I might have found the issue Michi:

make sure you use NON CAPITALS for the html code
If you do this
[HTML] or [Html] it won't work
but if you do
[html]
it does

Seems it's all a case sensitive issue

As I understand it, it all depends on how the parser interprets the alphanumeric commands within the brackets

Most commands will use a beginning tag [xxxx] and ending tag [/xxxx] -although the end tag is not always necessary

Code: [Select]
For example, 
[b] = start BOLD
[/b] = end BOLD

or

[html]HTML CODE HERE[/html]
The parser interpreter looks for specific alphanumeric keywords within the tag brackets.
Generally, you should use lower case characters within bracket commands.

Sorry this has become so cumbersome to add videos.
I am still planning a major software upgrade with better support for videos soon.

Sadly that doesn't work, either. I tried all combinations in my earlier attempts.

Last test:
<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/rG_UVYoAYI4?si=k_0LpPTeZM3AHB7W" title="YouTube video player" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture; web-share" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Edit: tried only lower letters, didn't work now.

No worries, I'll just post the link with a thumbnail...

Edit: One last test with a differen browser (firefox).

Edit2: nope, [ html ] and [/ html ] gets removed (I have to write the spaces, otherwise it's even removed in the text here.)
