Was there a change in embedding YouTube videos?


Recommended Posts

^ what the title says. You used to be able to copy and paste a YouTube link into a post and it would convert the formatting for you, but this no longer works. Like so:


[ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KGzOA6Nqqzk]Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Cave Friend Area Remix - YouTube[/ame]


For some reason the forum just wraps it in standard URL tags.


What I have to do instead is this


[ url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KGzOA6Nqqzk]lalala[ /url]


without the spaces =





Which is a real pain in the bum.


So is this a glitch or was this a change made recently?

...Well, poop. It's working now. Sometimes it doesn't work though and embeds it as a link and the only way to get it to work is by doing the second method. Well, I suppose this thread can stand for a workaround for those times now.

the only times i seem to have a problem with it is if it says https:// instead of http:// :thinking: so next time you have that problem, check for that s and if it's there, just remove it :)


I just noticed that this seems to be the problem... is this just a permanent thing with the feature or can it be fixed
