Whats wrong with.........
« on: February 29, 2016, 05:34:25 PM »
Whats up with YouTube posts? Is it the link or the site. So many blanks/flash errors showing up.

Not sure exactly the issue you're referring to but I do know that "https://" links aren't supported by the board tags.  Removing the "s" from the "https://" part of the url lets the tags work though.

If this isn't what you are referring to, can you link to an example?

I watched all the vids you posted and brickbats.

Perhaps you have a flash player issue that I seem to get once a week now. I mean, just how many updates can there be until you run out of numbers?!

I tried to post a normal youtube link today and it didn't work.  I had to resort to a normal link to the url.  Has the BB coding changed or is this due to some other cause?  It's no big deal, but I was curious.

I installed a new mod that also supports Vimeo and GIFV. It seems to work much better.

Looks like if you just use the code and not the full URL, then the "&t=3s" part isn't supported by the BB tags (the "&t=3s" tells Youtube to start the video at the 3 second point).

Here is the code I used to test and below it, how the forum displays it. Not how the 2nd one (with the & portion) is showing as not valid.
Code: [Select]
[youtube]Hh9pm9yjmLs[/youtube]
[youtube]Hh9pm9yjmLs&t=3s[/youtube]
[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hh9pm9yjmLs&t=3s[/youtube]

Not a valid youtube URL
Also, I tend to use the "Preview" option to see if I've formatted the tags properly to make things easier on me.

Thanks, smokes, dweez.  I did test and experiment in preview mode and I did try to eliminate the =3s at the end but it was apparently not enough, so without the &t=3s, it works fine.

One small triumph to lighten my day.  Thanks a bunch!

Yes, I believe you did.

I tried all the variations but it didn't like any of them with six's link. I think maybe because it was ultimately linked to youtu.be which might not have been in the code for the old plugin as other links from youtube.com did.

All good now and the vimeo addition should prove useful.
