    I have never managed to get the embedding of YouTube to work here.
    Just stick with a link.
    Embedding will work in the new version to come.

    Andrew

    I have a few - mainly outdoor lanterns (but I do have one table lamp I've not fiddled with yet). Happy to discuss any time. Send me a message if you wish.
