Post How to get a movie URL?
Hi there,

How is it possible to get the URL of a movie that's embedded in a post?

I want to send the link of a video to a friend directly - so he can view the movie and 'Like' it on YouTube or Vimeo etc.

Anyone know how? I'm on a mobile device...

There should be a logo for that on the video in the lower left that gets you to the youtube page directly. From there you should be able to copy the link for your friend. I think. Maybe.

I get the URL by inspecting the page source in Firefox, which would be quite difficult using a touchscreen.

It's also quite easy to get the URL by clicking on the Quote button on a post that has a video. The URL will be there in plain text. You can then just cancel once you've copied it. This works on any computer, whether it's mobile, laptop, or desktop.

Thanks everyone, helpful. I can use the Quote method which works nicely on the phone
