Go to youtube video.
Copy paste the link on top of the page.
Click youtube button and paste link into the box.
Cuss a while.
Go back to youtube.
Copy the conveniently highlighted link, click youtube button in reply, paste link, hit preview.
Cuss a load more.
Click the name of the person who posted the youtube video. Search desperately on their site until you find the video. Cope the link location and see if it is any different to any of the ones you already have. If so, copy and paste that into the box.
Cuss till you're blue in the face.
Experiment with all versions of the link you have adding and taking away 's' everywhere you can think of.
Try searching for keywords in the youtube search engine and see if anything different shows up.
Make yourself a nice cup of tea.
Repeat all previous steps several times.
At some point, for no known reason, one of the links will work. Usually.

...yeah....got stuck at the cussing stage!! Was about to move on to the making tea stage when I realized I'd been trying "copy the link" from the video and not the link at the top of the page. Which WORKED!
Sanity (temporarily) saved!
A thousand thanks!

Again, using the permies YouTube button, it still works! (Thanks permies.com dev team for fixing this!!) See:
If you're in the mobile view of permies, and don't have the YouTube button, simply type:
"[youtube]"at the start of the YouTube URL
"[/youtube]" at the end of the YouTube URL
no spaces and no "(quotation)" marks of course, and note the square brackets.
