The problem with links is that they can take you anywhere .. even malicious sites if you're not on a computer and hover over the link to see the actual path.. that's why they are discouraged here.. especially since it just recently happened to a fellow member - embedding the video shows the actual video player that way a person can just click play and not be taken to a different site.

Also.. for those newer - the whole forum changed and most of those "How to" links are for the old forum format
