Share YouTube video in Facebook
I discovered by trial and error how to circumvent this. And this one works now; who knows, it won't work in the next Facebook facelift? But until then, on to this very easy method!
As I mentioned earlier, the Facebook share button does not really work as expected because it merely displays the link on Facebook and not the video itself. So what you do first is click 'Share' and you will see YouTube's url shortening service at work.
To the right of this url is a checkbox for 'Long link'. Tick this. The shortened url will then be transformed into the full address for this video. Click inside of this url box and copy this link (Ctrl-C for PC, Cmd-C for Mac).
