Basically, you use the following format to create links:

” text ” : http://www.fluther.com/

Once the spaces are removed, it turns into this:

text

Also, please note that you cannot use link formatting in the title of a question, but only in the details or answers.

You can also just copy the URL of the picture/video and post it directly in the answer box.

Finally, some links have unusual characters in them that the parsing engine in the Fluther back end misinterprets as the end of the link, so what comes out in your post doesn’t work as a link. You can always copy the long, problematic link into http://tinyurl.com/ and use the shortened link it produces as described above.
