1). import link and highlight to copy the text after the '=' equal sign in your link
2). go advanced and click on the youtube icon.
in between the brackets of the resulting text index paste the copied text from after the '=' equal sign. this will be the new link.

if there are more than one equal sign '=' this method will not work.
3). to check and verify that the new link works click preview post and
click the youtube page as per usual.
edit: #1 and #2 sequence must be followed before going to advanced so that the underlined link is not the source of the copying of after the '=' equal sign. if the link is underlined in
'go advanced' you'll need to get a copy that is not underlined, as in the original copied link. getting the link into 'go advanced' will underline the link and copying it from that window will not work. also i highlighted the portion you will need to copy/paste but do not do that, it will not work if you alter the copy in any way.
hope this hasn't been too confusing.
