How do I share a YouTube video with another YouTube user?

I don't mean sharing via email. I mean sharing on the site itself, with a specific user name. Thanks.

When you click the share link you should have the option to share via username as well as email address.

  1. From the video you wish to share click the 'Share' link
  2. At the bottom of the box 'Send this video from YouTube'
  3. Enter username and optional message
  4. Send
