Super cute video, BTW!

Thanks so much for the tech support.  I actually spent a lot of time doing it wrong! LOL!

Sorry about that. Once you know where to find the embed code on a video, I think you'll find it's a pretty fast cut-and-paste job to this site!

Hi, @Cookie Me This ~ Heidi: I'm deleting this post because the video has been posted improperly. It should appear as more than a link. You either need to upload it directly to the site, or place embed code in the area provided, so the video shows up on this site.

Actually, I grabbed the embed code from your Facebook post and corrected this post for you. Embed code is different than a url. To grab embed code for a video posted to Facebook, (1) go to the video; (2) click on the three-dot icon in the lower right of the video player (see first screen shot below from one of my videos); (3) then select "Embed"; and (4) when you do, a window like in the second screen shot (below) will open up. Grab the embed code and copy/paste it into the "embed code" area on this site. 

Embed code always begins with "<iframe src = ..." and ends with "</iframe>">. Your embed code for this video looked like this:

<iframe src="" width="560" height="302" style="border:none;overflow:hidden" scrolling="no" frameborder="0" allowTransparency="true" allowFullScreen="true"></iframe>

The advantage to posting embed code rather than a url is two-fold: (1) More people will be drawn to your post here as the video shows up directly on this site (not as a link) and (2) you will still be credited for views on the source platform to which you originally uploaded the video (i.e., on Facebook or YouTube).

I actually delete all videos posted as links as a general rule, so please remember this going forward. Thanks.
