How Do Insert a Youtube Video As a Link and Not an Image Into Pages?

I am trying to insert a youtube link into a pages document. I just want the link to appear as a youtube link (https://youtube.com/watch?v=LlXVikDkyTg) – but instead the whole video is appearing. How do I get it just to appear as a link?

I don’t want the video picture to appear. I need to print out the document and printing images wastes ink. I just need the link to appear as text.

    That is a new feature of Pages, the ability to insert a YouTube video. If all you want is a link, then you can just add some text, select it, choose Format, Add Link, Webpage, and enter the URL.

    If you want to simply paste the text of a link, and not have it become a link, or use the link as the link text, then choose Edit, Paste and Match Style instead of Edit, Paste.

    Thanx, I also found that if you go into preferences on pages it gives you the option to uncheck “paste YouTube and Vimeo links as web videos” – I unchecked this and its is now normal.

    I open TextEdit and drag the Link URL into the TextEdit page. It creates a live link not with the HTTP but with the topic/description of the URL. Copy/Paste this live/link, blue, URL topic into your
    ‘Pages document.
