Adding a Youtube video as a reference.
Having trouble adding a Youtube video as a reference. According to the guide found on Wikipedia of how to add one, it still won't work?
I believe it is the Reference name that is the problem, and what the error says is causing it not to be added.
Could it be something else not allowing it to be used as a reference?

- This doesn't address your technical concerns, but there is consensus that YouTube is not a generally reliable source, unless it's a reliable source which has a channel on YouTube (for instance, the CNN YouTube channel.) Catrìona (talk) 00:26, 13 August 2018 (UTC)

The video is of a official song and has been given permission to use by the owner, along with the same song as an earlier version with a different background singer.

I have read the whole HELP page, but I keep getting this error only: Cite error: A list-defined reference named "Youtube|qgz9rXS8kTQ" is not used in the content (see the help page).
What am I adding wrong here, how is the name correctly added?

- You could try making a new section called "External links" and adding it there, minus the <ref> tags. Catrìona (talk) 01:38, 13 August 2018 (UTC)
Probably a better idea thanks for the help.
