Title: Posting Youtube video's
Post by: Janzl on September 28, 2014, 11:57:21 PM
Maybe some of you have noticed that the youtube button, when you are posting a message, doesn't work anymore.
I am unfortunately not able to fix this, believe me, I have tried, but the offered solutions aren't working.

However, there is a simple way to work around this.

The Youtube links nowadays start with https://. The S behind http is the reason that the links are not working anymore. When you remove the S the Youtube links still works and the Youtube button also works again.

Is this clear to all? If not, let me know :-)

Well, another glitch has surfaced. I have no clue where it comes from. I can't find any info on it, but suddenly embedded youtube movies now only show up as a black narrow vertical beam.

The only solution I have, for now, is deactivating the YouTube embed option. Fortunately this converts the embed code to YouTube links so you can still watch the vids.

I hope that, after I have upgraded the forum's software we  will have the embed function back.
