Angry Why can't videos be embedded in posts on AFF?

This is one of the few forums where videos cannot be embedded. Maybe when this forum was created in 2004 it was the correct decision at that time. But it is now 2016. Any chance of this ever being changed?

It's not that we don't allow it (I couldn't care either way) but vb 3.8.x doesn't support embedded video. You can, however, embed YouTube video using the yt /yt tags like the one below:



.. the only thing that goes between the tags is the YouTube Video ID.

Cheers

I can also add other media sources by creating additional BB Code tags to suit. Vbulletin does support the movie tag but we have that disabled as it allows malicious code to be embedded.

Video embedding no longer works? Can't get a youtube video into one of my posts earlier today.

Just use the portion of the URL after the "=" in the youtube URL between the [ yt ] [ /yt ] tags.

I just tried inserting a random Youtube video in a test post and it is working perfectly in preview mode.

Are you sure you are just copying and pasting the Youtube link portion AFTER the "=" between the tags ?

Can you post up the actual code you just posted up?

Go into "EDIT" and copy everything into another post. Then put a space between the T and the ].

For example...

[YT ]hv_zJrO_ptk[/YT ]

EDIT: Just found your problem

You are posting this...

[YT ][ URL="https://xyla-quisou/"][COLOR=#0066cc]xyLa-QUisoU[/COLOR ][/URL ][/YT ] - I have put spaces in the tags so you can see what I mean.

Instead of this...

[YT ]xyLa-QUisoU[/YT ] - I have put spaces in the YT tags so you can see what I mean.

On IE I just get a black screen but in chrome it works fine..
I'm not sure if that helps or not..
Mind you it has only done it over the last few days, before that it worked on both..
