    I want to give my students a list of youtube videos
    it will be awkward to have them actually display in the post as there's 10 of them.
    How can I show a list of links without each video embedding?

    You can disable auto-embed (at least temporarily):

    Admin CP -> Home -> Options -> Messages -> Auto-Embed Media Links

    You could use the 'Plain' BBcode but that won't give you clickable links, only the URL.

    Another option could be to use a link shorting service.

    Wouldnt that make them embed when I enable it again?

    Thanks sound like possibilities to investigate.

    No. The auto-embed action is only at the time of posting.

    you can also do this...

    • paste a link in the editor so it looks like this....

    • delete the http:// part at the beginning

    • highlight that whole thing...

    • and then click the insert/edit link button in the editor...
    insert.edit link.png

    • ..paste the full link again in the popup
    higlighted and paste linkl.png

    it sounds like a lot but once you have done it once or twice it is really quick
