    I have a question that about something I cannot figure out for the life of me. I want to be able to find and copy the direct URL link to a YouTube video from my iPad or iPhone (assuming they would both be the same).

    I want to be able to copy the URL and paste it into Facebook but I can't figure out how to see the URL since YouTube is ran through an actual app on the iPad/iPhone and not web.

    Anyone?

    You can hit the share button, then copy the link out of the resulting email. Not elegant but I'm not sure if there's an easy way within the app.

    I actually never thought of this, thanks. Every time I hit the share button and it pulled up an email I just closed it thinking "that's not what I want," but I never thought to just copy the URL from that email and paste it. This works for me.
