I’d prefer to have the youtube logo as a button to link to the video. When
I follow these instructions, yes, I get the video, but it’s like its own
separate part of the page. Surely there’s an easy way to accomplish this…

Once you can embed a video, say a one hour one, how can you split it up
into smaller ones of say 15 minutes each?

Seems easy enough. But is it just me? Or does it not show the video like
this in Preview? It looks so un-pro having a link address there. :(
