YouTube Embed

Hey folks,

Thanks to amcf18 mentioning that video embedding was having an issue. YouTube had made some changes to how their address showed up and the site needed to have that updated.

YouTube videos can now be automatically embedded in your post simply by copy/pasting the web address.


Thanks,
- Goose

Hey folks,

It looks like Chrome, Edge, and IE had an update and it is messing with YouTube embedded videos. Flash is being phased out which is affecting the videos.

We are currently working on a fix for this to see if there is a way around it.

FireFox seems to have not been hit with the issue yet (as they phased out Flash a while ago) and we hope to find a resolution soon.

We will keep you updated as the information becomes available.

Thanks,
- JB

Hey folks,

A fix was implemented and the videos are working again.

If your YouTube videos are still coming up as blank or with a black rectangle on the video, you can fix it by either "Edit" your own post and saving it (without changing anything) or the mod's will have to do it.

This is due to the fact that posted videos are no longer automatically affected by the code, and need to be forced by Edit > Save.

We will continue to monitor any changes from Chrome, Edge and IE and update the coding in response to it.

Thanks!
