All Publer needs from you, is the link to a YouTube video.
YouTube video URLs look like these:

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t50wnuPNidw
  • https://youtu.be/t50wnuPNidw

 

There are several ways you can find the URL of a YouTube Video and they're pretty simply.

 

  1. Assuming you're watching the Video on YouTube, simply copy the URL from your browser's address bar as shown below. That's the Video URL Publer needs from you.
     
  2. Click the Share button on YouTube. Copy the URL that displays below the Social Share buttons as shown below. That's the Video URL Publer needs from you.
     
  3. Right click on the video and click "Copy Video URL" as shown below. That's the Video URL Publer needs from you.
     

Now you can go back to Publer, paste the URL you just copied into the Video URL field

 

and finish up your video post. You can either Schedule/Post the HD (High Definition) version or the HQ (High Quality) version of the Video. HQ videos are faster to process. Make sure that you're not violating any copyrights or Facebook Policies.
