    So if you embed this, for example, how does it show up on your forum?

      Video code not working

      As a link.

      When will the video tags be fixed?

      I created a new YouTube bb code

        They're not broken; otherwise, there'd be problems here.

        Try disabling the new BB code you made and use the standard video BB code.

          Video code not working

          The standard bb video code shows up as a link and does not embed the YouTube video.

          My new YouTube bb code is working now but the standard video tags should work.

            What modifications do you currently have installed that are enabled?

              Paste this code into a new post on your forum, and see if it embeds correctly:

              Code:

                  Ok so the actual embedding feature works.

                  Can you please paste this code in and tell me if it works:

                  Code:

                    Yes Mark, that does work. Not sure why my original embed did not work

                      To be honest looking at your original post I'm not really sure exactly what you were trying to embed.

                      I do know however, that occasionally you get the odd YouTube video that simply refuses to embed automatically, in these scenarios I just manually create the full embed URL using one that has embedded successfully earlier...I just edit the post it's in, copy the code, and change the video URL to the new one, that usually works.

                        I've noticed sometimes -- on any forum, including here -- that when I click OK on "Insert Video Clip," it won't insert.

                          I probably had one of those bad videos. But it seems to be fine now.

                          Thanks Mark. Much appreciated!

                            I've found that I also have times where the video just doesn't insert in WYSIWYG Enhanced Editor mode - this also happens with embedding inline images.

                            Switching to "source mode" always works for me though.
