Hi y'all...could use some help please.
Hi y'all! This is my first time on any sort of tech forum. I've been using my wifi Xoom since they first came out, and I've not been stuck until now. How in the heck to you post a YouTube song on a forum using the Xoom? I've been able to do it on my laptop and desktop, but so far I have failed with the Xoom. Thanks!

if your talking a video, you just click the url/link icon, and paste the youtube code in the thread

Thanks to both of you. I have tried this but could not get it to work....will try again and see what happens.
Well apparently I don't know how to do it at all. So could someone give me step by step directions? Feel free to assume I am clueless. Thanks!
first, you need the youtube link (like you see in post'2, but add 'http://www'), then in post click on the planet w/link icon, long press and paste the youtube link
Thanks, rive. Let's just call me super clueless. When I'm at the copying stage I click on the thing on the upper right hand corner of the Xoom and then press copy URL, right? Then you said to add Home Page but where and how do you do that? Then what is planet w/link icon? And what is long press? Yeah...super clueless is what I am...hugs to you for helping!
the url you get from the youtube video, it should look like the url in post #2 (with http://)
in the box you type responses in (quick reply) there is a smilie face icon, then two blue planet icons with what look like chain links, and a red X over the chainlinks, click this to get url insert popup. tap the url area, then hold finger there until you get paste popup (i.e., longpress)
same thing when you copy page urls in browser, hold finger on url till you get copy menu. its called longpress

You rock, rive!!!!! I finally got it!
Here's a related question....if I want to copy lyrics from a lyrics website and post it on a forum how do I do that? I've never figured out how to highlight more than one word at a time.
