In progress problems linking U tube videos

Post by steventruman on February 1st 2012, 11:10 pm

Evening all.

I post U tube videos on my forum from time to time, I normally copy the embed link from the video im watch and post that.
Normally when i do this it shows up the start of the video and you just click play.
Last couple of days ive tried to do this and i keep getting this link

<object style="height: 390px; width: 640px"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/TmqRiBMr_hs?version=3&feature=player_detailpage"><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always"><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/TmqRiBMr_hs?version=3&feature=player_detailpage" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" allowScriptAccess="always" width="640" height="360"></object>

It doesn't show the video as it used to just shows the link, there nothing even to click on to take you there either.
Has something changed on the forums or is this a U tube problem?

And if you can't get the embed code to work, there is a simpler method of posting YouTube videos. Simply use the YouTube tags:

Code:
[youtube]video link here[/youtube]

Make sure that HTML is enabled as said above. Smile

One more thing to add, Be sure when you enable your html in the ACP that you also have it enabled in your profile preferences Smile

Do you have your html set to always allow html in your profile preferences as well? And be sure you are not in your post option that you have allow html set before posting.

Profile>profile preferences>Always allow html and hit save

.

Is it links or embed codes?
You obviously do not have one of your settings on correctly.

If other members can post embed codes then you know it's working. So this means you are not allowing the option of html when you are posting, Or you do not have always allow html set in your profile preferences.. If the html was not enabled at all, then it would not work for anyone.

But now you are saying links so i do not know what your doing? Sad

Other then that you will have to send me a temp password to log in your account so i can look and send set it for you.

Yeah man not sure what you was doing?
Everything was set up correctly and works fine.
The only thing i can think of is that you was not any embed code or youtube tags
and was just putting the share link?

Hears the link with examples on your forum.

Yeah i don't know, labtop or not it should play.
If you had to install flash player or update it it would usually tell you.

That's the only thing i can think of? is that you do not have your flash player installed on the labtop?

But do other youtube videos play on your labtop? if so then it's not that.
