Uploading video clips from YouTube. I know others have noted that to do this.
After uploaded to YouTube (YT) one now only needs simply to click on YT share icon, then "Copy Link" and then click on "Paste" into your Tapatalk forum text field. The YT link will appear as a string of txt UNTIL one 'submits' one's topic or reply in the forum, then it will then automatically display as a YT video clip.
NB If using a camera/phone with resolution and aspect ratio settings that are not compatible with YouTube your video will appear as a 'letterbox' with broad vertical or horizontal black stripes around your video clip - but this link explains the acceptable YT settings to eliminate the 'letterbox' effect. https://support.google.com/youtube/answ ... 2?hl=en-GB  
Iphone users can adjust video settings on their device by going to  'Settngs'  then 'Photos & Camera' and ticking the appropriate field.
Hope this helps - the letterbox effect had me baffled for ages until I found the above info.
Cheers
