  • [Forum] Posting Youtube Videos - Embedding

    I hesitated asking this earlier as it's only 2 members of mine having this issue, but they continue to complain and I can't seem to figure this one out. User like to post music videos from youtube. Everyone does the same thing, click on "share" under the video and then click "embed", then all you do is copy/paste the code into a post. It works for nearly everyone, except these 2. The box loads, but inside it says the video is not found. I went through it step by step with them to ensure they were doing it right, and the same as others, and it seems they are. I don't want code cut off, but here's a picture of what I see. After their post and the video doesn't load, I edit the post and go advanced. I did the same with one of my working videos. This picture shows the difference in the code:



    I tried checking/unchecking all the various boxes on youtube, but can't reproduce the problem. Anyone seen this before?

    Thanks!

    You can't copy and paste embed code unless you allow HTML, which can be a security risk.

    They need to click the filmstrip icon in the menu bar and insert the Youtube.com or Youtu.be URL into the resulting dialog box.

      Just installed 4.2 and I am not seeing this icon anywhere or how to get it. I do I turn it on?

        It's not activated by default. In your Forum manager, forum by forum, you can activate the VIDEO code.
