Due to recent change in Youtube, "upload from youtube URL" feature is currently not supported. 
Sorry for any inconvenience caused by that. 
You are welcome to use "Upload Video" feature to add your video to the website. 

Download from URL will work as long as the URL is a direct video file URL.

Thank you

You should use "upload multiple files" to upload video files

Upload from URL option is working for upload from direct url. You can provide direct url to the location of your video on server and it will be uploaded to Cincopa.

YouTube and Vimeo URL won't work.

I would also need and prefer an upload direct URL for youtube videos! Is it already possible to do so?

I tried to insert a youtube video in form - but it doesn´t work. do I have to use another form of URL from Youtube?

I'm afraid uploading from youtube is not supported by Cincopa. Sorry for the inconvenience.Download from URL will work as long as the URL is a direct video file URL.Instead you can convert youtube videos to mp4 format files, save them to your computer and use Upload Multiple Files method.

If there's anything else we can assist you with please update us.
