Here are three tips that you can use for converting YouTube to Facebook. Posting a YouTube link will not initiate the video on Facebook, nor is there a means to embed a YouTube video in a Facebook post. If you want the video to play on Facebook, you’ll have to download the video itself and then upload it as a file to Facebook.
1) Posting a Link on Desktop
1.1) Open YouTube in your browser. No need to sign into YouTube unless it’s an age-restricted YouTube video.
1.2) Click the search bar at the top of the YouTube homepage.
1.3) Here you can search for a video by its title.
1.4) Now, select a video you wish to post and open it.
1.5) Click on the SHARE button, below the video player.
1.6) There you’ll see the Facebook icon. Click on it to open Facebook in a new window. Enter your Facebook login information if mentioned, before continuing.
1.7) After logging in, you can add some text along with the video by typing it into the text field above the post. Otherwise, by default, the link of the video will be posted with it.
1.8) At last, Click Post to Facebook. This will post your video’s link to Facebook thereby allowing others to open the video on YouTube via the link.
