    {
        var regexMatch = Regex.Match(youTubeVideoUrl, "^[^v]+v=(.{11}).*",
                           RegexOptions.IgnoreCase);
        if (regexMatch.Success)
        {
            return "http://www.youtube.com/v/" + regexMatch.Groups[1].Value +"&hl=en&fs=1";
        }
        return youTubeVideoUrl;
    }

VB Code:
Private Function GetYouTubeVideoID(ByVal youTubeVideoUrl As String) As String
        Dim regexMatch = Regex.Match(youTubeVideoUrl, "^[^v]+v=(.{11}).*", RegexOptions.IgnoreCase)
        If regexMatch.Success Then
            Return "http://www.youtube.com/v/" + regexMatch.Groups(1).Value + "&hl=en&fs=1"
        End If
        Return youTubeVideoUrl
    End Function

protected void btnsubmit_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        try
        {
            string ytFormattedVideoUrl = GetYouTubeVideoID(txturl.Text);
            Tb_Video tb = new Tb_Video();
            tb.Title = txttitle.Text;
            tb.Description = txtdescription.Text;
            tb.URL = ytFormattedVideoUrl;
            db.Tb_Videos.InsertOnSubmit(tb);
            db.SubmitChanges();
            Response.Write("<script>alert('Record Inserted Successfully');</script>");
            BindGrid();
            Clear();
        }
        catch (Exception ex)
        { }
    }
    public void Clear()
    {
        txturl.Text = string.Empty;
        txtdescription.Text = string.Empty;
        txttitle.Text = string.Empty;
    }

VB Code:
Protected Sub btnsubmit_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnsubmit.Click
        Try
            Dim ytFormattedVideoUrl As String = GetYouTubeVideoID(txturl.Text)
            Dim tb As New Tb_Video()
            tb.Title = txttitle.Text
            tb.Description = txtdescription.Text
            tb.URL = ytFormattedVideoUrl
            db.Tb_Videos.InsertOnSubmit(tb)
            db.SubmitChanges()
            Response.Write("<script>alert('Record Inserted Successfully');</script>")
            BindGrid()
            Clear()
        Catch ex As Exception
        End Try
    End Sub
    Public Sub Clear()
        txturl.Text = String.Empty
        txtdescription.Text = String.Empty
        txttitle.Text = String.Empty
    End Sub

Fetch the record from database and display
Create a method to get the record from database table and display in Gridview data control.

C# Code:
protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        if (!IsPostBack)
        {
            BindGrid();
        }
    }

public void BindGrid()
    {
        try
        {
            var bind = from v in db.Tb_Videos
                       select v;
            grdvideo.DataSource = bind;
            grdvideo.DataBind();
        }
        catch (Exception ex)
        {
        }
    }

VB Code:
Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
        If Not IsPostBack Then
            BindGrid()
        End If
    End Sub

Public Sub BindGrid()
        Try
            Dim bind = From v In db.Tb_Videos
            grdvideo.DataSource = bind
            grdvideo.DataBind()
        Catch ex As Exception
        End Try
    End Sub
