Right. You know this and I know this but do we need to explain that to 
the poor end user that want just to display the youtube movie?

The url that works (http://www.youtube.com/v/mnBnwx5Qr5A) is not 
available without manually cut this from long html embeded code.

For end user the easiest way is just to insert the url with "watch?" 
which he can copy from browser address bar or just copy from URL field 
next to movie.

This is all I want to say: let it be as usable for end user as it can be.
