Thanks for the info! However, I find that the above procedure is only 75% of what you need to do. Following the above, each time you "favorite" a video, it will override the one you wanted to post. Create a playlist, add the one video to the playlist, and then select the playlist as the source for the player. You'll need a playlist for each video, but it only takes a few seconds.
