What does the insert video button do?  I'll still keep playing with this thing.  If I can at least get a clickable link that'll be okay.  I can upload to the videos section, but i guess that's something entirely different.  They said I had to wait for mod approval before they will be posted.

The insert video button would be used if you were wanting to display a video you have on your hard drive here in the forum (meaning you are actually uploading it here, not embedding it or linking to it). It is almost never used, as most of us are only embedding videos from YouTube, Vimeo, Daily Motion, etc. 

The Videos section is a place where you can upload videos or submit YouTube videos to be included in a gallery of sorts.

To make a clickable link, highlight the text that you want to be a link, click the "Insert Hyperlink" button (a few left from the "Embed Video" button) and paste the URL.

A workaround that you might be able to do, is to keep the embed code handy in a note or a text file, or simply remember the syntax. (All you need is the iframe attribute, and tell the source in quotes.)

It looks like this:

<iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/Vihnr5dM3PM" </iframe>

If you paste that in the "Embed Your Video code" field, it will work. Put in the youtube link of your choice. It has to be that format, though. Links with the shortened "youtu.be" domain won't do it.
