Default Embedded videos

The -YOUTUBE- button on this board is rather annoying for people who want to watch the videos posted because neither Opera nor Firefox support this option (I have to klick "reply" everytime I want to see a vid to make the link appear)

up and away,
thanks for your feedback!
Maybe you have a suggestion to improve things?
I know there are some problems with Opera, but I can't imagine any way to solve the situation without removing the embedding.

About FFox, I can grant you the embedding works perfectly with FF. If you are experiencing difficulties, maybe you can consider to update your version or to check your settings.

Pls don't hesitate to let me know.
Luke

I've got the same issue as "up and away" so I don't think its related to his/her browser settings.

I'm using IE7 (with the latest security updates) and Google Chrome, both are unable to view the youtube videos. To view the content I need to press the "quote" button, then copy the youtube URL, then visit youtube to see the content.

matt... please forgive me if I'm in a quite way rude. But you don't have any problem. As well I don't have.

The reason is very easy: the author of the post with the embedded videos filled in data *uncorrectly*.

The use of the BBCODE "youtube" implies the user has only to fill in the code of the video and not the full URL. If the users fill in the full URL, you won't have any chance to see the embedded videos.
Please have a look here:

CORRECT:
HTML Code:
[youtube]8hxW_rq8hYQ[/youtube]

CLICK "I AGREE" TO WATCH THE VIDEO

No media files are hosted on these forums. By clicking the link below you agree to view content from an external website. We can not be held responsible for the suitability or legality of this material. If the video does not play, wait a minute or try again later.
I AGREE



WRONG:
HTML Code:
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8hxW_rq8hYQ[/youtube]

CLICK "I AGREE" TO WATCH THE VIDEO

I AGREE


Hope to have clarified the point.
Pls don't hesitate to ask if you have any doubt.
Luke

btw, the matter was also discussed here:

=)

Finally, in the case some users used wrongly the youtube tag, we kindly ask you to RBP the post to moderators so that they can fix asap any problem.
