URL.

A URL link is basically the address for a webpage, it starts ‘http:// ‘ instead of typing it all out, you can just highlight and copy and paste it.

Here is a photo of the box that appears after you click the link icon —

There is no link icon. I just post "reply". Now that I replied to your post, the thumbnail box has disappeared, and I can pull it up with the ATTACH feature.

Yes once you press reply and start to type, can you see the link icon now?
Did you type in the name of the song and the artists? What URL did you use?
Yep that’s right, the text will become the title of your URL link. If I am reading something online, like an article, or watching a YouTube video, and I want to share it, I highlight and press copy over the web address (http://) and paste it into this link box. I can then name the link whatever I want in the text box.

I got the following instructions online for how to copy text on an Amazon fire tablet. Apparently the Amazon fire tablet does have a ‘unique interface.’ —

4. Copy and paste. This function is a bit confusing on the Fire. To copy text, tap and hold a word, then drag the markers to highlight the text you want to copy. Then, tap the highlighted text to add it to the clipboard. To paste, long-press a text field and select "Paste." ‘

Had a dream I was hanging out with Vince Mcmahon for the second time this year. Don't even watch TV, so I'm unsure why the heck that happened. Kind of funny though.

When the gross fat lazy 'contract mail carrier' walks across my yard to get from neighbor to neighbor house, and you go out and say - hey, dude? you got mail for me or not - looking at an empty mail box - and he says no - and you say - then stay the fuk outta my yard, and while you're at it, wash your t-shirt or put on a uniform. Garbage delivering nothing from the gov't today...except wear and tear, lol. YouTube link
