Windows Central Question

Okay, I'm using a Nokia Lumia 520 and I CANNOT copy YouTube links. It doesn't show the full link and I have researched and researched but no one has asked this problem. I can't copy a YouTube URL because it simply doesn't show the full thing. Please help me, I would really enjoy being able to copy YouTube links.

On the mobile youtube site, find the video you are looking for, play it (or at least open the page), hold the video link until a circle pops up. Tap the circle and that will allow you to copy the link.
In the text field, there will be an option to paste from the clipboard (with a circle symbol with a clipboard). Tap it, and you'll be able to paste your link.
