    I'm completely unable to post links on youtube in the comments section of videos. I tried posting the original link and it didn't work, so tried a tinyURL shortened link again no luck and then tried a bitly shortened link and no luck. Told me every time there was an error posting then when I removed the link it posted no problem.

    I don't often comment on youtube, maybe a dozen comments at most in my lifetime, do I need to get a certain amount of posts before I can use links or am I just missing something?

    Thanks.

    Of course you're not able to post links, they don't want people spamming comments so they have blocks in place. You need to find a way around it, like what the.spike said.

    I was sure I'd seen other post links. I'll try some other ways.

    Thanks
