Bruce, I suppose one way to achieve your aim, if there is no easy way to 
prevent superscript, would be to put your reference in parentheses: (See 
my video at link 1), followed by the normal superscript number for 
footnote anchors. You can still go with the endnotes.

The other thing, and I know this because I am often having to deal with 
long URLs, is to remember to use \hyphenatedurl{}, and you can determine 
separately where the breaks occur if the default is not to your liking.

I know it is not quite what you were looking for, but it would be a 
simple solution and not to distracting.

I think it will make the main text cleaner if I use endnotes rather than include the URL in-line in the text or as a (distracting) footnote. So when the author writes "See my video at <long Youtube URL>" I will print "See my video at link 1". At the back of the book, in an appendix somewhere, I then use \placenotes to display a table of the actual URLs for any readers that want to type them in.

However the order of the book isn't finalised yet so I'd like the numbering to be sequential regardless of whether I move a chapter around later on. This is partly the reason for using \endnote because I can use a reference elsewhere in the text if necessary.
