Embedded YouTube Test Thread

OK, full link (the one in the address window of the browser) posts as a hyperlink. The Share link (the one in the Share box below the video on YouTube) auto-posts on the boare with the UBB [media ] [/media ] tags.

 

It's this latter than I cannot see with Chromium/Chrome once it's posted here. It's just a blank spot in the post box.

 

I'm going to check this with Opera and Firefox right now.

And yet, embedded Youtube vids work fine in Chromium/Chrome on any non-IP.Board site. That still makes it an IP.Board issue, I would think.

 

Searched online for over an hour now. Can't find anything that fixes this. :(

I thought about that, Robert. However, I have the same issue in Chromium/Chrome with all my extensions disabled, including https everywhere. :(

Maybe a corrupted installation?

 

Maybe uninstall, then download and reinstall?

 

Maybe remove the .folder/files before installing again.

 

Suggest you sync your bookmarks at the very least with your GMail address sign on before doing that.

 

Also suggest you try true Google Chrome and not Chromium, if you are using Chromium.

Nah... can't be. I experience the same issue in Chromium/Chrome in all of my systems... main, laptop, and shop. :(

 

Can you see the embedded Youtube vid above in your Chrome, Fran?

There are two methods in that post above: a raw link to the vid and an embedded player link. I can see the raw link, but not the embedded one. The later is just a blank area in the post box, like a bunch of carriage returns.

Nope. Still not working for me, Josh. However, if you got any Chrome/Chromium updates in Arch, I won't see them till I re-compile a new version from source in my Slackware.

Try changing https to http and see if it works.

Well, when I do http instead of https, I get a gray box with a puzzle piece in it that says "This plug-in not supported."

Did you reinstall pepperflash or chromium to fix?

 

And for any who are wondering, this may be a Linux only situation. Will have to check Windows and Mac later.

I recently uninstalled the flash player work around that made YouTube work in Firefox on Ubuntu. Now viewing embedded videos does not work here for me either. Amazon Prime and Hulu videos do not work anymore either.

 

Using Chrome on Ubuntu it all works fine here, on Amazon, and everywhere else I checked except Hulu.

Embedding test using [ media]video URL[ /media] (no spaces and no https):

There we go. That worked. :)

 

Not for me... I didn't even see the link until I quoted your message above. Chrome 64bit.
