Posting You Tube links shows multiple screen shots

When I post/embed a You Tube video, it shows up very bizzarro, with 2 or 3 You Tube screens showing.

Anyway to fix this?? Thanks!

Hopefully our tech people aren't off for the long weekend.

Are you sure its a problem with this website or with Youtube? Could you give me an example, e.g. a post where this happens? I'm not the one to fix it, but it might be nice to give the tech people a place to start. Kinda like wanting your Patriot to make the funny noise when it goes to the dealer.

I've noticed that after a video plays, Youtube shows a collage of whatever Youtube's cookies think the poster or viewer might be interested in. I just watched a UFO video posted elsewhere on this site, but I'll bet if I go to Youtube I'll have UFO videos suggested at the end of whatever I might watch. Then, if I post a video of my Jeep, whoever watches it may see UFO videos in their post-video collage.

What I do is use the YouTube tags with only the ID.

For the video here:

It would look like this (minus the added asterisks)


And display like this:

Does that make any sense?
