Many of you, including me, have been trying to include embed videos on the posts, without success despite the appropriate function being there.
Older videos work fine, many of the embed videos here are actually a bit old. And now I found out why the function wasn't working properly:
Recently Youtube has been using https, instead of http. The former won't work on the forum's embed function.
And there's one more thing: a function added on the URL after the site and then video's identification, &feature=youtu.be. I'll show an example:
vs older URL:
Those two differences are enough for the youtube function to not incorporate the video, like this:
The link used to incorporate videos with the forum's Youtube BB code is the one you see at the address bar, not the sharing links provided by Youtube. Those also won't work:
Now all you need to do to make videos embed is cut the "S" from https and &feature=youtu.be.
Example in BB code:
- Code: Select all
Video that won't work:
Same video, now working:
The above mentioned code piece in action:
There you have it. Embed video.
