YouTube videos not always working?
« on: December 02, 2023, 05:20:17 PM »
If you place a youtube reference as a simple url within your post, it should work:
(copied from address bar on browser)...  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UWi29bMVSZE

Alternatively, right-click on the video and select "Copy video URL"
Then paste this URL into your post... https://youtu.be/UWi29bMVSZE

Unfortunately, if you try to use the forum's YouTube "embed" icon (shown above), it may not work!
Code: [Select]
this embeds:    [youtube]UWi29bMVSZE[/youtube]    within your post
This is a problem within the forum's add-on module that we historically used for YouTube videos
This should get fixed with our next forum upgrade
Meanwhile, simply enter the url - don't use the forum's YouTube embed button

The newer YouTube add-on modules have made many improvements, so stay tuned...

I have found another way to bypass the current limitation and have our videos embedding again

1. go to youtube, tab share and select the embedd option
2. in here, simply paste the <iframe> embed from above between [Html] tags and it should work fine, just like here

And I was just thinking, "wow, it works now" after seeing your post ;)

Thx for the tip, will do it that way in my next posts.

hmmm... I tried it in my last progress post but the html-tag gets removed and it just shows the iframe text :-/

testing it here again:
<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/rG_UVYoAYI4?si=kfBwLj_DKZpe21k-" title="YouTube video player" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture; web-share" allowfullscreen></iframe>

I guess it could be because of your admin-status, @Red Dog ... I can't select an "HTML" tag in the icon list above, when I insert it manually, it gets deleted.

In this answer I only see code. Not a usable link. In your other answer (in your pit building thread) I can see the link and the Youtube image. Works without a problem.

In my WIP I just posted the thumbnail image and the direct link to the video ;-)
Tested with Firefox and Chromium.. I think, only admins are allowed to post HTML-tags.
Would be too big a security risk to let anyone post code from across the web...

Well I checked in the admin section of the forum and as far as I can see, there's no restrictions at all for HTML codes
It's well enabled and everyone should be able to use it

Usually me too, but in this case the HTML-tag get's deleted by the forumsoftware.

I just meant, if _you_ have the icon for the HTML tag, you definitely get more possibilities than me.

That's the text I post right below the code-block.
Code: [Select]
[html]<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/rG_UVYoAYI4?si=qdOWiCqS7PGAvuEr" title="YouTube video player" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture; web-share" allowfullscreen></iframe>[/html]

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/rG_UVYoAYI4?si=qdOWiCqS7PGAvuEr" title="YouTube video player" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture; web-share" allowfullscreen></iframe>

When I edit the post again, the html-tags are gone and the line looks like this:
Code: [Select]
<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/rG_UVYoAYI4?si=qdOWiCqS7PGAvuEr" title="YouTube video player" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture; web-share" allowfullscreen></iframe>
