Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

Whenever I try to post a YouTube video, it looks fine in Preview. 

However, when I actually submit the post, the Youtube link ends up looking like this:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=$1#errorNo longer available

If I leave the HTTPS:// in the URL prefix, it shows up as a hyperlinked URL in the post.

If remove the "S",  so that it starts with HTTP://  it used to render as an inline video.   It no longer does, instead I get that message in my post that the video is no longer available.

edit: OK, that seemed to work. I used the [url=URL of YouTube video]text description[/url] method.

just copy/paste the YouTube link inside the [url=][/url] tags with a title in text between the tags.

Cats and Dogs Are the Cutest Thieves Compilation 2015

Mootha F....  Previews fine.  Attempt to submit and it replaces my URL with

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=$1#errorNo longer available

Attempt to modify and it changes it back for me.

Just quoting to see if it will leave your inline video alone.

EDIT: Quoting leaves your link intact, but it no longer displays inline.
